L’elan Vital is a Denver/Boulder, Colorado based rock band. The sound we developed over the past 3 years started as an experiment and has become a well crafted art form. Our works generally begin peacefully yet through our patient crescendos melding our violin, guitars, keyboards, vocals, and drums we reach explosive climaxes.
Our music stands apart from typical radio rock due in part to our patience and the patience of our listeners. Our songs may take a few minutes to reach the catch-chorus, but when the awaited melody finally occurs, the wait proves its worth to the listener.
