Formed in London in the winter of 2007 by Neil Branquinho.
Neil is responsible for all the writing and recording of ELBL music and is joined for live performances by members of the Eat lights collective, a constantly shifting tableau of gifted musicians.
ELBL have a deep love of classic German electronic acts of the 1970s, evoking classic kosmische bands, Neu!, Kraftwerk and Can but making the sound very much their own, creating an ever-changing synaesthetic landscape of harmony and melody, feedback & drones, played against a driving motorik beat.
Gigging heavily since their conception, ELBL have steadily built up a reputation as a formidable live act, and the band have played numerous high-profile shows, including a sold-out tour with New York electronic pioneers Silver Apples, headlining the Liverpool International Psych-Fest as well as being championed by Stuart Maconie on 6 Music’s Freak Zone. The late, great music legend Andy Weatherall (Primal Scream, Sabres of Paradise) was big fan of the band, dj-ing at a number of their record launches.
The band continue to record and are currently in the studio working on their 6th studio LP for release sometime in 2020.
