Originating from Brighton, Elandra symbolizes both sonic innovation and raw emotion. Under the guidance of the magnetic Paolo Siviero, this dynamic art rock collective effortlessly blends psychedelia, indie rock, and funk, immersing listeners in a captivating sonic universe.

Citing iconic bands like Tame Impala, Radiohead, The Strokes, MGMT, and Empire of the Sun, as the main inspiration, Elandra’s music is both familiar and uniquely its own. With Siviero’s heartfelt lyrics and vibrant rhythms, the band continually pushes the boundaries of their musical journey.

In their latest release, This City Is Not For Me, Elandra explores themes of longing and urban alienation with fuzzy guitars and infectious rhythms.

Approaching their self-titled EP release on April 19th, This City Is Not For Me previews the band’s evolution with a hypnotic blend of clavi synths, fuzzy guitars, and rich backing vocal layers.

Beyond studio recordings, Elandra’s live performances are dynamic, defying genres. From supporting acts like Wavechase to headlining at The Brunswick, they’ve left a lasting impression in Brighton’s music scene.

With headline gigs at venues like Hope and Ruin and Prince Albert, Elandra invites audiences on an emotive journey through their evolving sonic landscape.
