Tallaght/City Centre, County Dublin
Elastic Affair are an unsigned band from Dublin formed in early 2008 under the name "Howl". Since their arrival on the underground scene they have strived to create an experimental yet accessible sound.
"Today, our homegrown musical landscape showcases a richly diverse eclecticism. Into the modern breach of inspiration step Howl, a Dublin based four-piece crafting a bewitching stew of epic, tantalizing compositions." - Connected Magazine - April '09 --
"Their music, like all good music, is hard to define. It sweeps from smoky blues to anthemic chamber pop and back home to a purple and red tinted after-hours jazz club. The songs are longer than normal – 6 or 7 minutes - but some well placed breakdowns and build-ups keep them interesting like some musical Bayeaux tapestry." - Darko Guerilla review - May '09.
"Their set was almost blended into a full string of music- like a score that changes; rises and falls, with speed and grace, while strung together with very thought-out, intelligent song structures." - Heinekenmusic.ie - March '10
