Elephant Stone Drops Ecclectic New “Back Into the Dream” LP, North American Tour Starting In March With Support From Evolfo

Every time we go on a journey with these artists, we never know where we are going to end up…and that is the best feeling. On our latest visit up North we are checking out Back Into the Dream, the latest major drop from Elephant Stone. Based out of Montreal, this modern psy-rock band was created by musician Rishi Dhir as a different creative outlet. After performing with bands such as The Datsons and The High Dials, Dhir discovered his love for the sitar and telling his personal experiences, thus giving birth to Elephant Stone. Dhir quickly made a name for himself as a renowned sitar player, collaborating with the likes of Beck, and legendary cult bands like The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Black Angels, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, The Dream Syndicate, and many more. Elephant Stone has been active since releasing their first album in 2009, and with their new EP on the horizon, fans of psych-rock need to take notice.

Elephant Stone has crafted a musical odyssey over 14 years that delves into the realms of dreams and consciousness. Their latest album, “Back Into the Dream,” represents the pinnacle of this journey, offering listeners an immersive passage through introspection and wonder. Spearheaded by Rishi Dhir, the band’s driving force, the album explores themes of identity and escapism, inviting listeners to transcend the mundane and delve into profound self-exploration through tracks like “The Spark” and “Going Underground.” With a fusion of sitar vibes and free jazz elements, Elephant Stone’s musical palette, complemented by the talents of Miles Dupire, Jason Kent, and Robbie MacArthur, ensures each composition stands as a testament to their evolution and commitment to pushing musical boundaries. “Back Into the Dream” serves as a thematic exploration of the enigmatic nature of dreams, bridging the gap between waking and dreaming states and inviting listeners on a journey where the boundaries between reality and imagination blur effortlessly.
