Elliot’s Crazy Compass - Bubbles
Elliot’s Crazy Compass is a Helsinki-based alternative pop band formed in 2018. Elliot’s Crazy Compass’ music emerges from free improvisation with a strong visual sense. In its own way it’s soundtrack music, and the band collaborates with visual artists. ”We don’t want to restrict our musical expression to any particular genre. That’s why we let the Compass spin freely and point in surprising directions. Playfulness guarantees us the freedom to create. If it feels good, it is good.”
Their 2021 album Bubbles (produced by Tomás Doncker) offers eight shamelessly playful tracks that slip from rock to hip hop and slide from electro to soul. The lyrics offer escapism, die zeitgeist, yearning and, of course, gum.
