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.
