Evian Christ - Waterfall (EP)
Since his emergence at the tail end of 2011 Evian Christ, AKA Joshua Leary, has had a whirlwind two years. Off the back of his breakthrough mixtape ‘Kings And Them’ which came out on Tri Angle Records in February 2012, the 24 year old Ellesmere Port, UK, native has produced music on Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’, collaborated with acclaimed conceptual artist Matthew Barney, released the notably abstract soundpiece ‘Duga-3’, performed around the world alongside the likes of Purity Ring, Actress and Four Tet, and garnered positive reviews and features in global tastemaker titles including Details Magazine, Dazed & Confused, Pitchfork and VIBE, amongst many others.
On ‘Kings And Them’ Evian Christ conjured up a sound that was influenced by hip hop as it much as it was by more ambient forms of music. With ‘Waterfall’ Evian Christ has taken his unique sound into a far noisier and more aggressive territory, exhibiting a creative restlessness that continues to make it harder to pigeonhole this young, evolving artist.
