The Event

Raised on the cool precision of late-aughts guitar music and the melodrama of post-rock, Ellevator hold lean hooks and sweeping crescendos in perfect tension. Frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche wields her arresting lyricism with clear-eyed lucidity, drawing deeply personal reflections from big themes like power, love, and loss. To make their debut album, the Hamilton, Ontario-based band enlisted indie-rock luminary and former Death Cab For Cutie member Chris Walla to produce. Released in 2022 via Arts & Crafts, ‘The Words You Spoke Still Moves Me’ inhabits an emotional landscape that is both breathtakingly intimate and impossibly vast. With floating vocals, soaring guitars, deep synths, and memorable basslines, Ellevator pays tribute to the scenes that first inspired the trio to make music while still sounding fresh and inventive.
