El Ten Eleven_for emily_cover

El Ten Eleven has a new three-song EP out, called For emily, and are touring in support. Full dates below.

The band, which prefers to be called a “Power Duo” instead of any of the more descriptive labels you might want to use (like instrumental rock, post-rock, or math rock), put out the For emily EP as a tribute to a friend of theirs who passed away last year (the “e” in emily is lower case on purpose because that’s how she spelled it). While all the hallmarks of the band’s sound are here, there is an attention to texture and emotion brought to bear on these three songs that is perhaps fitting given what it’s all about. Listen to it right here:

El Ten Eleven is swinging through The New Parish in Oakland for Noise Pop on February 28 along with fellow LA duo Mattson 2 and Oakland space disco heroes Pale Blue Dot.
