The Central Coast punches above its weight when it comes to music. In recent years we’ve seen Coasties like Ellie Drennan and Fletcher Pilon take out national talent competitions, but the Coast has also been the breeding ground for acts like Pepa Knight, Something With Numbers, and Winterbourne. The Coast is also home to Elliot the Bull, an unassuming indie-rock quartet that has consistently delivered quality tunes over the years. The latest is “Beast,” the title track from the band’s forthcoming EP.
I love this song’s passion. Jake Dobson’s vocals are endearingly raw and the guitars and rhythm section are beautifully layered. It’s emotive and honest, another solid cut from this talented act.
Elliot the Bull will travel around the country next month. The tour almost didn’t happen after the band’s home studio was robbed and thousands of dollars of equipment stolen recently. While crowdfunding has helped them replace most of what was taken, these guys could probably use your support right now!
