Elephant readies debut for Memphis Industries

Elephant, the London duo comprising Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck, finally revealed details of their debut album.  Set for release on Memphis Industries on April 29 and titled Sky Swimming, the album is a seductive, night time delight of a record, all trilling keyboards, swooping melodies, broken hip hop beats, looped strings and Amelia’s uniquely curved vocals.
Highlights include current single “Elusive Youth” plus last year’s sensational tracks “Skyscraper” (a bonafide hit in France) and “Shapeshifter,” Sky Swimming is a  fibrous collection of songs about relationships – their own included, which broke down during the making of the album – hazy memories and twisted dreams.
With the single “Elusive Youth” unveiled last week on Pitchfork, Elephant have also shared the b-side “Statuesque” right here.
They’ve also put together a mixtape of tracks that helped inspire them during the writing of Sky Swimming, available to stream here.
Elephant will be playing in Paris 10th April at Point Ephémère, as part of their label’s Paris, Memphis night. Tickets here.  UK shows to be announced very soon.
