I’m not entirely sure what exactly Electronic-Industrial-Pop-Rock is supposed to sound like. But, damned if Elevaded didn’t smash it Friday night at Empire Control Room with the freakiest, most dazzling dance party of Hot Summer Nights. Sandwiched in between Austin heavy-hitters, Megafauna, BLXPLTN and Blastfamous USA, the industrial-pop trio wrecked Friday’s release party for the band’s latest single, ‘Another Round’. The power-pop, Balboa-ballad is the second single from Elevaded and throws some nasty punches with whirling electronics, pounding bass and roaring vocals. It’s a raging, pop-rock anthem with an empowering, ‘take no shit’ attitude and steel determination that serves as a knockout introduction for this promising trio.
You can catch Elevaded next on August 15th at Mohawk and help the band celebrate the launch of their first tour with special guests SIGNY and Black Basements. In the meantime, check out Elevaded’s latest single ‘Another Round’ and some of the luminescent highlights from the single release party.
