Elephant – Skyscraper

The London duo experienced a tumultuous year, breaking up as a couple and on the verge of splitting up as a band. So this heartfelt piece of airy pop hanged by a thread to see the light of day. The distinguishing melodic doo-wop style with a beautiful choir backing chorus, makes “Skyscraper” a dreamy experience with exceptionally great taste in production and arrangement.  What’s even more impressive is the way the song manages to be rooted in the past and at the same time, sound tastefully current. We for one thinks it pretty fortunate that Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck managed to reconsolidate their differences, enough to continue with their beautiful musical explorations.
