Yves Jarvis and Romy Lightman are two of Canada's most enduring underground artists. Lightman is a member of the experimental duo Tasseomancy with her sister Sari, and Yves Jarvis has shapeshifted through many styles and names before settling on his current alias — his jazzy, lo-fi album Sundry Rock Song Stock was one of our favorite records of 2020. Today, Jarvis and Lightman have announced that they've teamed up for a new band called Lightman Jarvis Ecstatic Band. Their debut collaborative album Banned drops on June 25 via ANTI-, and the lead single "Elastic Band" is out today, as well as its very amusing video. It starts off as a psychedelic CGI bubble bath and ends with the two band members battling it out in a Dragonball Z-style fight. It's pretty appropriate for a meandering, shreddy song about a rocky relationship. Watch below.
