INTERVIEW: Louis Edwards (EBONIVORY)
From childhood friends to one of the most engaging acts in the heavier Aussie music realms, Ebonivory are a tale of innovative musical modernity, splicing brawling heaviness with delicate allure in their signature take on the alternative genres.
Generally aligned under the "prog" moniker for their emotive yet affably complex tunes, this Ballarat-bred quintet are perhaps better reflected as manifestations of the prismatic chameleons their music evokes, with emotive melodics, gritty hues and booming arrangements transcending genre borders and flinging both the band and the listener into a sonic maelstrom that both rages and soothes.
Swiftly finding themselves as one of the fastest growing bands in the Aussie progressive scene with a huge run of live shows and new singles over the past few years, Ebonivory are set to ignite the newest and most ambitious chapter yet for themselves come Friday June 5th when their brand new album The Long Dream I finally finds its way into the world. And before the album drops to dazzle your ears and your soul, today come join in a chat with Ebonivory shred lord and total lovely human Louis Edwards talking album shenanigans, early music loves and more. Interview below.
