Premiere: Listen to Arch Nemesis, the thumping new single from ELKO FIELDS

Taken from a forthcoming EP, recorded with Grammy-winning producer Nick Didia.

Crazy to think it's been a couple of years since we first posted about Brissy-based rock'n'roll outfit ELKO FIELDS, fronted by guitarist/vocalist Kella Vee. In the time since ELKO FIELDS saw The Medics' drummer Jhindu-Pedro Lawrie link up with Vee, and thus a powerful combination was born, and excellent rock music is the end result.

Their latest single, Arch Nemesis, is no differnet - thumping drums, tough-as-nails vocals and blues-infused riffs combine for another cracker, one which by the sounds of things came together quite nicely: "I remember walking into the studio space for the first time and having the overwhelming sensation to let go and let the room take over. Arch Nemesis naturally fell into the studio as the first track we were eager to sink our teeth into for the EP. Partly because I wanted to let loose, partly because we had a vision to capture the live essence and energy of this song which we had performed on a handful of occasions recently. I wanted to feel like stepping into the studio and plugging in for the first track was like walking on stage with Arch Nemesis the opener. And so we did, I think."

The EP which Vee speaks is one they've been polishing off with Grammy Award winner producer Nick Didia (Rage Against The Machine, Pearl Jam, Powderfinger), and we can't wait to hear what else comes from it.
