‘Elison’ from Des Moines to give us the joy of being able to listen to them and discover the new midwest rock! ‘Meet me halfway’ is a wonderful discover to do! Listen in on Formula Indie the November 5th!
Meet Me Halfway is the debut single from midwest indie rock duo, Elison, comprised of Marissa Kephart (singer, guitarist) and Scott Yoshimura (multi-instrumentalist, producer).
After 20 years of wishing, Marissa Kephart, set out to make music for the first time. Using the space allotted to her during lockdown she found the courage to finally pick up playing guitar and start taking voice lessons. Meet Me Halfway was the first demo she took to music teacher, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Scott Yoshimura. The two quickly found their creative energies and influences aligned and formed, elison. Inspired by bands such as Sparklehorse, Dinosaur Jr., Yo La Tengo, My Bloody Valentine, Big Thief, Slow Pulp and Soccer Mommy the two have created a sound unique to them.
Meet Me Halfway is about leaving unhealthy relationships behind. The track pulls you in with its immersive atmospheric mood, then propels you forward with its consistent driving motion. It’s both powerful and hopeful in messaging.
