Elevator | Indie88 black box sessions

Last month, Hamilton’s indie-rock trio Elevator released their first album The words you said still move me Going through Arts and Crafts.

Although this is the band’s first full album, the trio have been playing together for over a decade. They performed in bars and tiny apartments until they officially formed Ellevator in 2017. They signed with Arts & Crafts and released their debut EP in 2018. Along the way, they shared stages with artists such as Bishop Briggs, Arkells and Cold War Kids. . They first visited us for a Black Box Session in 2018.

Ellevator draws inspiration from artists such as U2, Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush, as well as indie bands like Spoon and Death Cab for Cutie. The band even teamed up with Death Cab guitarist Chris Walla to produce the new album.

Elevator – “Slip”

Ellevator visited us to perform two tracks from the album, “Slip” and “Party Trick”. “A friend told me being in a band means never growing up,” Nabi Sue Bersche says of “Party Trick.”

“It’s easy to feel like Peter Pan on tour, all the trappings of adulthood at a hundred track stops and a thousand miles in the rearview mirror. I started writing this song for my teenage self: a fickle, insecure child who shows confidence. I would jump into all the different cliques like a self-proclaimed Ferris Bueller, leaving just before friendships could settle down. Being on the road brought out those same old trends: keep everything level, don’t go overboard.”
