In The Element emerge from the Tropical North with diverse experiences to create a lush indie/reggae/soul fusion.

Based in Cairns far north Queensland, this culturally diverse band draw from their combined heritage to create a melting pot of new music that crosses genres and styles.
The players punch out big rock riffs, sweet harmonies, 'popping' grooves, with dashes of electronica and soul to create a unique authentic sound.

The band members include brothers James Stewart (Vocals/Keys) & Neil Stewart (guitar/Vocals), Tristan Barton (drums) with fellow members Broden Tyrrell (Vocals/Guitar) and younger brother 14 year-old funk prodigy Warrigo Tyrrell (bass/Vocal).

In The Element write heart-felt lyrics that draw from diverse personal experiences, and inform pop laden tracks that swing between light and dark. From ambient breakdowns to sweeping synths, big hitting guitar riffs to lush harmonies, In The Element take punters on a very unique musical journey.

While fresh out the gate, having formed early in 2014, In The Element have played various Far Northern festivals and venues, including Wallaby Creek Festival, Yungaburra Folk Festival, Tanks Art Centre, On Edge Festival, Arthouse, Airlie Beach Music Festival, Kuranda Amphitheatre and many others.

Live the band present a high energy, stomping floor set, with natural energy, a great sense of family, hands in the air stage presence, and wicked pop hooks that has been dazzling audiences all over the far north.
