Emerging UK Alt-Rockers, ELESSAR are set to release their new EP, Is This All We Are, on Friday 27th April. The highly-regarded quartet have just dropped a new single, Saudade, and you can watch the video for the track, here – https://youtu.be/nth24LaF9cQ
Formed in 2016, ELESSAR have already amassed a reputation for delivering energetic and passionate live performances. With a clear focus on touring relentlessly across the UK, the band have shared stages with Boston Manor, Crooks, and Alvarez Kings, and toured with Altered Sky and Speaking in Shadows. In April 2016, the industrious quartet released their debut EP, Reflections, which was produced by Romesh Dodangoda (Kids in Glass Houses, Funeral for a Friend, The Blackout). The EP was greeted with much praise from the UK underground and further solidified the foursome’s emerging status.
ELESSAR’s forthcoming sophomore EP, Is This All We Are, truly raises the bar. Produced by Matt O’Grady (You Me At Six, Deaf Havana, Don Broco), the release promises to elevate the band to new heights. With five slabs of engulfing Emo alt-rock, the EP unites hooky choruses with expansive and inventive guitar lines, framed by muscular rhythm work that will blow the roof off. From their opener and past single, Half Love (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3YAfu-of3U to their past single, In All Honesty (https://youtu.be/wBF6MJsq5pA ), and new single, Saudade (https://youtu.be/nth24LaF9cQ ), the EP genuinely shows ELESSAR’s unique sound and undeniable ability.
