about

These ten songs mark the end of a two-year process of collaboration with producer Karl Sveinsson of Queens Ark Audio and were mastered by the inimitable George Atkins (80 Hertz).

Elk formed in 2010 from the break up of math-jazz pioneers Andy, Glenn and Ritch (TAAE) and played a handful of gigs before starting the process that created Herd Songs. The songs were written on trains, motorways and in neon-lit industrial spaces between Manchester, London and Grimsby on time stolen from other affairs.

"Lush, complex and jazzy indie rock geniuses” (Burn the Jukebox)

“Thoughtfully arranged, perfectly realised, refined” (Michael Glenister of Carefully Planned)

“Resplendent with melody over a jittering
backing that belies a love of 90s intelligent rock, pretty and complex" (Rough Trade Records)
