Fuse tight grooves with deep funky bass-lines, add catchy guitar riffs, outlandish samples and haircuts, pour a passionate vocal melody in and youve got the energetic musical cocktail of Elephant Mojo.
One of Brisbane's buzz bands, Elephant Mojo are hitting the market with their tongues planted firmly in their cheek with the new EP "Cool in America". A commentary on the Australian psyche, the title track hacks into the tall poppy syndrome, making the point that local doesn't necessarily mean inferior.
Elephant Mojo evolved from the suburbs of sunny Brisbane in early 2003, where they quickly became popular on the local scene with their lively songs and overall sense cheekiness on, and off the stage. Their funk laced rock melodies and dynamic dance rhythms equal one well-oiled machine into what can only be recognised as their own distinctive Elephant Mojo sound.
Elephant Mojos debut EP 'Bring It' was released in August 03 and distributed nationally through MGM. The EP captured the contagious Elephant Mojo sound for audiences to appreciate anywhere, anytime.
Elephant Mojos new EP 'Cool In America' is set for August 15 release through Modern / SonyBMG, and the funky foursome are embarking on a brief east coast tour hitting:
