ELBOW’s music puts us to sleep. Which is really a compliment as those dreamy textures tend to induce a state of blissful relaxation.Listening to
While Mancunians are often known for their swagger and rowdiness, Elbow seem content to continue railing against stereotype by perfecting their own ethereal, sweeping soundtrack.
Strangely, their beautifully created new album The Seldom Seen Kid has actually had the effect of rekindling our total obsession for their 2001 debut Asleep In The Back, an utter classic that demands reinvestigation. It’s one of the most spellbinding records we own and, if anything, time has only improved it.
Every day would be better if you made Elbow the last thing you heard before you fell asleep.
