Citing influences ranging from This Will Destroy You to Olafur Arnalds, THE ELIJAH entwine the atmospheric and progressive fundamentals of post-rock with intelligent orchestration and huge amounts of controlled experimentation. Determined to make a record that sounds like no other, The Elijah took to recording the album in an abandoned mansion in the Shropshire countryside, creating the tones and ambience with the natural reverb, resonance and atmosphere of the structure in place of digital effects. The result is a luscious and organic myriad of textures that are as overwhelmingly huge as they are subtle.
