Athens, Georgia-based href=“http://www.elfpower.com/">Elf Power will be dropping a new album titled 'Sunlight on the Moon' on October 1, marking the band's tenth studio album release.

To coincide with the album’s release, the band will be touring with reunited Neutral Milk Hotel.

Last week, Elf Power released a single from the album also named “Sunshine on the Moon“. The track is a succulent, accessible pop melody comprised of the band’s signature jangly guitars and psychedelic overtones. Like a lot of Elf Power songs, the track is immediately catchy, which is no easy feat for a band that has been composing melodic gems since 1994. Give it a listen. You will be singing along in no time.
