Reliably informed

Held in high esteem on the local scene for their notably roaring rock loaded with agile melodies, the new single Biodegradable from Gateshead’s Elephant Memoirs is true to form.

The range in composition, especially in the solo lead voice, is exuded with ease and without ego; the band are here to do a job and they do it well. Sonically classed as loud or dense, the track is in no way brash, executed without a slap in the face but instead with the more stable construction of a plump wall of sound. Philosophical lyrics are heard and inhaled: “Kindest topless the meanest children when anybody else proceeds to be bitter.” Compact, confident and collected.
