Being a happy band is not an easy choice. Happy bands by their very nature attract suspicion, we like our artists to be tormented, tortured, driven by dark passions and psychoses, starving in attic rooms or laid out on tenement floors.
THE ELWINS couldn’t be further from this if they tried. Each track on their debut album, And I Thank You resonates with the joy of its creation and the happiness that fills the room when these four young Canadians take up their instruments and play. This is not an issue for THE ELWINS, they are content to use their music to bring joy. The question is, can you put down your preconceptions and embrace a debut that sparkles with the kind of guitar pop last seen round these parts when THE SHINS were in their infancy?
Formed in Ontario in 2008 by childhood friends Travis and Matt, THE ELWINS weren’t really a serious proposition to begin with by their own admission until the addition of Feurd, a face around the music scene and well known to the pair. That commitment got tongues wagging and the appearance of their debut eponymous EP in 2010 not only led to tips from tastemakers across the country but a string of support slots in Canada and the USA with the likes of Brendan Canning, TOKYO POLICE CLUB and BORN RUFFIANS alongside appearances at South By South West, CMW and Pop Montreal.
