[Album] Elsinore: PUSH/PULL

With undeniable talent and brilliant songwriting, Elsinore reigns triumphant with their new full-length record PUSH/PULL. From the cornfield college towns of Champaign/Urbana Illinois, their sound is everything but small potatoes. These guys are doing everything right and I couldn’t be more excited and impressed with their new record.

The tragically beautiful lyrics and haunting melodies paint a portrait of love, loss, and life in the Midwest. Ryan Groff’s unique and lovely Freddy Mercury-esque voice enchants you, bringing vocals with true heart and conviction. Elsinore chose to re-record the title track and a couple more songs from their Life Inside an Elephant EP.  All of the recreations are a success, putting an upbeat spin on “The Thermostat,” and giving you a chance to fall in love with “Ultraviolence” all over again,  with an electronic Death Cab-ish vibe, killer backbeat and wailing chorus. Their single off the record, “The Art Of Pulling,” is the perfect introduction to the album, presenting a fun, poppy, but well-written track. Give it a listen below and check out the rest of the brand new album, merch, and upcoming shows for Elsinore here.

Before she was an indie music journalist sharing tunes with the likes of you, Brynn performed all over Chicagoland and cut a full-lenth record with her high-energy, indie pop trio, Caught in Your Pockets. She also regularly provides vocals for various homegrown acts, from indie-blues-rock kings, Train Company, to Chi Town hip hop icons in the making, Show You Suck and Legend Haz It. A piano and guitar playing singer songwriter, Brynn double majored in vocal performance and education, and can definitely school you on what sounds amazing.
