Eddy Currents will be playing an acoustic set on December 17th from 2:30pm – 5:30pm at Iron Smoke Distillery.
About: Influenced heavily by the writings of Warren Zevon, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Peart, the eponymous debut album was released in 2020. Each of the album’s songs are somewhat reflective of the city in which they were written; from Halifax to Manhattan to Munich. Composed primarily on the piano, the album weaves between genres throughout. The sounds of Folk, Celtic, Rock and Synth-pop can be found, where the only constant in the arrangements is the plangent, baritone lead vocal that narrates these distinctly human accounts.
A lifelong musical journey begins when you grow up in a house filled with classical music and the Rolling Stones. Playing an array of instruments from an early age, a new melody or lyric was always waiting to be scribbled down at a moment’s notice. Several years later and following a decade on the road, various colorful tales of ordinary lives had been amassed. This epoch would then culminate in the retreat to a Toronto studio where these narratives could be brought to life. Armed with eight tunes surrounded by an air of melancholy, reflection and hope, this collection of songs would introduce the original musicality of Eddy Currents to the world.
The year 2021 saw the release of two new singles; ‘Crossroad’ in February and ‘The Breakline’ in November. Both songs found placements on various Indie Folk streaming playlists and continued to build upon the distinct singer-songwriter styling introduced on the debut album, only this time with a heavier acoustic influence.
The first four singles off of the upcoming album, ‘Electric Minds’ are available now, along with new live dates being added all of the time. So, turn up your amps and stay tuned…
