Since their debut in 2009, the psych-pop creation of Rishi Dhir along with collaborators Miles Dupire (drums) and Robbie MacArthur (guitar), and Jason Kent (keys/guitar), have released five critically-acclaimed LPs and two EPs, toured extensively throughout North America and Europe, been nominated for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize and picked up praise from the likes of NPR, Brooklyn Vegan, Consequence of Sound, Rolling Stone, Clash Magazine and more. As a highly-regarded sitar player, Dhir has also collaborated with indie-rock icons (Beck) and legendary cult bands (The Brian Jonestown Massacre).
“‘The Three Poisons’ is rich with murky grooves, swirling leads and spacey solos.”
"[‘La fusée du chagrin’]...one of the most driving, high-energy songs Elephant Stone have ever released, with a relentless motorik beat that would make King Gizzard jealous."
“[‘Fox on the Run’] It’s easy to get lost in, as Dhir’s distorted physique gets swallowed up by pulsing psychedelic imagery.
“[‘Knock You From Yr Mountain’] The anthemic song plays like a reverb-filled, modern take on ‘We Will Rock You,’ featuring frontman Rishi Dhir’s swaggering snarl.”
“[‘Hollow’]…a dense complex affair, pitting their refreshing psychedelia against stirring, potent themes.”
