After college they moved to New York City, where they have honed and refined the sound we hear in their most recent single,“Hollywood Hills''.
The duo have been tenaciously honing their craft in the midst of all The challenges New York has thrown at them. From atmospheric verses and alluring pre-choruses to captivating and up-beat choruses, Elephant in the Room combine their production and vocal skills to craft their most dynamic work to date. This third single is a strong statement of their vocation as potential big hitters in the music industry. Hollywood Hills is a personal account of how Elephant in the Room struggled with expectation versus reality, moving from Ireland to New York.
Starting gently on an atmospheric note with a piano and a few beats along, this mellow track turns into a catchy piece once the vocal comes in and the rhytm picks up. The piano adds an element of sadness, darkness and you get the feeling of longing from the vocal delivery too. This comes in contrast with the cheerful pop melody.
