Back in the studio!!

Great to be back at Hunting Ground Studios! Two tracks done and dusted and super-keen to get back into a few more! Thanks to Luke Woollett for making it a breeze and squeezing all the parts in – can’t wait to hear the mixes!

The pick of this first batch will be our lead single – look out for it in late November. And who knows, maybe a special celebrity mixer will get on board – stranger things have happened! Stay tuned.

Road Trip!

Babies and world travel opportunities popped up in 2018 and, before we knew it, the year was gone!  The time was well-spent, though – we have a folder (well, a virtual folder…) full of songs for a new album and, as 2019 kicks off, we are starting to look for a producer to all us all into shape and make the magic happen!

After too long out of the live scene, we took a road trip down to Mt Burrell in February to play a lunchtime show at the Sphinx Rock Cafe. It was great – new tunes and old stuff all went over really well with the crowd and we’re already making plans for a return visit.  Have a look at a couple of clips from the day below.  These are both new tunes vying for a spot on the next album – Burnt and Story of Your Life.  Enjoy!

Old Roads (and Happy New Year!)

2018 is shaping up as a year of new directions for Elbury. We’re starting from a clean slate, following the release of Haunting Ground last May, and the options for new directions in songwriting seem absolutely endless, especially in the new five-piece format. To kick the year off right, with a nod to the past, we present the fourth (and final?) video from Haunting Ground – the nostalgic, late-album creeper, Old Roads.

Once again working with the talented lads at KWinc Productions, Old Roads was shot in one day on location in the Beerwah State Forest. Brooke’s acting chops landed her the starring role on virtually her second day in the band, and Brad Pizzey (Past Life Memories) joined us again – this time around he’s a creepy, knife-wielding hunter, stalking through the bush (so, playing himself ;-).  Enjoy!  See you at an Elbury show in 2018!


Squeezing six people into an uncomfortably medium-sized van, we hit the road for six whirlwind shows over 7 days in August 2017! From the Uni of Newcastle lunchtime BBQ to Canberra institution, Smith’s Alternative, we were blessed with fantastic support acts, attentive audiences, professional sound dudes and good weather! All over far too quickly – bring on the next tour! Shout-out to the University of Wollongong Student Music Society for putting on a show for us at the last minute – definitely a highlight!

It’s launched!!

And so… it is launched!  Our baby, our pride and joy, it’s out there in the world and has been sent off in style!

Huge thanks to everyone who came along on Saturday night and helped us celebrate the occasion!  We were blown away by the numbers and the good vibes and the well-wishers and everything!  Amazing support acts – check out Boatkeeper and Matt Hsu if you loved them as much as we did!

We’re heading into tour planning mode now – time to take this thing on the road!  Watch out for an August show in Brisbane and, if you’ve picked up a copy of Haunting Ground, be sure to let us know what you think!

If you missed out on a copy on Saturday night, head over to for a listen or a copy!

Like sirens at night…

Friday night, with the help of Music is My Muse (Brisbane), we released our second video from the new album – the pastoral-gothic, prog-folk slow burn, Like Sirens.

Patrick Delaney, who we last worked with on the video for 2014’s Caught Out Alone, took it up a notch this time around, with a multi-day, multi-location shoot, a massive bonfire and thousands of shots, intricately woven together.  The result, in the words of MIMM, are “mesmerising” and we hope you will enjoy it too!

Special thanks to the Velvet Kittens (VSassy, Raven Cherry, Indie Berlin and Miss Bunny Penny) and to Patrick Mulhare for the use of his land and the spectacular bonfire!  Also endless gratitude to Patrick Delaney for working with us on our most ambitious video project to date!

Second album track!

With the arrival of the CDs in the post yesterday, we decided it was time to share another track from the album! Introducing High Tide – current title-holder for being both the shortest and jauntiest track currently in the Elbury catalogue.

No video for this one, so we decided to pin our hopes on the JJJ Unearthed site and maybe drum up some extra listens from the crowd over there. You know how it goes – get the Kingsmill seal of approval, high rotation on drive time, join the Splendour bill, get fat stacks… I don’t know why we didn’t do this sooner!

Of course, none of these things will come to pass without listens, downloads and good reviews, so please head over to and check it out!

Big thanks…

And it’s live!!  Elbury’s first new tune in two years has arrived with great fanfare!  Big thanks to the alt-folk-lovin’ legends at Timber and Steel for premiering the video for us.  Check out the snippet here if you missed it last week, and head over to Timber and Steel on Facebook to give ’em a like.

Big thanks also to the ladies and gents working the airwaves on the community radio dial.  We started the ball rolling with an interview on 4ZZZ’s Goldilocks Folk, including a live in-studio performance of a brand new track.  Check out the podcast here, if you missed it (we’re on about the 90-minute mark).  Pic above is us bathing in the glory of a successful on-air performance and also the first group shot including Brooke, who has come on board to play some keys!

The boys at Emerge (Phoenix Radio) also picked up the single and gave it a spin for a couple of weeks.  Great one-hour new music show – check it out Monday 7pm – 8pm here.  The single is flying around the country on the AirIT distribution service, so give your local community station and ring and request some Elbury!

Finally, thanks to everyone who viewed, liked and shared the clip.  We have much more in store this year (e.g. second video and the full album arriving 1 May!) so stay tuned!
