Bristol experimental pop trio Elder Island are described as falling somewhere between The xx, Maribou State, Quantic Soul Orchestra, and Mount Kimbie with their neo-soulful, downtempo grooving tunes. They put that fascinating fusion on full display in Black Fur, a seductive cut from their sophomore EP, Seeds In Sand. Black Fur is a finger snapping, sultry smoldering jam with a lithe and funky deep house groove. You’ll want to get up and twirl along with the glamorous and sophisticated song. Stream Seeds In Sand in full on Soundcloud, here.

New Bristol (UK) trio Elder Island brightens up our session with The Big Unknown, their second single off their debut self-titled EP, out July 29 on Four Thieves Records. Elder Island utilizes cello with their endless lush layers of instruments, and I find I tend to really dig bands that use said instruments in creative fashion (ie. Clean Bandit, Geographer, etc). The Big Unknown is incredibly catchy, plucky, and light, with ample funky groove. It also brings to mind some of the music I really love by Arthur Beatrice. For more Elder Island, stream first single What It’s Worth below, a hand clapping, finger snapping good time that carries an undercurrent of mournfulness. It reminds me some of Sylvan Esso’s experimental folk pop.
