Elephant Revival is a folk music group from Nederland, Colorado, formed in 2006. Their style of music is often referred to as "transcendental folk," which incorporates elements of Scottish/Celtic fiddle tunes, original folk pieces, traditional ballads, bluegrass, psychedelic country, indie rock, reggae, 1940s/1950s jazz standards and an occasional hip-hop beat. All members of the band are multi-instrumentalists.
Petals is an album by Elephant Revival that was produced by Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive, Langhorne Slim) and mixed by Brian Deck (Iron & Wine, Modest Mouse, Josh Ritter). The album embodies a deepening, as the quintet dives into themes of loss and rebirth, time and memory, love unbound by body or farewell. It is a thanksgiving and a prayer for what endures and returns.
The music maintains its roots in American and Celtic songcraft, but on Petals, the band achieves a compositional maturity that, in moments, can evoke the modern classical ensemble. Eclecticism, though a key feature of their sound, has never been the point. For these multi-instrumentalists, these singers and writers, sound and song serve one another: the play between instrumentation, composition, emotion and restraint is an organic unfolding. It is ultimately an adventurous album.
