Say Hi

It’s been over a year since Say Hi’s Eric Elbogen released his latest record, the kicky Oohs & Aahs, but the guy’s still had a truly buzzworthy 2010. Elbogen gained national exposure when one of Oohs’ most memorable tracks, “One, Two...One,” was featured in a slick TV commercial for a Cadillac sports car; earlier in the year his shaggy, bearded self was also interviewed on ABC News, who fawningly described his music as “bedroom, melodic, wistful indie pop.” Now he’s gathering a full band together; besides tonight’s KEXP show and Say Hi’s opening slot for Barsuk labelmates Menomena at the Showbox in September, Elbogen recently tweeted that he’s back to the grind recording the follow-up to Oohs. With Head Like A Kite. ERIN K. THOMPSON
