WHO ARE THE ELEPHANTS?
Drawing comparisons to alt rock bands of the 90's, and with guitar riffs inspired by classic rock acts like Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix, The Relevant Elephants offer a distinct sound that truly stands out in today's musical landscape. Zack Hankins (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Drew Lucas (vocals, lead guitar) provide a dual frontman attack, while Berklee College of Music alumnus Adam Khalil (bass, backup vocals) adds a layer of melodic depth to their compositions.
The Elephants released their debut EP in April of 2015, promoted by shows in New York, Detroit, and Chicago. The collection of songs was very well-received by numerous outlets including Diffuser, which described the EP as “packed with warm, catchy melodies, and instantly lovable guitar riffs and musical arrangements”. The band recently released their latest single “Rock n’ Roll Band," of which Indie Minded mused: “[The track] poses the question ‘Do we need another Rock n’ Roll band?’ and I’m here to say yes...yes we do. What a great track from these guys”. The band was personally named by Stephen Colbert at a Q&A session, and are currently collaborating with visual artists from the TV shows Aqua Teen Hunger Force, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Archer.
