Elephant Stone is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Rishi Dhir, a founding member of Montreal pop/psyche veterans the High Dials, and sitar player for basically every outlaw psyche band out there (Black Angels, the Earlies, Hopewell, Brian Jonestown Massacre).
In 2009, Elephant Stone released their debut album, The Seven Seas. Melding Rishi’s obsession with the perfect pop song and the trippiest raga, The Seven Seas, was warmly embraced by the global indie-scene and long-listed for the coveted 2009 Polaris Music Prize. Last year saw the release of The Glass Box EP, a five-song suite of inspired power-pop/psyche classics, plus a supporting slot on the Brian Jonestown Massacre’s North American tour, and an inaugural tour of Europe with sold-out dates in London and Berlin.
‘The Seven Seas coolly captures Dhir’s love of both classic British pop and Indian raga subcurrents while brimming with messages of peace, hope and love’.
