Meet Elm, four queers who love all things pop. The Irish band matches vocal androgyny with unforgettable cello lines, creating a unique sense of originality within the constraints of the pop realm. With a presence that bewitches, Elm embodies the sound of a new un-uniformed generation to express themselves in their own stunning way. Elm have had major success far beyond the Irish seas, making waves across the globe through radio (BBC, KCRW, RTE 2fm), festivals (Canadian Music Week, Liverpool Sound City, Electric Picnic) and press (Forbes, The Irish Times, Broadsheet).
