Elvis Depressedly, the wonderfully enigmatic project of prolific songwriter, Mathew Lee Cothran, has announced Depressedelica, a brand new full-length due out October 4th from Run For Cover Records.

Depressedelica marks the North Carolina based musician’s first new album as Elvis Depressedly in four long years, and it finds him writing and recording more adventurously than ever before, tipping its cap to artists as varied as Elliot Smith, Prefab Sprout, Cocteau Twins, and Pink Floyd, pushing sonic boundaries and blurring genre lines with gleeful abandon.

Check out the shimmering, off-kilter indie pop of Jane, Don’t You Know Me?


Elvis Depressedly is a duo holed up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. They will release the Holo Pleasures / California Dreamin’ LP on Run For Cover Records on 3rd June.

It is both a re-issue of their 2013 Holo Pleasures EP and a new EP of unreleased material on the B-side, California Dreamin’.

Slip is a wonderfully woozy slice of two minute psych-pop from the new EP.

Until recently, we were unaware of the lo-fi bedroom charms of Elvis Depressedly, that was until we heard the brilliant Bruises (Amethyst) (taken from forthcoming long player New Alhambra), which has become a firm fave here at MM Towers.

The duo have now released a beautiful new video for latest single, and album opener, Thou Shalt Not Murder. It showcases perfectly their brightly melancholic noise-pop inspired by heroes such as The Waterboys, Prefab Sprout and Emperor X, and in more conventional instances, Elliott Smith and Mac DeMarco.

Watch it here.
