2006 – present (11 years)
"did you mean elephants?" No! We did not! elefants are not misspelled, they are a band. One of those bands that are hard to google but easy to dance to. The name: german Elefant meets english plural "s". The music: knows neither borders nor proper spelling. But then again what genre of music does? Country music that is true. But elefants are not a country band. They play that kind of music that refers to itself as "new new wave". This wave feeds of the energy that bands like The Who, The Clash and The Libertines have put into it (unknowingly of the consequences it seems). Huge as it has gotten, filled with bands like Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party, The Rakes, Arctic Monkeys and The Strokes, it seems as if it is breaking over the elefants. But no worries. They are thick skinned. They might not be surfing yet but they are full of energy. They have not been flushed away - they will flush you away if you dare come near them. So did we mean elephants? Who bloody cares? Keep on playing lads, we wanne dance!
