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 building enough revenue to go into the studio to record tracks for a 3nd limited edition release projected to be available by late summer of 2012. The first and second installments in the Limited Edition Summers’ Series are now available at shows and at Neat Neat Neat, in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
