ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It has been over 4 years since EWAH’s last release. Now EWAH introduces her latest recordings with the 7” vinyl limited release, Superstition or Love/My Heart is Your Home.

EWAH continues to explore new themes and sounds, and her latest project is no exception. EWAH’s writing has covered themes of heart-aching honesty, wry domestic drama, escapist Australiana, and this latest recording sees EWAH depart from her shambling DIY and tech-reticent tendencies to explore a more polished electronica art pop sound. The first of these new recordings are presented on electric blue 7 inch vinyl. (Don’t worry if you don’t have a turntable – you get to covet the object while you download a free mp3 version).

Taking hiatus from playing live shows in Melbourne, EWAH began writing songs at home on a newly bought hollow body guitar. For a long time the themes and lyrics were obscure, coming in “glossolalia” or non-language based vowel and consonant sounds often associated with religious worship and famed by The Cocteau Twins. As the process unraveled it became clear that the songs emerging suited an electronic application.

Superstition or Love is a song about constraints and freedom, real and imagined and ideas of habit and faith. And of course love.

EWAH now calls Tasmania home, having relocated after half a lifetime in Melbourne.

Not long on the island, she formed a band. After waking in the night with the words “vision of paradise” tumbling from her lips, she fell into a sound and deep sleep. The band had their name. The Vision of Paradise perform EWAH’s new electronic songs in a live pub format. Drums, guitar, bass and keys. To ensure a transference of the mystical 80s synth electronica from the recordings to the live line up, the analog Roland Juno-1, played by Charles Donnelly has become critical to the band’s distinct live sound.

Coming up:
The Superstition or Love video, made with local filmmakers Raef Sawford and Mark Kulenberg is due for release late October 2015. Set in a religious hall overlooking the river Derwent, the video plays with time, space, light and containment in reference to the thematics of the Side A single.

A brief history:
Highlights of EWAH’s music career include supports with Rowland S Howard, Harry Howard and the NDE, The Bird Blobs, French/Tucsan, Arizonian artist Marianne Dissard and Oliver Mann. The latter, a truly original operatic folk songwriter and performer, invited EWAH to join him on the gothic and delicate duet, Deepest Temple Part II.

In 2010 EWAH took home the APRA Darebin Songwriters’ Award after performing her a capella song When You’re Down & Out.
