Hey Elbow made their name with their debut album Every Other, which was packed with sweeping, epic art-pop that made its way into a lot of people’s end-of-year lists in 2015. It also sent the band on tour around Europe and the US, which meant that it has taken Julia Ringdahl, Ellen Petersson and Liam Amner a while to get around to writing a follow-up. But in October last year they returned with Quest, a new single that showed a clear development in their sound, and in spring they released their new album C0C0C0, a record that keeps and updates their artistic vision. They play Kulturfestivalen in August.
