The New York City-based combo Elefant was assembled during the second half of 2001 when singer + guitarist Diego Garcia hooked up with guitarist Mod, bassist Jeff Berrall and drummer Kevin McAdams to form a new Alternative-Rock group, after the dissolution of the frontman's previous project.
The band would spend much of their next year gigging the NYC club scene;
their live shows and songwriting skills brought them to the attention
of Kemado Records, an indie label who subsequently signed them.
At the start of 2003 the foursome released a 3-track EP entitled "Gallery Girl"; their debut full-length album, "Sunlight Makes Me Paranoid", followed in April and over a year later the group shot the video for the single "Misfit".
Elefant issued their sophomore album, "The Black Magic Show", in April 2006; the disc, which included the lead single "Lolita", reached #14 on the Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart.
