About The Elwins:

Ontario-based indie pop outfit The Elwins have garnered an impressive pile of attention and praise considering their relative youth. From performing alongside acts like Tokyo Police Club, Arkells and Sweet Thing or at festivals including SXSW, CMW, POP Montreal, and the Halifax Pop Explosion to being heralded an “act to watch” by tastemakers like Exclaim!, CBC Radio 3, and, The Elwins have rapidly risen the rungs of the Canadian independent music scene. The band was born in 2007 when vocalist/guitarist Matthew Sweeney and drummer Travis Stokl bonded in a high-school hallway over their mutual love of The Flaming Lips. The two began writing songs together under the new banner and shortly thereafter welcomed longtime friend Feurd Moore to the fold to handle keyboard and guitar duties. Midway through 2011, bassist Christopher Shannon signed on to cement the band’s current lineup, and since, they’ve seen their audience and, subsequently, the excitement surrounding their debut LP, And I Thank You, expand exponentially.
