Pop music: an expression of the current consciousness of whatís happening. An onomatopoetic description for sure, a boom, a bang that jolts and shakes things around, it can shift and change into many forms, its chameleon nature becomes seductive. Phil Spector called the stuff he did "little symphonies", encapsulated stories about life that has just as much resonance as the high brow classical form he borrowed from. Pop music is the sound of the actual, all the little details of how we live our lives, the soundtrack to our reality.
Elemeno P make pop music that bangs, guitar power pop with big choruses that is an invitation to a party next to a pool with lots of girlies, where the summer is endless and school or work is but a distant memory. Choice.
Dave Gibson (vocalist/songwriter) describes the band as "Weíre just happy people" and Dave is indeed a person full of the jollification that life can bring. But donít let that cloud your perspective, he has a solid background in musical performance. Playing in a variety of acts: Queen City Big Band, hardcore band Nickel and in 1998 toured Eastern Europe in a band called Elephant, where he broke his back, the fun has to stop sometimes. Heís also somewhat of a of a media veteran, having appeared in numerous commercials and featuring in the film 'The Locals' and also a stint as a radio DJ. Surprisingly finding time to complete a commerce degree, heís a man who knows what to do and how to do it.
