Biography

BIO

Elusive Parallelograms sound like your favorite band. If not on this track, then on the next one. Or the one after that. Or the one on the last album you didn’t get. Which you should. Get. Like, now. It’s totally different than the new disc. Which you should also get. Like, now.

Whatever your favorite rock genre, Elusive Parallelograms play that, awesomely. And your second favorite genre. And a couple they just made up that you’ll love.

Elusive Parallelograms called their 2008 debut, “And Everything Changes,” and they weren’t kidding. Their 2 LPs and 3 EPs are where power pop meets shoegaze meets brainy prog meets acoustic instrumentals meets psychedelia meets metal pounding on metal, sometimes all on the same track. Whatever this song’s experiment may be, you’ll hear guitars bent at sharp angles, beauteous sounds bursting at unexpected moments, cryptic lyrics whose slick hooks dig in deep but whose puzzles won’t crack on one listen.

Whoever your favorite producer is … Well FUCK that guy — Elusive Parallelograms are DIY from the first scratch of pencil on paper to the last careful tick of the dials at their self-built studio in Milwaukee’s Bayview neighborhood.

Whoever your favorite Elusive Parallelogram is … Look, they’re ALL dreamy, but don’t get attached. In this ever-evolving collective, the music, and where it’s going next, calls all the shots.

    Hello Wisconsinites. I'm not sure if you guys have anything to do with this site or not, but I just finished my first listening of And Everything Changes and I really dug it. Great work. Is there a release with Bragging Rights on it? I love that track. Anyways, great work.
