What I'm Listening To with... Elliott Jones

Local alt-rocker Elliott Jones has just released his new single 'Moment of Madness'

The solo project 'came from a persistant urge to push myself creatively in 2020 after my previous band dispersed.' says Elliott

We caught up with him recently and chatted all things music!

What was the last song you listened to?

Figure 8 by Paramore. I think i’ve listened to their new album 100000 times.

Do you listen to your own songs when you’re driving or working out?

I listen to demos in the gym, but mainly DNB to get pumped up

You’re in a club or venue and one of your tracks comes on what do you do?

I critique the mix (I mix my own songs so it’s good to hear them out of different speakers) and sneakily celebrate without anyone noticing

What were you listening to when you were 13?

Mainly Foo Fighters, Sum 41, Greenday, Linkin Park etc.. and I still remember all the words.

What are you listening to at the moment that we should check out?

Ooo Wunderhorse, These New South Whales, Bad Nerves, Tigercub, Dead Poet Society, Palace, Half Moon Run ..

What one song instantly makes you smile when you hear it?

Foals - Olympic Airways. That’s when summer officially starts for me.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Macklemore - No Bad Days. My wife says i’m his biggest fan, but that tune is super catchy and the video is sweet.

What album do you always listen to all the way through?

Foals - Holy Fire. Unbelievable album.

What track would you like to cover?

White Lies - I don’t wanna go to Mars. It’s one of the biggest rock songs in years and I bet it would be hench to play live.

What track do you wish you had written?

Palace - Heaven Up There. It’s the most beautiful ever written.
