Description
They have been described as 'One of Britain's best bands' (The Times),
as 'Heart-crushingly beautiful' (Sunday Times),
'at the top of their game' Uncut,
and 'quite simply one of the greatest, most consistent songwriters this fair isle's ever produced' NME
And 'a band whose consistency has seldom been matched by any British indie band this decade' NME
and this from WORD MAG, "Comparisons to Radiohead and Coldplay made sense but flattered both bands".

They simply are one of the greatest and most critically & universally acclaimed bands to come out of the UK in the last 10 years, full stop. Their fourth LP The Seldom Seen Kid entered the UK charts at No.5 and was met with universal praise and now the Mercury Prize winners Elbow are back with a brand new album - 'Build A Rocket Boys'.

This is the group's 5th release and the follow up to the million selling 'The Seldom Seen Kid'. The new album finds them self-producing for the second time, with keyboard player Craig Potter taking both producing and mixing duties at Blueprint Studios in Salford. Fortunately nothing gets missed in the process. Their sound, from moody piano-driven ballads, up to full band rockers, retains the immediacy and weight of British rock, but always with either a slightly cheeky or sinister edge. And the rich, unique vocals of Guy Garvey see to it that no one can accuse them of having anything but their own distinct sound.
