Album Review: Lucky Elephant
A trunk packed full of loveliness
Elephants can bring to mind two symbols. Nelly’s allegorical journey was one of emancipation if examined deeper than its childlike semblance; whereas the pachyderm on the Republican Party’s crest brings to mind a recently departed white guy who wasn’t that good with the words. Fortunately, Lucky Elephant travels a path similar to our fabled friend. ‘Starsign Trampoline’ is a celestial debut, brooding with integrity and creativity. From the resplendent lo-fi shoegaze of The Bees-esque ‘Edgar’ to the alluring lyrics of the piano-led ‘Red Ties Vs The Bees’ and ‘Neptune’, Lucky Elephant rouse the listener with organic, visceral builds that transcend darkness to a euphonious light at the end of a tunnel.
