Dubbed, "Chew it up, Spit it out, Rock and Roll", Cheers Elephant is a tight, rootsy, psychedelic poprock quartet from Philadelphia, PA. Digging deep into three part harmonies and pop song arrangements, Cheers has a sound that'll make your dad's toe tap, your mom's hip shake, and your sister's heart throb.
On May 8th, 2012, Cheers Elephant played The Apple Store Philadelphia for the official release of their third record, Like Wind Blows Fire. The record was extremely well received as it charted well on the CMJ indie charts . The track 'Leaves' hit #4 on on Hype Machine and featured on We Are Hunted, NPR, Ex.FM, Good Music All Day, and Spotify. Cheers has shared the stage with acts like Mayer Hawthorne, Rubblebucket, The Go! Team, The Walkmen, Darwin Deez, Jefferson Starship, The Mother Hips, and more. So, why not take a sip of Cheers Elephant? The buzz is good.
"Sound City Players did 3-plus hours, but my favorite SXSW set came from Philly's Cheers Elephant: great, hooky indie-pop."
- Eric Danton, Rolling Stone / WSJ Music
"Dubbing themselves as the dudes with the best indie rock haircuts, [Cheers Elephant] blend playful humor, energy, and some really great three-part harmonies."
"Their harmonies are reminiscent of The Beatles and they carry a lighthearted energy similar to the goofy They Might Be Giants, a combination that makes them easy to love and hard to ignore."
- USA Today
"This is a band that not only has the sound to be big, but the work ethic and the creative side to do so in a unique way."
- Good Music All Day
