Sludgy Prog Rock Outfit Elephant Tree Unveil New Single, “Sails”


To those unbeknownst, Elephant Tree are a prog-rock/metal band that will make you feel as if you are tripping on acid with Syd Barrett in a cyanide-laced strawberry field. Test out this theory by playing their newest song, turning off the lights, closing your eyes and allowing the music to take over.

Elephant Tree’s doomy psychedelic sound is evident on the first single, “Sails,” from their third album, Habits, scheduled for release this coming spring. Their melancholy lyrics and heavy rock guitar call to mind to an amalgamation of power trio Sleep and alternative rock legends The Smashing Pumpkins. Listeners who want to hear a preview of the EP can check out a music video of the single below, featuring trippy, distorted visuals that perfectly fit the tone of the music.

For fans located in London, the band is hosting a listening party the day before the album release at the Ghost Whale. Tickets for the show must be bought in advance and include bundles with a craft beer. Imagine sitting in a cozy bar environment listening to Elephant Tree as they bring to life Habits right in from of your eyes! That sounds like an ideal Tuesday night to me.

Habits comes out April 24 via Holy Roar; pre-order here.
