‘The Conspirator’ is a fresh energetic pop track. Frontman Jordi van Dyk’s powerful vocal becomes hauntingly beautiful and leaves the chorus hook “I never meant to break, break your heart” lingering in your mind long after listening to the song. ‘The Conspirator’ showcases the incredible song writing skills and growth from this trio, and gives the band a powerful sound that will soon see them dominate the music scene as one SA’s top live bands.
What the media has to say about the EP:
“Edisontide have grown and matured as a band over the last few years. You can hear they have found a great sound and have taken their original, really good song writing skills and worked on it to take their music to a whole new level. I’m so excited to hear more from this band” – Catherine Grenfell
The EP was recorded in June at Lightstain Studios in Potchefstroom with SAMA nominated and Ghoema-winning producer, Ewald Jansen van Rensburg. Jansen van Rensburg has produced some of SA’s top artists, including Elvis Blue, Monark and Majozi, and gives EDISONTIDE a cinematic pop edge that has the band very excited for fans to hear the songs from the forthcoming EP.
“The entire recording process was a unique experience for us and we really enjoyed the entire journey. It was spontaneous and driven by what felt right, for each song. For me personally, it was a journey of learning to trust my own instincts as a songwriter and I’m sure I can say the same for the rest of the band. Our producer was incredible and it was a privilege to work with him. In a sense, I’d say this entire EP is an honest reflection of who we are as a band,” comments frontman, Jordi van Dyk.
Edisontide’s debut EP is a collection of 5 incredibly well-written and produced tracks. Dripping with sexy synth pop sounds, songs such as ‘Sealion’ and ‘Au Revoir’ are power tracks marinated in pool of cinematic pop. A delicious serving of musical heaven from start to finish. Final track ‘Paper’ ends the EP off with a slow sensual ballad. ‘Paper’ will also be released on Friday 19 August as a 2nd instant gratitude track when pre-ordering the EP on iTunes.
