Hills Like Elephants celebrate release of Feral Flocks at Bar Pink

"Motown with keyboards" quintet drops sophomore album in North Park.

Just back from a weeks of nonstop shows at SXSW in Austin, Hills Like Elephants will be celebrating the release of the sophomore album, Feral Flocks (Requiemme Records/BMG Chrysalis), on Friday, March 29 at Bar Pink with Barbarian and Keith Sweaty.

The video for the single Ninjavitus depicts a day in the life of the soulful indie five-piece hustling their name on the streets of North Park, stopping by Fat Boy's Deli, getting kicked off of Bar Pink's porch, and partying like gangstars all night long.

The album title comes from a prerecorded zoo segment that frontman Sean Davenport overheard while interviewing with FM 94/9 host Tim Pyles and refers to lost birds of prey forming feral flocks to migrate home.

There’s a metaphor in there somewhere, Davenport told the Reader in December, disclaiming: “I’m not trying to be profound. Like, if I wouldn’t say it to you at a bar, I won’t say it lyrically. I’m not going to start spouting poetry.”

Davenport says Feral Flocks strikes an upbeat contrast to the laments of his debut release.

“On Endless Charade, I was harping on the idea of past relationships, but I was also trying to move on,” Davenport says. “Feral Flocks is more about noticing the subtleties of life.”
