Every once in awhile a really good new band puts out a CD that really catches your attention. Sometimes it may take you awhile to realize their talent or potential, and other times it's instant. With this years' release of new 4-piece rock band The Elms 5-song EP, this holds true. I must be honest to say that at first listen, I wasn't too impressed, but the more I spun it, the more I liked it and I believe The Elms have potential to be one of the best new releases of the year.
The Elms produce solid rock tunes, propelled by catchy rhythms and thoughtful lyrics. Where the vocals may fall short, the instrumentation recovers to carry the songs through. Their sound has been compared to the likes of Oasis, Foo Fighters, Radiohead, and the Beatles while still having their own sound. Highlights on the album are "Lifeboat" and "Goodnight Rosa," with the prior being the most catchy and radio friendly.
So if you're looking for a refreshing new rock band in the Christian music scene as an alternative to what's out there in the music world, tune into The Elms. I'm looking forward to see what the band cooks up for their full project later this year.- Review date: 2/14/00, written by John DiBiase
