Hey Elbow: Ruth + Martin

The eleven-track debut full-length 'Every Other' by Swedish trio Hey Elbow dropped last month. So far they have nine European shows scheduled including a June 30 performance at the Roskilde Festival. (NOTE: the full gig list was announced on April 30 on Facebook.)

The two videos accompanying the stellar tracks "Ruth" and "Martin" compliment the playful sound masterfully created by members Julia Ringdal (vocals/guitar), Ellen Petersson (horns/electronics) and Liam Amner (drums) in their mad scientist lab in their hometown of Malmö.

"Ruth" was directed by Freja Andersson; "Martin" by Elvira Varghans and Maja Li Härdelin.
