Despite their band name, they have been around for three years already. The multinational septet from London was founded by its guitarist Hillman Mondegreen when he met singer Wolgang Valbrun at a concert in France. The title of their debut album is “Nothin Is Easy”, however they recorded it in three days, including rehearsals. Stylistically the Ephemerals are basing their sound on the imperishable: Retro Soul, rough sounds, a horn section, the passionate, often painful and desperate vocals. Their second album “Chasin Ghosts” was released late 2015. Overall, no wonder that some moments are reminiscent of the great Charles Bradley.
Now, the Ephemerals are back with a new album and a tour. The new album sees them refresh their sound with a new direction. Always unafraid to push the boundaries of their craft, this release unashamedly emanates Jazz, Afrobeat and Psychedelia which galvanises the Soul and R&B that remains at the heart of the band.
