Vanguard: Elefant - Sunshine Makes Me Paranoid
By Keelan Kirby

Elefant's new album is the very intriguing and catchy Sunshine Makes Me Paranoid.  It has a kind of melodious flow that carries the CD and each song harmoniously blends into the next, in such a way that you cant seem to turn it off.  The CD is in no way flawless however, many new bands carry the 'lack of originality' curse and Elefant is no exception.  However this seems to be overlooked by Diego Garcia's soothing voice and enchanting delivery.  

The album also, at first glance, seems to be monotonous in lyrics, however at closer inspection you can see that the album is telling a story.  After listening to this album many times over I feel as if I am picking up Diego's diary and reading stories from his life.  As the stories unfold I see that this album is an epic love story.

The story is delivered using an upbeat tempo complemented by Diego's melodramatic voice.  However, the album is at the same time very emotionally draining, for example, "Annie" carries the continuous up beat tempo of the album yet, the song is very despairing.  It is a song of great loss and can leave you feeling empty, with a great many questions lingering in your mind.

Elefant is an elegant album with Coldplay influence readily apparent.  This album seems to follow Coldplay's stylish harmony and soothing lyrics.  Still, on closer examination you can also decipher influence on the part of The Cure.  All in all this is a must have album for music lovers and should be in every library.  After listening to the album once you will find yourself humming along and won't be able to forget the hauntingly romantic lyrics.
