Platinum-selling UK artists Elbow have installed PMC loudspeakers at their own studio, where the group's next album is currently being recorded. The members of the Mercury Prize-winning band have picked PMC IB2SA-P main monitors and twotwo.6 nearfield monitors for their studio in Manchester, as well as selected products from PMC's domestic twenty series for use at home. PMC monitors are also used throughout London's Metropolis Mastering, where Elbow's last three albums have been mastered. Currently working on their sixth album of original material, the members of Elbow are basking in the phenomenal success of The Seldom Seen Kid and build a rocket boys!, and are keen to become more involved in composing soundtracks and film scores after their experience writing the Olympic theme for the BBC this summer. Craig Potter (pictured), keyboard player and the band’s resident producer/engineer, said “We have been using the PMCs for a few months and found that they allow us to monitor back exactly what we have recorded with incredible detail. There's no flattering coloration, and with solid extended bass and very natural mids we've found we can really rely on them.” He added, “We also have PMCs at home now and we've all heard subtleties in our music collections that we hadn't noticed before.” Miles Roberts, managing director of PMC, comments, “To have a band of Elbow’s standing choose to equip their studio with PMC speakers is a fantastic testament to the unswerving dedication shown by our engineers to produce speakers that allow discerning artists to capture their music without compromise.” He continued, “We are also delighted that the band has agreed to act as endorsees for our products and look forward very much to hearing the next album, which will be the first to have been crafted using PMC all the way from the writing to the mastering stage.” www.pmc-speakers.com
