Ellevator is a band from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Raised on the cool precision oflate-aughts guitar music and the melodrama of post-rock, they hold lean hooks andsweeping crescendos in perfect tension. Frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche wields herarresting lyricism with clear-eyed lucidity, drawing deeply personal reflections from bigthemes like power, love, and loss. Citing influences that range from stadium limelight (Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush) to the warm glow of indie haunts (Feist, Spoon, Death CabFor Cutie) Ellevator’s music hits with the impact of great pop songs and the fierce emotional resonance of their rock and roll heroes.
Following the release of their eponymous debut EP in 2018, Ellevator cut their teeth onthe road, sharing stages with the likes of Amber Run, Banners, Our Lady Peace, NowNow, Arkells, Bishop Briggs, Cold War Kids, and Dear Rouge.
Earlier this year, the band released their first LP ‘The Words You Spoke Still Move Me’.Produced by indie-rock luminary Chris Walla—former guitarist and foundingmember of Death Cab for Cutie—the album inhabits an emotional landscape that is bothbreathtakingly intimate and impossibly vast, documenting various experiences to turn universal (existential longing, romantic power struggles, the neverending work oftrueself-discovery) and highly specific(e.g.,frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche’s journey inextracting herself from a cult) storytellinginto a truly hypnotic body of work, giving rise tothe kind of radiant open-heartedness that radically transforms our own perspective.
