The most remarkable achievement of Being Elastic is not that a Halifax-bred band scored an American record deal. The big win here is that Each Other has mastered turbulent pop as an art form. These guys have been at it for years, and they have grown from 100-riffs-per-song to a place where they have total control over composition. Pair that with eerie harmonies, superb guitar playing, analogue production and that’s a bingo. If this record doesn’t make the Polaris Prize long list, I will eat a pair of skinny jeans.
