Upon a hill in Gusiely a group of trees grew to form the silhouette of a herd of elephants. Under these elephant trees grew Martha and Sam, who along with their friends found the only way they could make it through this twisted society as teenagers was to write and play MUSIC.
Now in their 20s the Elephant Trees have become a symbol [=] quite literally of remembering your roots whilst exploring exactly who you are and embracing every aspect of that INDIVIDUALITY. It's not a great band name but 'The Elephant Trees' ethos isn't about being that cool or trendiest band on social media. They are about creating a community and safe space for everyone that has ever felt out of place or lost.
Mental health, sexuality and 'growing up' to discover the world's complexities form the basis of the songs Martha writes, pouring out her findings on stage as Sam and Tom (resident drummer until he inevitably becomes Prime Minister) choatically create a sonic background upon which Martha preaches her often intricate words.
The fanbase for this dubbed "chaotic mess" is growing by the day, picking up gig goers across the UK and Europe.
After a summer of festivals which saw them play Isle of Wight Festival, The Great Escape - Alt Escape, Dot to Dot, Live at Leeds and Liverpool SoundCity they are positioning themselves to release a new wave of music and visual content.
