Hills Like Elephants - "Invisible Ink" single

Hills Like Elephants

Hills Like Elephants are ready to make themselves visible to you. The band, which has been breaking new ground in the San Diego scene, are ready to unleash their perfect brand of indie pop onto the masses.

Releasing their first single titled "Invisible Ink," Hills Like Elephants are ready to invade your headphones. The extraordinary track is filled with thumping drum beats, carefully picked melodies, bright and resonating pianos and singer Sean Davenport's dreamy yet upbeat voice. A little bit blues, a little bit Pavement, Hills Like Elephants seem to have the perfect blend that will immediately catch your ears. After all, that is what they have set out to do and they seem to accomplish it flawlessly.

March 27th, 2012 saw the band releasing their debut LP, The Endless Charade (Requiemme Records/ BMG Chrysalis), to adoring fans and curious critics. On the way to becoming one of the most talked about bands this year, Hills Like Elephants is a group that you should check out immediately! Ten tracks that catch your ear with every listen will quickly become an indie classic as they have enough indie pop hooks to fill a warehouse.

Music is something that has always been singer/guitarist Sean Davenport's blood. Starting out at Berklee School of Music in Boston, Davenport traded in school books for guest lists as he play a prominent role in New York City buzz band, Abigail Warchild. Upon the break up of the band, and girl problems in tow, Sean returned to the West Coast where met up with Diego Rojano, from the prominent band Gun Runner. Though things were rocky at the beginning, the two held together and were ready to make Hills Like Elephants a reality. Davenport tried to answer some of his own musical questions while making the album, which are intriguing to say the least.

Described as "if The Pixies hung out with Al Green or if Jay Mascis did an album with Marvin Gaye. Noise meets blues, blues meets ambient, ambient meets that beat that makes your head bob. Animal collective meets Otis Redding's daughter gives birth to a child that listens to psychedelic/dance/indie old and new wave (The War on Dugs, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Vile, the Soft Machine, Tame Impala, Candi Staton, LCD Soundsystem, and James Booker) a culmination of everything inspiring thus far."

This is a special cocktail by Davenport and Co. that you will surely want a taste of. It is these sounds that sum up Hills Like Elephants but by no mean pigeonholes them. Davenport has finally found the musical love of his life....and now it's your turn. Take one listen to Hills Like Elephants' "Invisible Ink," and be prepared to be hooked.
