Dundalk based singer songwriter Shane Clarke records under the name Elephant, and below is his latest single ‘Little Ghost’. It’s a meandering guitar song with an assortment of other instruments and whispered vocals. It’s also quiet lovely. Enjoy it below! His debut album ‘HyperGiant’ will be released soon.
Elephant, the musical vehicle of Dundalk based multi-instrumentalist Shane Clarke, offers an intriguing live show of intimate acoustic guitars and subtly looped layers tied with colourful melody and enchanting harmonies.
Songs wander from an instantaneous summery folk pop reminiscent of Badly Drawn Boy and Elliot Smith, to more mature meandering pieces with a deliberate deconstructed nature, akin to say… Broken Social Scene, Justin Vernon or Joanna Newsom. Elephant has rightly garnered much praise on the live front of late with his earnest vocal delivery and unique lyrical style capturing audiences and securing him 2014 performances with Martha Wainwright and on the Other Voices trail in Dingle.
Ahead of the highly anticipated release of Elephant’s debut album “HyperGiant”, Shane will be busy touring across the nation offering us a taste of what’s to come as he enters this exciting chapter.
