Artist: Eden Warsaw
Eden Warsaw came onto the indie/pop scene with the release of his video for ‘Diamonds’ a while back and then disappeared. ‘Diamonds’ went on to be featured as a top DIY track on blogs and charts internationally – but no other releases followed. It turns out he was hard at work completing his debut album ‘Searching For Someone’ (01/15/2016). A 3 song EP was released in September 2015 to begin the rollout for the album, with songs like ‘Dream of Beaches’ and ‘Hurricane’ gaining traction with listeners and even getting noticed by Alan Cross (A Journal of Musical Things) as “a taste of things to come” from the Toronto artist. The debut album sounds immediately like a classic. It starts off with the catchy title track ‘Searching For Someone’ which is a bit reminiscent of the electronic mix of M83, MGMT and Chvrches. Fans of original sounds and Pop should check out this track as well as some other standouts ‘Lightning Touch’, ‘Medicine’, and ‘Superalfvenic’. There is a wide variety of influence apparent on the debut from the beats on ‘Eternity’ to the EDM mix of ‘Body’ and the more soulful back to back tracks ‘White Fire’ and ‘How Much Further To My Soul’. It’s an exciting debut to say the least and the live show shouldn’t be missed. Eden Warsaw plays at The Drake Underground (1150 Queen St West) @ 8pm on Friday January 29th – it’s a free show. Eden Warsaw is definitely an artist to watch in 2016! Check it out.
