Noble Bodies is what the music industry calls a “side project.” It’s a band co-founded by Elaine Bradley, apart from her day job as drummer for the mega-selling pop-rock band Neon Trees.
She started it with Bryce Taylor and Chris Bennett, with whom she made music in their old band, Another Statistic, which played on the Provo club scene before Bradley joined Neon Trees more than a decade ago. Bradley called Taylor up a couple years ago, to help her rehearse when she was asked to lead the house band on “Late Night With Seth Meyers.”
The music their new band, Noble Bodies, makes allows Bradley and Taylor, who teaches religion at Brigham Young University, to explore questions about their faith. (All three musicians are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.) In this interview on sltrib.com, they talk about melding music with the big questions.
