Ellis Island Sound comprises the duo of Pete Astor (The Loft, Weather Prophets) and David Sheppard (State River Widening, Snow Palms).
Hot on the heels of their critically revered 2014, Krautrock-meets-Afrobeat longplayer ‰Û÷Regions‰۪, Ellis Island Sound return with a brand new, seven- track mini-album.
The new album is another fertile marriage between motorik Mitteleuropa pulse and subtropical guitar and percussion textures.
Full of intricate, highly melodic arrangements for guitars, keyboards and tuned percussion, with a spacious sound palette propelled by polyrhythmic marimbas and xylophones and layered with infectious lead lines and choral.
For fans of Penguin Caf̩ Orchestra, Cluster, King Sunny Ade and Steve Reich.
