Artist discography


Over the course of six years, Elevator Division have unashamedly embraced 1980?s guitar-inspired new-wavers like U2, The Cure, and Big Country, putting them in the ironic position of sounding "fresh" as the sun settles on "Modern Rock."
By sharing the bill with such bands and artists as Glen Philips (of Toad The Wet Sprocket), Pete Yorn, Elbow, The Faint, Denali, Pedro The Lion, Shiner, Cursive, La Guardia, Secret Machines, and many others, Elevator Division have managed to share their unique musical vision with a broad audience.
Passionate like Jeff Buckley, with chiming, bouncing guitars and bass hooks borrowed from The Dream Syndicate, The Cure or even Coldplay, Elevator Division is suddenly positioned to be a fork in the evolutionary road of the sounds and aesthetics associated with alternative rock and roll.
To punctuate their deviation, Elevator Division stepped away from the emo-factories and noise-labs of prominent Kansas City-area studios and producers, and found themselves choosing to record with Larry Gann, known for his work with Grammy Award winners Elton John, Oleta Adams, and Natalie Merchant.
After 7 years of making music as Elevator Division ,they have decided to call it quits.
They have not decided to stop making music altogether, only to stop making music as the entity Elevator Division. The spirit of Eldiv will live on through various other projects.
Comments:It?s a shame that this band has split up but hopefully we get to hear more from these bandmembers in other future projects coz this is a really great atmospheric pop album with a touch of alternative rock.
