Fans of delicate indie-pop with a tender electronic foundation, thanks for making it so far. You will love what we are debuting today. It’s been two years since we last reported about German five-piece ELEPHANTS ON TAPE but today they return with Lightweights, a first single off their self-titled debut album which is planned for a release in early 2018.

Lightweights is a gentle and hypnotic piece, carried by the voice of singer Lisa Zwinzscher which is as emotional as it is sensually tempting. Fans of groups like HUNDREDS and ODD BEHOLDER won’t be disappointed from it. Here’s what the guys have to say about the tune:

‘Lightweights describes a state of suspense, an unforeseen situation, likely to tilt every second – connotations, which reflect the both exciting and seemingly weightless musical handwriting of our  debut album.’

The single is available right now digitally and NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION is surely happy to debut the great music video, created by director Tobias Schütze right here. Make sure to get ELEPHANTS ON TAPE on your next mixtape, okay?
