The Ivory Elephant - Like a Dog

The Ivory Elephant - Like a Dog
Scraping out of the grit of Brunswick, Melbourne, The Ivory Elephant are a 3-piece playing Heavy Blues. Joining the Blues/Rock renaissance of bands such as The Black Keys and The White Stripes, and with a sound often likened to Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, The Ivory Elephant bring their own thing to the style.

Recorded on a shoestring budget, like so many of their predecessors, and independently released at the start of 2013, the band’s debut, self-titled EP makes for a musical stomp-in-the-mud footprint. From protest song opener Election Blues, through to the heavy grit of Taxi Driver, to swamp-ballad Like a Dog and down-home sing-a-long Here to Stay, the EP has defined the breadth of The Ivory Elephant’s sound.

As well as playing regular shows around Melbourne, a highlight of 2012 was winning the Victorian final of the National University Campus Bands Competition. Competing with around 100 other Victorian bands, The Ivory Elephant took part in 3 heats to take out the state final. As state champions, the band were flown to Adelaide to represent Victoria in the National Final. The competition was judged by panels of industry experts on musicianship, originality, stagecraft and recording viability.

About this track...

Like a Dog is a swampy-bluesy ballad. Although more subtle than some of the bands other work, this track has been one of the most popular with listeners due to it's unique guitar riff and tone. Watch out for the freakout guitar solo in the middle!
