The twists and turns of the first song to be revealed from the four track EP Mama Earth, which was itself released as a stand alone single on the 27th, holds the listener in a rested trance.

The primordial hue of the opening harmonised voices and natural percussion seeps deep in to the bone-marrow prior to the track opening up to a trippy-blues number and the music can be felt slowly pulsing through the blood stream with a welcome feeling of taking over the mind and body.

The quintet are able to bring together influences from their earlier years, with blends of South American, Scandinavian, Middle Eastern and Northern European folklore generating a sound which has both an otherworldliness yet simultaneously an absorbing earthiness.

Originally formed as a duo Wolfpack is the first song to be revealed that reflects of the new Tuvaband reconfiguration.

Rather than layering the song with antonyms of sound the track has a mellowed flow of synonyms that melt one in to the other creating just over four and a half minutes of dreamy ambient harmonised electronica that wraps softly around the spectral voice and leaves the listener becalmed from the daily travails of life.

Continuing to secure gigs across Europe forthcoming appearances in Iceland and Germany can only enhance the reach of a more than capable musician.

Exploded View

Exploded View

The first track to surface from the ten track album (available on bandcamp) Raven Raven, the antepenultimate on the release – unleashes a brooding menace that looms through the room in a dystopian burrow of electronica and percussion casting dark shadows through which the hyperphysical vocal and veiled guitar surface to transfix the listener.

EWIAN – Paradise Lost – Audio

The German melancholic-electrorock project EWIAN released the LP Of Those Who Drown To Live today.

EWIAN - Paradise Lost

EWIAN

The haunting soundscape of their roughly fifty seven minutes, ten track, album (available on bandcamp), which swoops and soars through the room in a mesmeric flow of, instrumentation electronica and vocal which sometimes has the listener wiping their eyes to the forlorn echoes and other times swept by a sense of euphoric self-realisation.

Of Those Who Drown To Live is best engaged in its complete journey to fully encapsulate the moments along the way – the seventh track is Paradise Lost.
