On their full-length debut, "Sunlight Makes Me Paranoid", Elefant prove that not only are they worthy of carrying the musical torch first lit by stalwarts like Television and Talking Heads, but furthering it as well. Although there are plenty of post-punk-approved dissonance and jagged guitar stabs, guitarist Mod is masterful at tempering them with a sonic mean streak that the genre typically eschews. From the opening Make Up, the mock 80s tone is set with a bass (reminiscent of The Sound's Graham Bailey) and hi-hat riff and the opening line "You finally take your makeup off". Morrissey has finally been matched with the disassociated melancholy of Diego Garcia's vocal delivery; a delivery that is at once smooth and arresting. "Now That I Miss Her" revels in it's backbeat accented with both softer moments and one of the best guitar chord stabs in recent memory. Too many great catchy songs to mention here pass before the album finally rests on "Ester", a beautiful sentiment to a love lost. Over a lightly percussive chiming band, the narrative is so clear that the listener wishes they could meet this couple, especially the wonderful title character. Though rock references can be made to many 80s bands, New York New Wave acts, and even the greats of today comparisons to this band do not do anyone justice. Elefant is an original referencing the past but firmly putting their own impressive stamp on the rock sound with awesome songs, great guitars, solid backing and seductive vocals. Highly recommended.
