E B U – Hinge

Vinyl (LP)
NoCorner [NC12009]

As promised, here it is!

the long anticipated E B U full-length on NoCorner is now sat here at RwdFwd HQ, ready to ship on the 11th.

If you managed to grab one of the limited 12″s with ‘Falling’ & ‘Light Show’ plus remixes – then you know what you’re in for here, and the chances of your captivation are already high…
If not, then here’s your chance for the full dive into E B U’s one-in-a-million sound world.
It’s a very special record, one of the most uniquely alluring albums we’ve heard in some time –
and we’re sure this is only the beginning of her journey, so do yourself a favour and step inside now.

Throughout Hinge, Unnatural sounds and pitches exhale in melodic chants, ominous basslines resound and eerie loops fixate in this macabre ensemble. You are captive in her world. Moments of haunting clarity keep you wondering where she will take you next whilst strange narratives unfold. In her music and performances, her chameleonic visual display is charged with emotion, keeping you suspended in a state of flux as she orbits through the spectrum. ‘Stimulated by human behaviour and existence, she questions the very nature of being and invites the audience to explore through her cathartic performance.’

To our ears, her sound captures elements of the radiophonic qualities by electronic pioneers such as Delia Derbyshire, through to unlikely melody and harmony akin to that of Ryuchi Sakamoto or Laurie Anderson.

It’s an exploration of strange places with a weird & wonderful sphere, sonically capturing the colourful intensity of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Holy Mountain, or perhaps sounding like a much more out-there, much more convincingly extra-terrestrial Space lady… These are just vague comparisons though… Essentially, her sound is a total world of it’s own.

Hinge, E B U’s debut album, is an outer body experience that will conjure up memories you never had before, images you can’t quite place but somehow relate to, and a sense of sweet disorientation as you slip into a whirlpool of shapeshifting melody, harmony and frequency.
