Elstow is a 5 piece band from Sydney, founded on Jared Shaw and Chel Browne’s mutual appreciation of the melodic folk and psychedelic sounds of the 60s.
Borrowing the name of the building they were living in, Elstow was born out of an appreciation for the melodic folk stylings of sixties heroes Simon & Garfunkel and The Mamas & The Papas. Initially a duo, Jared Shaw and Chel Browne played Peats Ridge Festival in 2012 on the back of a few rough demos before taking some time off to travel and come to grips with their wider musical influences.
In 2013 Elstow expanded to incorporate five members. Drawing on the west coast psychedelic sounds of bands such as Jefferson Airplane and Peanut Butter Conspiracy, as well as nineties alt-psych idols Brian Jonestown Massacre and Mazzy Star, Elstow started work on their debut EP.
To be released in 2014, the result is a five track EP comprised of dreamy psychedelic landscapes fused with a unique folk sensibility. Combining surreal and at times haunting atmospherics with a subtle, personal approach, it’s their own variety of neo-psychedelic-folk pop.
