Drapers presents: Holy Thief EP launch with Elk & Simon Davies

Holy Thief launching their new EP:
Brooding, heart wrenching, explosive. Noisemakers from the Midlands since 2016. Think Jeff Buckley fronting Oceansize with Mogwai's rhythm section. - take a listen here::


Elk formed in Coventry at the tail end of 2017 after coming together through the love of hard work and passion for music. The band is made up of 2 welsh men, 1 french man, and an Englishman. Musically the band blends an unavoidable splash of alt American sound (think KOL, TOM PETTY, RYAN ADAMS) into a modern pop/rock feel, resulting in a refreshing and uplifting sound that will leave any music lover wanting to hear more and desperate to know more about this exciting new uk based quartet.


Simon Davies originates from Birmingham and began playing piano and violin from an early age and later explored and found his own style on guitar. He developed his ear as his influences changed and honed in on creating his own sound and songs independently and with others. With early bands such as The Tone Thieves supporting The Ordinary Boys, Nizlopi and Dan Smith (Bastille). He has also worked closely with artists such as The Love Child Electric and Chris Tye (Birmingham Singer Songwriter) and can often be seen with this hypnotic talent alongside Jayne Powell. Simon recently starred on The Voice UK.
