Their first single “It’s not over” received very positive feedback and reached #16 on the Submithub Hot-or-Not Indie Chart.

At noon Saturday the band will release “X” and “How the Way Out Was Won.” Two two albums are a collection of previously unreleased material that were recorded a few years ago. The band calls the albums “not so much an anthology but a glance at our catalog, going back over a decade.”

ELSIE BINX was born when Kevin Wesley Williams and Erin Accomando began working together at The Sound Shop Studio in Macomb, Michigan in January of 2015. They set out to create the sound of a new pop/rock project. With Aaron Golematis’ help, they would produce a 7-song album (Smile and a Bullet) that would eventually bring together the group of musicians who call themselves ELSIE BINX (EBX) today.

Since March 2020, they’ve concentrated on new music and putting on digital concerts on their Twitch channel. As a way to be able to create some unique content while figuring out the new landscape of creating music as a band, they put out 2 cover singles with videos: “Separate Ways” by Journey and “The Show Must Go On” by Queen. These videos proved to keep their audience ready and waiting for what original music is to come.
