Album Spotlight: Ernest Ellis - Cold Desire

While many of KRCX’s Album Spotlights are from more popular groups, every now and then we find a diamond in the rough. This week’s Spotlight is “Cold Desire” by Ernest Ellis. Ernest Ellis is a 6-piece band from Australia that mixes many of the sounds found in the current day indie scene and blends them together. To put it in the words of another KRCX worker, “It looks like they have a lot of emotions.” And without a doubt, they do. This relaxed album will capture you without forcing you in, relying on their smooth grooves and distinct melodies to hook listeners. With sounds reminiscent of The National, Bon Iver, and James Blake, there is something in “Cold Desire” for all fans of college rock.
