Alexander Kotz, a.k.a. Elderbrook, is undoubtedly one of the most complete and outstanding artists. The London-based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, have just published his debut album “Why Do We Shake In The Cold?“.
Between the previews of the past few months, “Numb” and “My House” showed us the most gloomy and funky influences of his sound, a soft and elegant style.
The tracklist also includes the most commercial track called “Something About You,” in collaboration with Rudimental, published in 2019. Instead, between the unpublished tracks, we can appreciate the soul/R&B shades of “Take A Minute.” Also, the synth-rock style of “Back To My Bed” is enhanced by the vocal range with few equals in the modern pop scene. About it, his voice has the role to end up “Why Do We Shake In The Cold?” in “Next December.”
The sound was developed in collaboration with Jacob Manson of Blonde, which handled the suggestive title-track with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
Between the bonus-track, there is “Fire,” in which he sings for Ytram, the new project of Martin Garrix, and three extracts from the live @ London Aquarium, including the cult track “Cola” with CamelPhat.
