Ephemerals – Egg Tooth

jal233

With support from the likes of Gilles Peterson and Craig Charles, ephemerals star has risen steadily in the three years since they launched their critically acclaimed debut album, nothin is easy. Unafraid to push boundaries, their third album, egg tooth, explores new directions: their modern soul and R&B songs now tinged with flavours of jazz, afrobeat, psychedelia and bluesy cinematic orchestral arrangements.

With influences ranging from Nina Simone to Kate Tempest, Steve Reich to Alice Coltrane, egg tooth sees songwriter Hillman Mondegreen and singer Wolfgang Valbrun combine beautifully, marrying direct and honest lyricism with powerful vocal delivery. It’s an album with recurring themes of rebirth, love, world politics and philosophy in a varied and eclectic collection of songs – an eclecticism perhaps a reflection of ephemerals diverse backgrounds: the singer Wolfgang is a New Yorker living in Paris, the writer in Nottingham, the sax player lives in France, while the keys, trumpet and rhythm section are in Bristol, Sussex and London.

Ephemerals – Egg Tooth is now available for pre-order, vinyl, digital and cd
