Ellevator’s new single ‘Party Trick’ is about feeling ‘like Peter Pan on tour’

Hamilton trio Ellevator are back with a new single, “Party Trick.”

The track serves as the final preview of their forthcoming debut album, The Words You Spoke Still Move Me, out May 6th via Arts & Crafts. “Party Trick” is an intimate ballad, revolving around atmospheric instrumentals, pulsing keys, and emotive vocal lines.

“A friend said to me that being in a band means never growing up,” frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche explains of “Party Trick.” “It’s easy to feel like Peter Pan on tour, all the trappings of adulthood a hundred track stops and a thousand miles in the rearview. I started writing this song to my teenage self: a flighty, insecure kid posturing confidence. I’d jump around to all the different cliques like a self-styled Ferris Bueller, leaving just before friendships could settle in. Being on the road brought out those same old tendencies: keep it all on the level, don’t go too deep. Driving down the highway, floating through the hall/ Everything is different, nothing’s changed at all.”

In addition to “Party Trick,” The Words You Spoke Still Move Me features previously released singles “Sacred Heart,” “Slip” “Charlie IO,” and “Easy.”
