Lucky Elephant – ‘Starsign Trampoline’ – Album Review

Elephants can bring to mind two symbols and schools of thought. Nelly’s allegorical journey was one of emancipation if examined deeper than its childlike semblance; whereas the Republican Party’s crest alludes to the opinion of a retarded white guy reluctant of change. Fortunately, Lucky Elephant travels a path not too dissimilar to our fabled friend, antithetical and far distant to our once moronic political alias. ‘Starsign Trampoline’ is a celestial debut of virginal quality, brooding with artistic integrity and creativity. From the resplendent lo-fi shoegaze of The Bees-esque ‘Edgar’, to the alluring lyrical sentiment that undulates for the piano-led ‘Red Ties Vs The Bees’ and ‘Neptune’, Lucky Elephant rouse the listener with organic and visceral builds that transcend darkness to a euphonious light at the end of a tunnel. Simply sublime. 8/10
