The Bay Area’s Elle have just announced their debut self-titled EP, out November 18th via Conditions Records. Elle is now streaming in full via The AV Club. Elle, featuring members of Loma Prieta, Beau Navire and Yearbooks, will release the album digitally on Bandcamp and across digital service providers on November 18th. Pre-orders for their 12″ vinyl record, coming out in the Spring of 2017, are available now via Conditions Records. A quote from the band on the song “Pulse,” which can be heard on Elle, can be found below.
“We played with the term in the past but it rings true now. “Pulse” is a soul punk song. It speaks from the soul. It says something from a very guttural, emotional, reactive place. It says something very intrinsic and deliberate. We did something on purpose, we meant it, we mean it. Bodies are on the line that we will strive to protect, but we also cherish the soul.
We believe in the magic and meaning of the special and different people in our lives. Their contributions past, present and future. Their struggle now, their struggle then. Their really real fears and their really real hopes. Those are the things we want people to remember. We want people to remember what we all mean, who we all are, who we all tried to be in the best way. The things we all wanted to mean to people. All of our family, our friends, our lovers. That we all have an opportunity to say something that is special and nothing to shy away from.
This is the art we present and why we do this.
It is not pretense, it is pure feeling.” – Elle

Featuring members of Beau Navire, Loma Prieta and Yearbooks, the track record and tradition of assembling sounds that swell and crash like waves is ever-present.
Their self-titled debut was recorded at the Atomic Garden with Jack Shirley and is set to be released by Conditions Records.
