Manchester, England’s The Elephant Trees is an alternative rock quartet that you’re going to want to get to know before they blow up and then have to listen to us chirp, “We told you so.” Previous single “Open Up” garnered the group a ton of positive press, not to mention the accolades they already accumulated beforehand. Well, today, we’re fortunate to be helping the band debut their riveting new single “Hooked.” Loaded with more of the gang’s grunge-pop sounds, Martha Phillips’ powerful vocals, and the band’s tight instrumentation, we urge you to get “Hooked” below.

Commenting on the new single, singer and songwriter Martha Phillips noted: “‘Hooked’ was inspired by an unhealthy obsession that I needed to get out on paper, rather than leave it festering in my head. It’s about getting stuck on someone that’s not good for you.”

Upcoming Show Dates:

03/21 – Old Queen’s Head, London
03/24 – Headrow House, Leeds
