[NO COUNTRY PREMIERE] ELEL’s “Animal” Gets Remixed by MIG50

SXSW 2017 Artist Lounge portrait by Kristen Wrzesniewski/Trove Artist Management

As they hit the road today for a short run of spring dates with Ripe, local indie rockers and longtime site faves ELEL have shared with us a brand new remix of “Animal,” a single from their 2016 debut Geode, to exclusively premiere. Helmed by producer MIG50, the “Animal”remix brings a brighter, shimmering, tonal shift, transforming it into a fun, dance-ready jam from its groovier, moodier, original take.

On the remix, singer Ben Elkins tells us “I was thrilled when Tony [MIG50] reached out and wanted to remix Animal, I never expected to hear such a different version of that song. Our version is really intense but his version is just so joyful. It feels like the end of a movie I wanted to see when I was a kid, where everyone is dancing because everything worked out in the end.”

With more music in the works, it shouldn’t be long until ELEL drop some new tunes; for now, check out a re-imaginging of an old favorite below! You can also catch ELEL and Ripe at Mercy Lounge on June 1 (tickets here), and as part of Frist Fridays on July 28.

Wild Cub Return With New Single “Somewhere”


Three years ago, there was one name at the top of the Nashville indie pop boom, and that name was Wild Cub.  The band signed to Mom+Pop, who released their debut album, Youth, and saw the group explode onto the national scene with cross country tours, major festival slots, radio play, and television appearances.  After retreating from the spotlight (and moving to Los Angeles and Brooklyn) over the past couple of years to write and record new music, we’re thrilled to see Wild Cub re-emerge.  Late last week, they debuted a brand new single “Somewhere,” which sees the band picking up where they left off with boisterous drums and a surprising horn line carrying the new track.

No news yet of a sophomore record or upcoming tour dates, but we would expect that to change in the coming weeks.  In the meantime, dig into “Somewhere” below to get a taste of what Wild Cub have been up to of late.
