“You Are Enough” by El Ten Eleven

El Ten Eleven recently released their new single “You Are Enough”. The track is off their forthcoming release Banker’s Hill. The band create progressive music from scratch, onstage, with no help from laptops or additional musicians. Made up of Kristian Dunn (bass, guitar) and Tim Fogarty (drums), they utilize multiple looping pedals to create songs that sound as though they are being played by at least six people. Most first-timers to an El Ten Eleven show are stunned that the band is a duo.

Banker’s Hill is a nine-song exploration into the challenge of living in the moment, and they previously shared the album’s lead single “Phenomenal Problems”. El Ten Eleven’s music has been described as “meditation in motion,” which seems apt – the album explores the paradox of beauty in anxiety, the importance and effect of family and the fleeting possibility of satisfaction. Since the band’s inception in 2002, they have always been just two people who produce their own records. For Banker’s Hill, the band brought producer Sonny Diperri (Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors, Protomartyr) into the fold, which is the first time the duo has ever worked with an outside producer, and moved up to the beautiful Panoramic House studios in Stinson Beach on the beautiful Northern California coast to create their seventh album (also, their first for Topshelf Records).
