Elroy makes music that is dreamy, luscious and a little melancholic. It evokes relaxation, red wine and cheese at dusk, and the weightless feeling one experiences just before you drift off to sleep. With a production aesthetic reminiscent of Grizzly Bear and Elliott Smith, you could find Elroy’s music embodying the spirit of a playlist designed for, ‘Chilling.’
Elroy has spent most of the past 10 years playing in bands such as Wild Nothing, Connan Mockasin, Liam Finn, Neil Finn and Lawrence Arabia. In between these projects, he has slowly crafted his debut album in various bedrooms and studios between Brooklyn NY, and Auckland NZ.
Elroy’s self-titled debut album was written, recorded, produced and mixed himself, and will be released May 31st 2019 .
The first single ‘Worth The Wait’ was released in late 2017 and has been a well-received and slow burning offering.
The new single ‘Excite Me Much’ will be released on May 17th along with a video.
Elroy is currently recording his second solo album, as well as pursuing other musical ventures such as Pablo Vasquez, his collaborative instrumental classical styled guitar project with Jolyon Mulholland
Elroy will perform a free entry/ KOHA based album release show at Neck of the Woods, K Rd on 29th May 2019 with a 6 piece band (featuring Jolyon Mulholland, Justyn Pilbrow, Jimmy Metherell, EJ Barnes and Daniel Ward)
