And just when you thought you’d heard the last of Miss Elm (you didn’t really, did you?), guess who’s back with a brand new track? This one has been a long time in the making, and offers a change of pace from the last few releases. What do we mean by “change of pace”? We’re glad you asked. Have a listen on bandcamp:
Brisbane four-piece Miss Elm have been quietly gathering their thoughts, evading the limelight, and taking a collective breath. The band is evolving, and so, too, is their music.
Dodging Tigers, the brooding brother of 2015 single Ice Man, is a departure from “nice”, a departure from “little”. Recorded and produced by Phil Graham, and mastered by Adam Quaife, the track explores uncertainty, fear, and the feeling of handing your heart to someone who drops it.
The first Elm track to feature a fully-fledged guitar solo, Dodging Tigers is a creeping venture into the world of dark, crunchy synth, and sweet, poisonous vocals. The track is an ode to anxiety, a love song about desperately avoiding love.
Dodging Tigers, the last scheduled Elm release for the foreseeable future, is now available for download.
Miss Elm are Erin Harrington, Lucinda Bopf, James Lord, and James Peeters.
