From Their Official Facebook Page:

"Estelle first met Ido at a bad eighties party in New York's east village. The pair found a lot of common grounds when trying to compose a list of music they would play if they could take over the DJ booth. They came to know each other better: Estelle was a veteran of the Gainesville, FL indie pop scene, where she released two albums with Brittle Stars (ShelfLife records) and has been recording (and performing) with New York rock group, Human Television (Gigantic records). Ido, a video artist from Israel, was at the time playing with a New York rock band called Pale Blue Jeans.

Together, they formed Elephant Parade in the spring of 2005, recording songs in their bedrooms using cheap PC-chat microphones and freeware audio software. They started playing shows that summer, performing at such New York City venues as CBGB's, Sin-e, The Delancey, Northsix and Pianos, while generating buzz about town and being featured on various mp3 blogs, where their style has been often described as lo-fi dream pop.

In 2006 the pair released 'Bedroom Recordings,' a home made LP. Available only online and with no promotion whatsoever, the pair sold thousands of copies of the album out of their tiny bedroom in Brooklyn, making Elephant Parade a prominent independent act in the indie scene."
