About Hey Elbow

Swedish trio Hey Elbow create outlier pop music that incorporates ideas from jazz, improv, and experimental noise. Julia Ringdahl (vocals/guitar) and Ellen Petersson (horns/electronics) had been writing music together for many years before being introduced to Liam Amner (drums), whom they met through a mutual friend in 2013; they meshed so well that Amner was asked to join them in the studio. Now a trio, they named themselves after an aerobics exercise they were taught while queuing for a show by the Knife; they also decided to remove ego from the equation by having no member more prominent than the other, preferring to let the music take center-stage. By 2015 they had released their debut album, Every Other, via Adrian Recordings. Their fan base increased significantly, leading to festival slots and a European tour. By the time they began writing their second full-length, the trio were incorporating more electronic influences into the mix, the results of which were heard on their 2018 album, C0C0C0.
