With plenty of buzz swirling around them after the BBC Radio approved single “Fashanu” last year, UK indie-pop dance rockers Elephants and Castles return with their latest chart aiming endeavor. Elephants and Castles now share “L I L O”, off of the band’s upcoming release on February 23rd via Animal Farm Records.
The track is clean, driving piece of classic dance-alt rock which builds upon a steady rhythmic surface and builds towards a contained cacophonous crescendo. “L I L O” is a wonderful construction and interesting juxtaposition to “Fashanu”, a tribute to footballer Justin Fashanu who committed suicide after tensions related to his sexuality and sexual assault charges.
