Weekly Nostalgia: Elliott

Posted by: Rich Duncan (07/29/09)
Elliott was a band from the mid 90ís until roughly 2003. The band released three albums over the duration of their career starting with the raw and aggressive U.S. Songs, which caused them to be lumped into the mid-90ís emo movement and compared to the other bands of the genre. The bandís second album, False Cathedrals, was a transformation of the bandís sound as they dropped the more straightforward approach of U.S. Songs and began crafting more lushly arranged songs that left listeners in awe of their stunning beauty. Their last album, Song In The Air, found the band further developing the sound developed on False Cathedrals and adding a string quartet to flesh out the songs. Whether you prefer the raw aggressive nature of the bands early days or the atmospheric soundscapes of the last two albums, there is no denying that Elliott was a special band. If you were a fan of the band, I suggest listening to their catalog today and listing your memories in the replies.

Great band. Genuine dudes as well, even though the singer would always be hassled at live shows for resembling Moby.

Toured with FSF and The Beautiful Mistake. Very awesome show

False Cathedrals is a favorite. This band somehow manages to bring upon musical intensity while holding on to their smooth sound.

I always thought "Drive onto Me" would end up in a car commercial.
