elbé is the brainchild of singer-songwriter Seamus Allen and the perfect vehicle for his indie songs that are blended with folk, traditional music and pop elements.
Nora Frederich's intuitive, groove-based drumming and Kieran Fitzgerald’s melodic and nifty bass lines gives the band their own sound and identity.
Songwriter Seamus Allen takes inspiration from real life experiences and day-to-day events he witnesses in his life. In an attempt to make these relatable and give meaning to the listener, he describes events in a metaphorical and poetic way.
Elbé released their debut EP “Contours” in May 2019. Since then the band has played gigs around Ireland and worked with local producer and engineer Christian Best (Mick Flannery and O Emperor). The first release of this collaboration was released in October 2020 and gained attraction from BBC Introducing, FM104, RedFM and 98FM.
The next single “These Moments” will be released on the 18th of December 2020.
