The new album from British rockers elbow – The Take Off And Landing Of Everything – touches down next Tuesday, March 11th. Since 1992, the band – including Guy Garvey on vocals, guitarist Mark Potter, bassist Pete Turner, Craig Potter on keyboards, and drummer Richard Jupp – have made consistently creative, sweepingly cinematic, moody and challenging music.
Writing for NPR Music’s Heavy Rotation about the song, Carmel Holt says:
Hundreds of songs have been written about New York City, and yet it’s impossible to tire of new songs about it, especially one with a chorus that so perfectly sums up the city’s simultaneous noise, brilliance, heartbreak and promise. Elbow frontman Guy Garvey delivers the song’s sad-yet-hopeful perspective, informed by his recent time living in Brooklyn and inspired by the refuge John Lennon and Yoko Ono found in Manhattan.
