elvis depressedly is Mathew Cothran and Delaney Mills. Mathew and Delaney live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. They will release the holo pleasures / california dreamin' LP on Run For Cover Records on June 3, 2016, which is both a re-issue of their 2013 holo pleasures EP and a new EP of unreleased material on the B-side, california dreamin'. Tiny Mix Tapes is streaming a new track titled "slip" from the california dreamin' side of the LP today, saying "“slip” does what a track by Elvis Depressedly does best: thoughtful melodies and strong songwriting."
holo pleasures is a 12 minute cult favorite EP amongst the DIY scene and has spawned many bands from its sulky muddled influence. 2015's New Alhambra displayed a fully texturized shift toward brightly melancholic noise-pop, inspired by Cotheran's influences and unsung heroes such as The Waterboys, Prefab Spout and Emperor X.
The duo will tour the UK for the first time in June, following considerable demand for a visit for some time now. All tour dates can be found below. Pre-order for holo pleasures / california dreamin' is available now via the Run For Cover webstore.
