about

"Beverly" is the new and incredible release of our idols from Austin. Recorded in the same sessions as their previous release with Eric Wofford in Cacophony Studios, these new tracks will be put out in the typical 50’s and 60’s format: on a vinyl single of four songs, a format that Elefant has always adored and vindicated. "Beverly" is the perfect teenage hymn, with the “pa-ra-pa-pa-pas” being one of the most addictive lines in ages and it also could be the perfect song to dance to on prom night. It’s probably the sharpest and most refined of their songs released to date, with some parts sounding like THE SUPREMES and LUCKY SOUL. "Kissing and Telling" starts out sounding like THE EARLY BROTHERS coming back to give us the gift of their best song ever, but all of a sudden, GIRLFRENDO rings out in the horizon, with their energetic, young and vibrant outbursts. "I Tried to Call You" (a cover of their friend’s band from Austin, BASIC LO-FI) sounds like THE WOULD-BE-GOODS acting out a detective story directed by Al Pacino, while "Gloria" goes hand in hand with BELLE & SEBASTIAN and THE ESSEX GREEN.

In conclusion, four songs which should put this band on the map as an example of the product of modernizing a traditional pop sound, basing it all on a hip, mega-vitamin project filled with ungraceful elegance and juvenile imagination. Not very complicated but a lot of song. Some call it inspiration.

Track Name: Beverly
Beverly stay away from me
You break my heart every time you leave

Remember last Sunday you were gonna call me?
Never did hear the phone
Next time I see you
You’re out dancing and you wanna take me home
But remember that last time I saw you
You really did make me cry
You were standing with all your friends and
You wouldn’t even poke me in the eye

Beverly stay away from me
You break my heart every time you leave

Every time you talk to me
I can’t think and I can’t breathe

Beverly stay away from me
You break my heart every time you leave
You can’t take me home
You can’t call my phone
I’d rather be alone
Reading crappy poems

Beverly stay away from me
You break my heart every time you leave

Bah bah dah buh duh bah bah duhp buhp buhp
Track Name: Kissing And Telling
Kissing and telling just ain't right
I heard you making fun of me the other night
It's very easy I could find another boy
Instead of one who treats me as his toy

If that's the way it has to be
A teddy bear should take the place of me
I don't need this
I don't need you
I don't need all the silly childish things you do

Ooh Ooh
You just keep me hanging around
Baby I'm tired
You just keep me hanging around
And I'm so cold

Oooohhhhhhhh
I'm walking all alone
Oooohhhhhhhh
I'm setting you free
Oooohhhhhhhh
You'll do fine without me
Oooohhhhhhhh

I saw you hangin' with your friends the other day
I passed you by, you didn't look my way
But that's alright
I'll be okay
We're better parted anyway

Ooh Ooh
You just keep me hanging around
Baby I'm tired
You just keep me hanging around
And I'm so cold

You just keep me hanging around
You just keep me hanging around
You just keep me hanging around
You just keep me hanging around
You just keep me hanging around
You just keep me hanging around
Track Name: I Tried To Call You
I tried to call you
Long since I saw you
I feel so hollow
Inside it's awful

One lonely signal, oh
I tried to call you, oh

Last night I saw you
Outside your window
I tried to call you
But I couldn't see in though

A sad expression, oh
I tried to call you, oh

I thought we had a good thing, whew
I want to feel better, whew
I thought we had a good thing, whew
So I tried and I tried and I tried

I've been driven down to Sugarland baby (Sugarland baby)
I've been waiting for you all the time (all the time)
Waiting for the day you to be mine

I'll try on Sunday
Til I feel better
Being nice is one thing
But now there's no reason

I thought you loved me, oh
I tried to call you, oh
Track Name: Gloria
All of my charms, all of my brains
They ain't enough to keep him from Gloria
All of my charms, all of my brains
They Ain't enough to keep him from Gloria

I'd Like to think I'm enough
But I didn't study in France
She's a step ahead, I'm a step behind
Now she's walking with him
He said he never met a girl like Gloria
She speaks fluently the language of love
Whatever the hell that means

I'd like to think I'm enough
I don't call what they have love
Who knows what evil spell
She has cast on him
I'd like to think
Oh I'm such a fool
I'm enough
I'm not enough
But I
I just can't prove my love

Ain't it a shame
I played a fool
I, I, I loved you
The chemistry set
That we shared don't mean a thing
A no a no no no no no no no
