カナダ/ハミルトン拠点のインディーポップバンド Ellevatorが、8/19にArts & Crafts Productions Inc.からリリースしたニューシングル 'Easy'のMVを公開!

ディレクターは Cam Veitch。

Ellevatorは Nabi Sue Bersche, Tyler Bersche, Elliott Gwynneの3人組。2018年発表のデビューEPから徐々に注目を集め、これまでに Amber Run, Banners, Our Lady Peace, Arkells, Bishop Briggs, Cold War Kidsらと共演してきたバンドです。

プロデュースに Chris Walla (ex-Death Cab For Cutie)を迎えた'Easy'は、来年初めにリリース予定のデビューアルバム収録曲。スタジアム・ロックのような仰々しさと、カルト的な信仰のもとで育ったボーカリストが歌う善と悪の関係について、という2点の距離と差がユニークだと思った曲。


“I was raised in the world of charismatic Christianity – an offshoot of Pentecostalism. God was magic and prophetic ecstasies happened every Sunday. As a child, I spoke in tongues and prayed until my body swayed with a gentle force like wind knocking me backward. A deep and abiding love of the natural world took hold of me. I witnessed firsthand the wild power of music – how it could uplift, ensnare, console, inspire.”

“When I was 17 I moved to the other side of the world and joined what would most accurately be described as a cult. I prayed for strangers I met in parking lots. I shut my eyes and read the dappled light between my lashes like tea leaves that could divine the future. Vulnerability was a badge in that community so I learned to overshare. Teachings were given in the language of freedom while the stiff hand of purity reduced my body to a shameful temptation. Growing up like that gave me a love of music, a nose for bullshit, and a lot to unravel. This song is about the good and evil things we are raised to believe. I was held captive by an ideology that severely limited my life and my perspective of the world around me. It’s a process I’m still in the middle of, this work of extraction.” - Nabi Sue Bersche
