Groups named in parody after iconic musicians and artists are not limited to Chet Faker (a take on the late jazz giant Chet Baker), much like North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains are not limited to excellent wine and providing wanderlust and reverie to those presiding throughout the range. The outfit elvis depressedly bucks both of these trends, and are eager to announce the release date of their impending LP holo pleasures / california dreamin’, due out June 3rd. The release in focus serves not only as a reissue of their 2013 EP holo pleasures, but also an accompaniment to entirely new material, released under the title california dreamin’. The affectionately named elvis depressedly is now streaming their track “Slip.” The track serves as both an anthemic and prominent reminder of the band’s predilection for mentally-focused, even ethereal melodies as well as assured lyricism.
“Slip” can be streamed below.
2013’s holo pleasures has enjoyed significant laudation and influence from the DIY scene, which the group has used to expand upon and develop their sound in a more noise-pop sense with 2015’s comprehensive effort New Alhambra.
After significant interest, the group will tour throughout the UK this coming June, with a list of confirmed dates provided below.

June 8 – London @ Moth Club
