First Listen: The Ellipsis – Cold Cactus
- Cold Cactus The Ellipsis 3:14
The Ellipsis have always been a force to be reckoned with. Just check out their video for “Wasted Potential Me”. And now they have continued their evolution of revolution with their new single titled “Cold Cactus”. I have to say this outright; these guys are truly formidable songwriters. Of course, they are musicians of the highest caliber, but after steadily listening to their music for the last few months I feel that it is safe to say that their songwriting skills are what solidify them as a global act and “Cold Cactus” is just further proof of that fact by being a perfect balance of heavy and hook. Well done!
About The Ellipsis
The last single from The Ellipsis ‘Wasted Potential Me’ received extensive plays on over a hundred stations, including Kerrang! Radio and on BBC Radio 1.
Now, they’re back with another contemporary and powerful song called ‘Cold Cactus’ which is just as infectious as their previous release.
Formed in 2013, the lads are still only 20 years old but show amazing maturity in their writing and their performances. They have played venues up and down the country and have had a summer of festival appearances, recently opening The Godiva Festival in their hometown of Coventry.
Henry Bristow is an incredible front man, driven on by the powerhouse that is drummer Alex Bonsor. Founding member and cool lead guitarist John Connearn is stunning to watch and listen to and their versatile bassist Harry Green keeps the band together and provides some stunning high harmonies for their rock/pop songs.
It’s possible to get a slight flavour of how awesome they are on stage by watching the promotional video for Cold Cactus which is a compilation of some of the footage from their Godiva Festival appearance.
‘Cold Cactus’ is about someone feeling out of place, physically and emotionally, about not being in the space they feel they should be right now. This song will certainly put The Ellipsis where ‘they’ should be… right on top!
