For me, music is more than just art. Music is more of a force, able to stir one's emotions, awaken one's senses, and unite people under a common denominator. It is an essential part to my life.

On November 14th of this year, the London based co-ed duo Elephant released their Assembly EP. I am pretty bummed I didn't catch wind of it sooner, it would've made for some great listening over the past month. But considering it's December 14th now, I guess it's appropriate to give a shout out to Elephant today on the release's one month anniversary and celebrate the fact I can hear Assembly from here on out. A reason for its draw is Amelia Rivas's inviting ethereal vocals, which for me is a big plus. I am sucker for beautiful girl voices, and her smooth delivery works perfect with the synth-driven EP. Behind each song is Elephant's philosophy, which states: "Songwriting and documentation should only be accomplished by the turn of the night, and should never leave the comfort and safety of the bedroom". Sexual? I don't know, but either way Elephant accomplish a warm atmosphere in their songs that does indeed sound comforting. Check out "Assembly" below, and then head over to Bandcamp to grab to EP free o' charge. Peaaccceeee.
