Mysterious object reveals, the drum sound from the rite arouses. Flares are blazing, the soul slides through water surface. The breath lits up the air, the body as a sacrifice. I hear myself, in this dream.
The third original album from Elephant Gym <Dreams> records 12 songs (13 songs in Japanese edition). Discovering the deep space-time continuum that consciousness cannot capture.
Apart from band instruments, this album blends wind instruments, traditional dums, Taiwanese narrative songs. Collaborating with Hakka singer-song-writer Lin Sheng Xiang and pop-musician 9m88, who are remarkable in jazz, soul and R&B genre, this album narrates a fantastical dream that crosses the boundary. After receiving the album, please do close your eyes, enjoy the dream.
Formed in 2012, Elephant Gym is a three-piece band from Kaohsiung, Taiwan, known for melodic and emotional bass-driven tracks filled with gentle, beautiful and rhythmic guitar and drum ensemble.
