Irish act The Elation have announced the next single from their much awaited EP due out on June 1st.
Catch, produced and recorded with multi-platinum selling London producer Andy Whitmore, reflects the bands classic pop sensibilities. With the bands signature floor filling blend of funk guitar, rock steady drum beats and electrifying synth hits, Catch is three minutes of pure pop pleasure. Lyrically, the bands vocalist (Chris Cansdale) and guitarist (Billy Whelan) co wrote the idea for’ Catch’. Billy had the idea for the verses and chorus and Chris took the pre chorus’. The Co Writers took different approaches to the relationship song and merged them together.
The EP Clickbait features 5 songs including the single XO which received lots of airplay and great reviews. The EP is available to preoreder now on CD and Downloads from www.top6.ie/theelation.

“It’s funky! It’s dancy! It’s poppy! It’s fast! Pulsating and rhythmic, “XO” might be the name of the tune but the band’s title might more accurately portray the overall tone of this single. Polished and peppy with just enough of a touch of indie rock to feel familiar” – A Journal of Musical Things
