Recorded and co-produced by Eskimo Joe legend Joel Quartermain (Meg Mac, Dustin Tebbutt, British India), the twelve-track record arrives on a wave of hype triggered by the success of five previously released singles – ‘Silver Ray’, ‘Agnosia’, ‘The Birds’, ‘Only Youth’ and fresh cut ‘Reach’.

Elephant Bones also represents the culmination of three years’ worth of relentless writing and touring from the triple j Unearthed alum, who’ll be hitting the road once again for a slew of national headlining album tour dates, which will see them hit stages in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

Our Review:  A triumphant debut full-length well worth the wait, Halcyon Drive’s Elephant Bones is a compelling cocktail of diverse sounds that will have you drifting in a dancefloor reverie. Soulful, richly textured brimming with infectious EDM-laced grooves, the disc’s power to captivate doesn’t let up across its twelve-track duration. A true pop masterpiece that bursts out of its indie niche.
