Elephant Stone, the project led by Montreal's Rishi Dhir, will release their previously discussed self-titled LP on February 5 via HIdden Pony, and they just made a kaleidoscopic video for their droning psych pop single, "Heavy Moon." You can check out that video for the first time at the bottom of this post.
As mentioned, Elephant Stone will be going on a tour soon which brings them to NYC on December 5 at Mercury Lounge with Zula (tickets) and December 6 at Union Pool with Isadora (formerly The Yes Way) (tickets).
In addition to his own band, Dhir has lent his sitar skills to The Soundtrack of Our Lives, The High Dials and The Black Angels (with whom he has also played bass) to name few. Both Elephant Stone and The Black Angels are part of the initial Austin Psych Fest lineup, which also includes Deerhunter, Boris, Wairpaint, DIIV, and others.
An updated list of Elephant Stone dates and that video are below.
