Biography

There are are at least two bands named Elephant Stone:

1. An indie pop band from Montreal, Canada.
2. An alternative rock band from Czestochowa, Poland


1. Just one short year after the release of their acclaimed, Polaris Music Prize-nominated debut The Seven Seas, Montreal’s Elephant Stone returns with The Glass Box EP. Shunning the convenience of modern digital recording, The Glass Box EP was recorded on a vintage Neve console (allegedly used by Led Zeppelin during the Physical Graffiti sessions) to a 16-track 2″ tape machine at Montreal’s infamous Breakglass Studios. Working within the creative confines of an all-analog recording and mixing process, Elephant Stone has given birth to a 5-song suite of inspired power-pop/psyche classics.

Elephant Stone is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Rishi Dhir. A founding member of Montreal pop / psyche veterans the High Dials, Rishi grew disillusioned with the Rock n’ Roll lifestyle and went out on his own in 2006. He spent the next few years studying Indian classical music and performing sitar on records by drone-rock heroes the Black Angels (they named a song after him) and prog-prop innovators the Earlies. In 2008, he found himself drawn back to his love of pop music and The Seven Seas was born. Perfectly melding Rishi’s obsession with the perfect pop song and the trippiest raga, The Seven Seas was warmly embraced by the global indie-scene and long-listed for the 2009 Polaris Music Prize.
