Elba Lane are a Brisbane three-piece rock band belatedly emerging from a 90s alternative music soup. They are influenced by bands such as Smashing Pumpkins, Placebo, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Hole, Garbage and Radiohead just to name a few.
The music provides a throwback sound to guitar infused rock melodies with crashing cymbals, fuzzy solos and introspective lyrics combining in a unique alt-rock twist.
A largely DIY recording at By the Living Grace Studios Brisbane, the Elbas released their debut album 'Arctic' in May 2017 through independent label Near Enough Records.
