Percival Elliott, UK duo recently released ‘Betty’ which features thundering piano melodies and lyrics that are hard hitting. A song that is about a lost woman who after being a big star is alone and sad and gives a look into the tragedy of her life. These guys are making waves in the UK and will become a big hit in America soon. You can listen to them and know that they have perfected their writing skills, and are ready to take the world by storm.
Percival Elliott have performed to sold-out audiences on a national UK tour with charting artists, as well as having collaborated with the likes of Fatboy Slim.Percival Elliott are an indie rock duo from the south coast of England. Formed by the belief that true friends can create something meaningful, Olly Hite and Samuel Carter-Brazier united to grace audiences with their poignant lyricism and neo-nostalgic melodies and have since been captivating listeners at sold-out shows across the UK.
Titled in memory of Hite’s great grandfather, Percival Elliott, born in 1883 was an inventor who created one of the first ice-cream emporiums in Brighton. After discovering a dusty box of trinkets in the back of Hite’s family attic, the untouched time capsule unveiled Percival Elliott’s mysterious inventions, engraved ice-cream paraphernalia, haunted photographs and time honoured war medals. The revelation of these long-forgotten hidden treasures became embedded within the duo’s imagination and musical creativity and thus Percival Elliott was reborn.
‘Betty’ gets in from work (it appears) looking stressed. Lights up a smoke and strips down on the bed. In black and white you see Percival Elliott playing the upbeat sad but enjoyable tune. Flashing back between the band and ‘Betty’ through out the music video it plays out the song in perfection. A sad but expected ending for ‘Betty’. Overall the music video was great. The audio is fantastic and the video was a story that told out the lyrics.
Percival Elliott is a band to keep an eye on as I feel they are making their name known in a way that if continued will send them up the charts fast.
