Montreal indie pop group, What If Elephants, strikes a delicate balance with their elegant and rousing sound – between accessible pop and deeper, introspective lyrics that lie just below the surface. The four friends put a positive perspective on adversity and find inspiration in the impact music can have on people. Four times semifinalists in CBC Searchlight, winners in Canada’s Walk of Fame RBC Emerging Musician Program 2018, and featured both on Canada Destinations and Parcs Canada for promotional campaigns, they’ve resonated with fans across the country. They’ve recently performed with fellow Canadian acts such as Milk & Bone, The Royal Foundry, Port Cities, and Birds of Bellwoods, on tour at summer festivals and showcases such Canadian Music Week, POP Montreal and Festival Artefact – and tag on Beau’s Oktoberfest with opening for Neon Dreams.
Following the pre-pandemic release of their single, “ETA”, they’ve worked in collaboration with producers, Tokyo Speirs (Walk Off The Earth), and rising hit maker, Lucas Liberatore (Corneille, Roch Voisine) to deliver their lolly-pop sweet and emotionally evocative sophomore EP, Relationship Status. The EP showcases their hometown co-emerging artists; Bayla, Maya Malkin, Flara K, as well as Swedish pop force, Namelle – promising a series of insta-catchy, 80s sprinkled treats for hungry fans.
