Before 4ZZ could start broadcasting in 1975, a transmitter was ordered from the U.S. But after it was lost on the dock in New York, 4ZZ's chief engineer at the time Ross Dannecker built the station's first transmitter.
Long-time fringe-dwellers on the Brisbane live scene, lurking in the corners of craft markets and cafes, spinning stories into songs. With the introduction of bass, drums and synth in recent years, the band have shifted from traditional acoustic folk to a darker alt-folk-rock sound, including progressive and ambient elements. The band generally defy categorisation and move easily between mellow jazz interludes, rollicking folk-rock triumphs and intricate Baroque passages. Winsome melodies, three-part harmonies and interwoven musical textures. Elbury will release their debut LP in May 2017, following two previous EP releases (2013, 2015).
