A mere 3 weeks since their latest, electrifying single and video release ‘willpower’ which marked the introduction of their upcoming albumlike i need tension.The impressive four piece Italian outfit Eugenia Post Meridiem have returned with their next slice of eclectic perfection. With hints of surf pop threaded throughout, helped with the infectious guitar motif ‘around my neck’ is the second single taken from the highly intriguing album project set for release on the 18th of November.
A kaleidoscopic medley of flavours, breakdowns, switch ups and builds, ‘around my neck’ is yet another demonstration of EPM’s exceptional, tasteful talents and unshakeable chemistry as a band. With just enough variation to keep listeners hooked and tentatively resting on the edge of their seat all whilst remaining seamlessly cohesive and mellifluously fluid. A feat often attempted but rarely mastered with such ease and authenticity.
With this second offering now unleashed, they set the wheels firmly in motion, hurtling full speed ahead towards the luminous full length project. Much like a meteor blasting through space, the band continue to divulge their new, cosmic, musical odyssey like i need tension,piece by delectable piece. Dreamy, hypnotic and utterly other worldly yet tethered with sounds, qualities and textures of the past, EPM’s music is an enigmatic smorgasbord of crisp tones, exquisite colour and unique delicacies quite simply unlike anything heard before.
Unafraid to experiment, to step into the unknown and to so solidly go against the tide, EPM’s art is filled with quality, curiosity and ingenuity. Nothing is included without purpose or intention and each track is as poetic and reflective as it is transcendent and meditative.
Placing its roots somewhere in the mystical universe of Hiatus Kaiyote, Christine and the Queens, PYJÆN and Tame Impala. Eugenia Post Meridiem’s sound is inextricably eccentric, often abstract but always refreshingly intangible, allowing the listener's own interpretation and understanding to take flight.
