New York-based synthpop band Elkland is gearing up to release their first single, “Apart,” on February 1 on Columbia Records. The single contains a cover of The Cranberries’ “Salvation” as a B-side, though we can probably expect something more electronic than punk.
Elkland count Joy Division, The Smiths, New Order, and Björk among their biggest influences. In fact, the band recently got praise from the UK’s Record of the Day, who said “….no one else has recalled New Order quite so recently or so enjoyably.”
You can listen to their debut single “Apart” from Elkland’s website, with a video to come soon. “Apart” comes from their forthcoming 12-track album “Golden.”
