The York based rock quintet are causing a quiet stir in the alternative scene. Elliot Minor are embarking on a nationwide tour in October taking in such esteemed venues as King Tut's and the Mean Fiddler.

'Jessica' opens in the style of early Idlewild and breaks into American drenched power-pop/rock that is of grandiose dimensions. Vocal mutli-tracking and harmonising gives the song a big sound which is further emphasised by the strings and piano that sit underneath the heavy guitars and drums in a Muse-esque way.

Elliot Minor may well find favour with the Emo crowd aswell as those who sit on the pop/rock periphery and enjoy guitar noodling and drums that sound bigger than your house.
