Review of the "Torn At The Seams" EP:
"A new-ish Dublin band made up of old-ish musicians from bands such as Sack (Martin McCann), The Brilliant Trees (Tony Barrett) and The Josephs (Mark Healy), Elevens are a combined aural and visual entity who perform selected gigs in Dublin and beyond. We haven't yet seen what they offer for the eyes, but if the music on this recently released EP is anything to go by we're talking about summer haze, autumnal bliss, winter calm and spring-loaded steps. Taking it down a notch or three seems to be at the heart of the band, yet there's an innate dynamism at play that lifts even the quietest of music into an area that persuades you to listen to it. At six tracks, this might not be the full story of Elevens, but for now they're definitely on the right side of beautiful." ~ Tony Clayton-Lea / The Ticket (Dec.9th, 2011)

ELEVENS, named after the Finglas Dublin 11 postcode from which they hail, is a three piece acoustic band from Dublin, Ireland. Formed in 2009 by Martin McCann and Tony Barrett from two of Dublin's most prestigious Indie bands (SACK and BRILLIANT TREES), it wasn't long before a third member Mark Healy (THE JOSEPHS / JERRY FISH & THE MUDBUG CLUB) joined forces to add some tonal colour to complete the overall sound. What sets ELEVENS apart from the average acoustic setup is their collaborations with photographers and visual artists to incorporate a subtle and complimentary backdrop for ELEVENS' poignant tales of love lost and found. In todays climate of the harsh and abrasive, ELEVENS have come to soothe the senses with their simple arrangements and unique delivery.
