Artist discography


Atlanta based Elevation gives the listener a huge dose of 80´s new wave on their new album "Hell or high water", it´s their 2nd album and follow up to the 2007 debut "Strangelove". If you´re into bands like Big Country, Echo and The Bunnymen and A Flock of Seagulls - you will be very pleased to hear Elevation´s delay layered guitar sound. The majority of the tracks are upbeat and really catchy, you could say they sound a bit like an Aussie band doing their version of British 80´s rock. The mighty fine "L-train" is a given hit in my ears, the opener "Death valley" should be perfect as a setlist starter at shows but what about the brilliant "Still alive"? This song deserve an award of any kind, the piano hooks of the verse lift this song so much.

Tracklisting 1. Death Valley
2. Borderline
3. L-Train
4. Still Alive
5. Sands of Time
6. Hardest Part
7. Hold Your Smile
8. Doxology
9. The Rhythm
10. Exit
