Say Hi

Based on the sundry articles penned about Eric Elbogen, Say Hi's creator and sole permanent member is as an inert character whose minutiae make for great material. A Seattle Weekly story portrayed Elbogen as a perfectionist when it came to professionalism—akin to “the Donald Trump of indie rock,” based on how he’s freely fired past tour mates—with an “easygoing aura” in person. He also comes off as slightly awkward and uncertain of how to respond to compliments. Two Pitchfork record reviews of his project from back when it was called Say Hi to Your Mom fill in more colors: he’s a good hook-writer, but also noncommittal, nerdy, careerist, and a haplessly muddled lyricist. Maybe there’s something about the nature of his music that makes him especially susceptible to discussions of his character; even if it can get intense, Say Hi’s indie pop carries the delicate, intimate quality of something obsessively constructed at home. His voice accentuates that atmosphere well, being breathy, raw and uneven.
