The Elephant Trees Have Announced They Will Play At Leeds Pride 2018
Leeds and Manchester based, The Elephant Trees, are a beautiful mess of luscious riffs, melodic harmonies, and poetic, raw lyrics. A perfect blend of alternative, pop and rock that makes you want to scream and dance like you never have before.
If you're looking for something fresh, you've found it!
Fronted by 20 year old Martha Phillips, her song writing is raw - she leaves nothing unsaid and watching them live is a master class in ‘doing what you love’. Expect high energy and heightened emotions.
Having played O2 Academy, Leeds to 2000 Trees Festival, toured Europe and graced the stage at The Royal Albert Hall - they are no stranger to a big crowd and an even bigger party!
Despite only releasing their debut single in February 2017, The Elephant Trees have amassed an impressive list of accolades and achievements. Virgin Radio’s Edith Bowman sung the band’s praises when they became finalists in the station’s Summer Fresh competition, and the video for the band’s single Monster received over 25,000 views inside a few days of release. Martha also recently supported Boyce Avenue on their sold-out European tour (including a show at the Royal Albert Hall).
With their last single Open Up picking up support from Alt Press, Upset Magazine and Spotify’s Head Of Rock Allison Hagendorf (who selected the song for her Badass Women playlist), the chugging and unpredictable grunge-pop riffs of Hooked are set to win them more new fans.
