Dundalk artist and multi-instrumentalist Shane Clarke AKA Elephant has been a TTA favourite for some time now. 

Bounding with harmonic finesse and a masterfully earnest touch, his shapeshifting alt-pop craft will get the full-length treatment later this year. Ahead of that, ‘Waiting Game Part II’ is a subtle yet slick homespun effort, marrying balmy synths with the song’s stripped-back slow rock surge. At the forefront, once again, is Clarke’s neatly harmonised vocals, quietly bursting with massive heart.

Elephant’s strongest single to date? We reckon so. Delve in.
