radarlove: elle milano
Elle vs Elle

This week, El talks to lead singer Adam from Elle Milano about the mechanics of hype in an age of the unsigned indie band. Styling from Leicester in the UK, Elle Milano have sparked a wildfire of interest within the scene despite their passive publicity methods. Their music does all the promoting for them: fast, furious, darn catchy with lashings of sarcasm in their politically charged lyrics. On Monday night, we'll talk about the value of hype, confronting lyrics along with their adventures in lo-fi. Imagine - all this combined with the group's insatiable love of pop music. How can you not love this band? Check out what these guys are all about on their website..

.. or you can just download Swearing's for Arts Students

Check out how the band got together in an excerpt that didn't make the final cut due to the inordinate blandness of the question & the creatively odd answer. It also missed the final edit because the interviewer (ahem) was having a laughing fit mid sample.
