Elora have returned with their impressive new release, “Tú”. Some of you may remember their last outing, “Cada día es así“. This is a more groove oriented outing with more concentration on chord progression. In some respects it reminds me of the early offerings of U2 (“Boy, “October”) and New Order (“Movement”, “Power, Corruption & Lies”). The fact that the vocals on this album are in Spanish will mean almost nothing to the true music enthusiast. The music and harmony on every track, especially “Solo tú sabes”, “Te irá mejor”, and the title track, actually have the Spanish factor working FOR the music because the syntax really compliments the harmony as much as the chord progressions compliment the melody. There is your theory lesson for the day. Excellent album!
“Tú” by Elora is out now via Custom Made Music.
