Next Music from Tokyo Vol 13 – Elephant Gym

Elephant Gym is a bass-driven, math rock band from Kaohsiung, Taiwan. The band formed in 2012 and is composed of Tif on bass, Tell on guitar, and Chia-Chin on drums. Elephant Gym delivers clear and memorable bass lines, emotional guitar riffs, and melodic drumming in their mostly instrumental song production. Since 2013, Elephant Gym has started to invite singers to compose with them.

Tell and Tif are siblings. In their childhood, their mother taught them classical music into their adolescence. Later, they developed an interest in rock music, especially post rock and math rock. Tell met Tu in a high school music club and formed Elephant Gym along with Tif after discovering they all shared the same taste in music.

Elephant Gym may seem an unusual name for a band but it describes their music perfectly.  Elephant is a metaphor for their low-end bass-centric sound while gym is short for the intricate musical gymnastics characteristic of math rock.

Fans of Japanese math rock bands such as toe and JYOCHO that excel at emotional music with clean instrumentation should fall in love with Elephant Gym in a heartbeat.

Next Music from Tokyo Vol 13 – Paranoid Void

paranoid void is an all-female 3-pc math rock band from Osaka.  They started off playing hard-driving, emotive post-punk similar to MASS OF THE FERMENTING DREGS.  In fact, guitarist Meguri was temporarily the support guitarist for MOTFD after Chiemi left.  Although paranoid void has always been a technical band, in 2015, they started dabbling in math rock and odd time signatures most likely influenced by fellow Kansai band tricot.

Most recently with the release of their latest album ‘Literary Math’ paranoid void have delved further into math rock territory and moved away from a tricot/MOTFD hybrid and developed a style of their own.

paranoid void are an awesome combination of technical chops and raw power­—beauty and the nerd and the beast, all in one.
