Soul music lovers who appeared on stage of iconic festivals around the world will release an invigorating energy that you won’t be able to shake off for a long time.

Treating retro-soul aesthetics with a modern point of view, the Ephemerals defy familiar patterns by melting a wide variety of tones in the same pot. The band, whose first album, Nothing Is Easy was highly praised by influential music people like Gilles Peterson, Rob da Bank and Craig Charles as soon as it was released in 2014, and who gave one of their songs to the hit TV series, Homeland, became one of London’s sources of pride.

The band bring up love, loss, life or death in their songs, getting their inspiration from Buddhist literature, bringing on philosophical matters and not holding back their political opinions. Ephemerals fused jazz, afrobeat, hip-hop, psychedelic and rock into their music more intensely over the years, and Wolfgang Valbrun, who joined this brilliant band after meeting the founder and guitarist Hillman Mondegreen during a tour of France, stands out with his passionate voice. 

Released in 2017 the band’s last album, Egg Tooth, has impressive orchestral arrangements, and carry the Ephemerals’ soul freely between funky beats, jazz ballads, or pop beats that cling to the ear. They enchanted audiences in international festivals like Glastonbury, Bestival, and Mostly Jazz. Soon, they will be at the Studio with their heart-mending performance.

“You have to make sure you're not alienating the audience, there has to be that element of entertainment there. But we don't want to go on stage and be entertainers.”

Hillman Mondegreen, 2017
