About El Ten Eleven

El Ten Eleven are an instrumental post-rock duo originating from Los Angeles and consisting of bassist/guitarist Kristian Dunn and drummer Tim Fogarty. Dunn plays fretless bass or a double-neck bass/guitar combo and Fogarty alternates between acoustic and electronic drum kits, and they utilize looping stations and effects pedals rather than preprogrammed rhythms, ensuring that their live performances require a considerable amount of stamina. El Ten Eleven are notable for creating inventive, complex music with limited instrumentation, and their chiming, heartfelt melodies combined with upbeat rhythms result in songs that are touching yet energetic, even danceable. Their music often has a bittersweet tone, and several of their songs are named for departed friends or family members. The duo have seemingly toured nonstop since the release of their self-titled debut in 2004, with subsequent albums including 2008's dance-leaning These Promises Are Being Videotaped and 2023's somber Valley of Fire.
