While Elephant Stone are no strangers to the psych rock scene, they’ve managed to stay relevant over the last few years because they aren’t afraid to stray from that classic “psych” sound.
From album to album, they’ve put out catchy pop music that often carries with it a heavy Eastern influence (lush sitar and tabla jams and plenty of reverb), but they’re certainly not a one trick pony.
Last year’s The Three Poisons introduced us to a different side of the band. They began to shed some of their psych pop sound in favor of heavy bass grooves and melodies that you could really dance to. They’ve pressed on in this new direction with their latest single “Where I’m Going”.
The synth heavy track takes Elephant Stone another step further into the realm of psychedelic dance music. Singer/Bassist Rishi Dhir’s vocals float effortlessly over a driving beat that is hard not to tap your foot and groove to. If Elliott Smith did guest vocals on a Gang of Four song, it might’ve sounded something like this.
