The Elky Summers is a 4 piece band comprised of guitar, bass, drums and keyboards. The band was formed in the spring of 2010. They have been described as sounding like a mix between early Bangles and the Velvet Underground.They play “Hooky jangle-pop with the jagged edge of a broken heart.” The band has played several local and out-of-town shows, including Indianapolis and Chicago. The Elkys are focusing on the release of their first full-length, self-titled, vinyl record.
