El Ten Eleven Will Hook You In

You ever listen to a song and physically feel the hooks sinking into your body, reeling you in for another two, or three, or nine listens? There's a mental pause, some shivers and a proceeding raising of the volume. Sometimes it can be pinned down to a precise verse or chorus, but for me it often comes down to an entire track hitting a refreshing new sound. As is the case with El Ten Eleven and their new track "Peter and Jack," the new-age rock duo kept my finger eagerly on the replay button. While my love for double neck guitars is partially responsible here [Ed. Note: That introduction to the band's sound was thanks to the titular Peter Hook of New Order], the looping build, irresistible melody and stellar composure is what's really to blame. The Los Angeles group drew me in with their skilled instrumentation and kept me there by retaining a sublime simplicity throughout the track. It's an enticing combination of talented musicianship and a knowledge for how to build and release a track without bogging it down. It's a similar feeling to when I heard John Butler's 12 string performance of "Ocean" for the first time and that's a really, really good thing. You can receive "Peter and Jack" with a pre-order of their new Fast Forward album out August 21.
