Fiery alt-pop quartet Miss Elm have been busy making sweet, sweet music. Following two previous music releases, hundreds of gigs, and many magical hours spent in the studio, the group is now poised to drop their Hybrid EP right onto your ear-drums (and perhaps into your heart).
Miss Elm invite you to leave your notions of genre at the door, and step into a space where melodica and crunchy synthesisers make perfect bedfellows. Welcome to ‘Hybrid’.
EP opener and first single, ‘Bitter Taste’, gives the first hint that Miss Elm are heading into deeper, darker territory. Bright, bouncy ‘Facebook Never Lies’ is a middle-finger to dodgy friends that you can dance to. Get lost in the swelling piano and heavy drums of ‘Invisible Lines’, then snap wide awake with punchy synth and bass in ‘Puzzle Pieces’. Rounding out the release is the uplifting ‘Silence’, a track that defies its name.
Hybrid was mastered by Dave Neil, and recorded, mixed, and produced by Michael Carpenter at Love Hz Studios (Sydney). All tracks on Hybrid feature: Erin Harrington on lead vocals, piano, and ukulele; James Peeters on drums and percussion; James Lord on bass guitar and glockenspiel; and Lucinda Bopf on flute, synthesiser, backing vocals, and melodica.
HYBRID: Experience the next phase of Elm; sweet meets dark for a brand-new pop sound.
