As the story goes... Upon the eve of the band’s 100th tour date supporting 2010’s acclaimed Yes Yes Yes full length, drummer Dave Pride was struck by a negligent drunk driver while loading gear into the van. While his injuries were not life threatening, this highly traumatic experience did force the band into an early hibernation where songwriter Ryan Groff discovered the most prolific writing spell of his career.
The single was mixed by new ally Beau Sorenson (Death Cab for Cutie, Sparklehorse), who also provided a deeply hypnotic remix of the title track.
Life Inside an Elephant is as much a wintry meditation on insecure love as it is an assertive proclamation of a young band on the absolute brink of its songwriting potential.
