Elbow Coulee / Press

“Much has been said (by me, at some times) about how Elbow Coulee sounds like the meeting between pop-punk and dancey synth-rock, but the truth is that the band's range is larger than that. I mean, yeah, lead singer Andrew Tuller's voice does tend to sound pretty similar to that of the dude from the Offspring - but other than that, there are flourishes of lite prog-rock guitar noodling, mixing with dips into '90s emo and tight, spiky, early '00s dance-punk. It's a soup of offbeat rock from throughout the past couple decades, which makes for an intriguing and rather time-traveling listening experience, like flipping around the radio dial and landing on The End, KISW, or college radio, depending on which song (or, even, which verse) you happen to be hearing.”

“Elbow Coulee’s songs touch on both the most graceful and most primal facets of the human experience. Zane Thomas”

“The music of Elbow Coulee is inarguably influenced by the kind of power pop that ran so rampant in the mid- to late-1990s, but it is delivered in a deceptively prickly package. In every song there is a huge chorus, delivered in that particularly bratty, California punk style by lead singer Andrew Tuller. Keeping the songs from dissolving into mainstream radio pap are jagged edges that hug every power chord and triumphant tempo change. It's an effective way of transporting those classic pop sounds into the murkier territory of today's music. There's a kind of restless ambition at work in many of the songs, resulting in delightfully unexpected turns, like the piano that comes twinkling along in "Strangers for Now" to accompany Elbow Coulee's surprisingly sweet harmonies. - Rev. Adam McKinney”

“ Elbow Coulee varied their sound quite a bit, occasionally bringing the keys out more prominently, playing with various envelope modifications and getting some dramatic effects. I like the reasonably fast tempo and the good control of tempo they show within some songs, speeding up and then slowing back down for effect. You can tell the band is well rehearsed, they frequently play with tricky rhythmic variations and fast full speed song endings and pretty much everyone nails them. ”

“I love discovering a bunch of kids who just want to rock. Whether it's a desperate attempt to hang on to my youth or not is questionable. The quartet known as Brownstar features Andrew Tuller (vocals and guitar), Shane Woras (lead guitar), Matt Tuller (bass) and Loren Boley (drums). In reality,”
