A snapshot of life on the road with Elder Island

Elder Island take us on tour with Glass Animals.

Bristol-based electronic trio Elder Island have just finished touring a jam-packed European tour with Glass Animals, with key dates including huge shows in Berlin and Munich. By now we should know the magic of Elder Island’s sound, but may be unaware of how the band unwind after huge shows, or even how they pass time after hours stuck on a tour bus. The band, made up of Katy, Dave, and Luke, let Notion in on an exclusive behind-the-scenes look of their tour, all through the lens of a drugstore disposable camera. The film of the camera gives the feel of just a couple of mates who’ve gone to their first festival, bringing a disposable cam around to capture the good times. The travelling camera captured a candid and intimate look at the band, a side that we’ve never seen before. See the gallery below.

Listen to the band’s new single ‘Welcome State’ here.
Elder Island will be playing the main stage Love Saves the Day Festival this weekend. Buy tickets here.
