EWAH release Endless Love in the lead-up to BIGSOUND
EWAH & The Vision of Paradise evoke familiar Australian landscapes; beaches, dunes, bushland and suburban streets. These idyllic images, drenched in summer light throw dark shadows.
They have just released "Endless Love" from their noir-rock-meets-shimmering-new-wave album Everything Fades to Blue, as part of the Songs from the Edge (SFTE) program in the lead-up to their BIGSOUND showcase.
"Endless Love" was recorded and filmed live in Hobart's majestic Domain House, a grand neo-Gothic sandstone landmark built in 1848-49. According to EWAH front woman, Emma Waters, it's "a song about being caught between two places in an endless twilight between sinister and angelic, depressed and liberated, with love as the symbolic light at the end of the darkness."
The band’s debut release, Everything Fades to Blue has attracted attention from ears nationally and internationally, including Jarvis Cocker’s Sunday Service on BBC Radio 6 (UK), Henry Rollins on KCRW radio (USA), and back in Australia, was album of the week Edge Radio (Hobart), Top Ten Albums of the Week PBS (Melbourne) and has picked up regular play on Double J.
EWAH & The Vision of Paradise have been playing a slew of shows including A Festival Called Panama 2017 and Dark Mofo 2017.
In April 2017, Everything Fades to Blue made The Guardian’s top ten listing of Australia’s best underground releases.
You can catch EWAH & The Vision of Paradise at BIGSOUND's Tassie Lunchtime Party on Wed 6 September at The Brightside Outdoor Stage.
