Formed by the belief that true friends can create something meaningful, Olly Hite and Samuel Carter-Brazier united to grace audiences with their poignant lyricism and neo-nostalgic melodies with the unique band, Percival Elliot. Named after Hite’s great-grandfather, Percival Elliott, born in 1883 was an inventor who created one of the first ice-cream emporiums in Brighton. After discovering a dusty box of trinkets in the back of Hite’s family attic, the untouched time capsule unveiled Elliott’s mysterious inventions, engraved ice-cream paraphernalia, haunting photographs and time-honored war medals. The imagination began to whirl and creativity sparked, thus the band and musical exploration of Percival Elliot was born.
Percival Elliot has gained recognition in the U.K, gaining momentum with tours and captivating listeners at sold-out shows across England. The newest track from the duo is entitled “Forever”, which comes from the upcoming album Save Your Soul. “Forever” plays with the emotions of eternal love, as Hite clarifies that it is a unique feeling of meeting someone that gave the band inspiration stating that, “Sparks and butterflies, even if it’s just for a second, that feeling can last forever”.
For listeners of melodic pianos and influences of The Beatles to Jeff Buckley, Percival Elliot makes their listeners “feel alive” with their music and want to create a unique atmosphere surrounding their songs.
Save Your Soul is due out later in 2018 and further updates can be found online |HERE|.
“Forever” is also paired with a cinematic music video, which can be viewed below the jump.
