As Elliot Root began recording their first full-length album, Conjure, the Nashville foursome had the rare opportunity to figure out exactly what kind of band they wanted to be. Their answer: an honest one. Instead of trying to create something that we thought was middle-of-the-road, or commercial, or whatever, I think we first and foremost wanted to be 100 percent honest with ourselves, says singer and guitarist Scott Krueger. Elliot Root also features Melissa Mattey (keyboards, drum programming), Sean Truskowski (drums) and Todd Bond (guitars). Conjure follows a pair of EPs released in 2015, which helped the band find its feet. Working on their first LP in 2016 was a deeper, more involved experience that found the musicians pushing boundaries in a new way. We were really allowing ourselves the freedom to pretty much just try anything that felt good or natural and not really direct it toward one certain vibe or one certain theme, Krueger says. The result is songs like 10,000, an introspective, atmospheric song that contrasts bright piano with soaring guitars.
