Ellevator is a band from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Raised on the cool precision of late-aughts guitar music and the melodrama of post-rock, they hold lean hooks and sweeping crescendos in perfect tension. Frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche wields her arresting lyricism with clear-eyed lucidity, drawing deeply personal reflections from big themes like power, love, and loss. Citing influences that range from stadium limelight (Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush) to the warm glow of indie haunts (Feist, Spoon, Death Cab
For Cutie) Ellevator’s music hits with the impact of great pop songs and the fierce emotional resonance of their rock and roll heroes.
Following the release of their eponymous debut EP in 2018, Ellevator cut their teeth on the road, sharing stages with the likes of Amber Run, Banners, Our Lady Peace, Now Now, Arkells, Bishop Briggs, Cold War Kids, and Dear Rouge. Earlier this year, the band released their first LP ‘The Words You Spoke Still Move Me’. Produced by indie-rock luminary Chris Walla—former guitarist and founding member of
Death Cab for Cutie—the album inhabits an emotional landscape that is both breathtakingly intimate and impossibly vast, documenting various experiences to turn universal (existential longing, romantic power struggles, the neverending work of true self-discovery) and highly specific (e.g., frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche’s journey in extracting herself from a cult) storytelling into a truly hypnotic body of work, giving rise to the kind of radiant open-heartedness that radically transforms our own perspective.
