Modern psych-pop outfit Elephant Stone have shared a video for their new single “M. Lonely.”

The song comes from their forthcoming EP, “Le voyage de M. Lonely dans la lune”, out February 18th. Sung entirely in French, the forthcoming EP sees the English-speaking band embracing a challenge. The release, “M. Lonely,” is a groovy, psychedelic anthem. The accompanying video follows Elephant Stone as they perform along to the tune beneath trippy effects.

“I built this story line about a hermit named “M. Lonely” who is very content in his solitary world until a world event happens that causes everyone else to stay home as well… sound familiar? He sees this as a mockery of him and his choices, deciding instead to build a rocket ship to the moon to be left alone,” Elephant Stone’s Rishi Dhir explains. The story of “M. Lonely” continues across the EP’s four tracks. It moves from the upbeat hooks and dreamy synths on the first two songs to lonely melodies on the last two. M. Lonely “ultimately realizes he was happier back on imperfect Earth with all of its imperfect people,” Dhir explains.

Dhir has helmed Elephant Stone for the last 13 years. Throughout their catalogue, they’ve woven stories of loss, grief, existential crisis, and rebirth.

Their forthcoming EP is a “love letter to Montreal, Quebec, and all of our French-speaking fans around the world.”
