Early in 2017, ELEL frontman Ben Elkins went through a divorce with the band’s namesake. Soon after, he watched half the members of the group their record label walk away.
Each step seemed impossible to endure. He found that working on new music became as vital as eating or breathing. "These are survival songs" says Elkins. "They've kept me alive this year.”
Survival brings clarity and Ben, along with two founding members Tim Cook and Zach Tichenor, have clearly found their way forward. They’ve recorded a slew of new songs and have started to release them one by one, beginning with “Be Yeah” earlier in 2018.
Now, ELEL release their second single of 2018 “Early In The Morning,” a brash pop song not unlike their break-out “40 Watt,” the lead single off their debut album “Geode” (Mom+Pop Music). Elkins solo vocal is unveiled in this electric smash as he sings of his longing to be closer to someone he loves. Says Elkins, “When everything falls apart, you stop being careful with your art. You get messy and go out of bounds. I wanted to see what we could make if we took away the rules. It became really exciting, I had to keep going.”
The band has been quiet for a year after touring the country, appearing in a feature film, and riding the wave of it’s debut release. Now, they’re excited to do it again ten fold in this new chapter of ELEL!
