Elider (pronounced Ee-lie-da) play shiny and sheeny and guitary rock music. Elider's songs are written by Justin Harris (fro Hamilton NZ band Inchworm, but now based in Japan) and backed up by various musicians including Scott Newth (NZ band Rumpus Room), Scott Brodie (UK band Grok) and Ben Cole (The Joint Chiefs/The Datsuns).
Elider's first abum "Redbird" was released in February 2017, and is available on digital format or CD + digital. Recorded over a number of years in Osaka, Kyoto and Hamilton, the ten songs in the album feature melody upfront, with often complex guitar/keyboard layering beneath. From the intense, and ever-so-slightly angry "It's Time's Like This" to the quieter and summer-beach sounding "Waterdog", Elider place good songwriting as priority number one.
