ELEPHANT HIVE (ISR)
Formed in 2015 by Rafael Cohen (guitar) and Tom Bollig (drums), Elephant Hive have toured all through Israel, Russia and greater Europe, taking part in high profile alternative music festivals in which they are hailed as one of the future bands to watch in the region.
With less-than-2-minute full tilt musical pieces and outbreaks of energy, the band
combines African sounds and rhythms with alternative indie Punk Rock a la Deerhoof, Queens of the Stone Age, Tool and Autolux among others to create a Prog Stoner Rock style that must be witnessed.
After a stint of European tours with multiple visits to Russia, Israel's Elephant Hive travelled to Australia to tour on the back of a Mojo Burning festival appearance in 2018.
The pair played to astonished crowds all over the country and will be back to tour Australia in July.
