Swedish electro-pop trio Ember Island have begun to roll out their new EP by unveiling the magical, intangible place that is Ember Island, which they’ve created through music and self made videos. Ember Island is more than a band, and more than the music, it’s a place where people can escape reality. The first offering from the EP is a video for “Stay” & “Need You,” both wondrous and emotionally charged ballad style songs. The accompanying video features a child running free to the edges of the whimsical island.
Each video in the EP will introduce new environments and magical corners of the island. In addition to the videos, Ember Island will soon release map detailing the geography of their island. As more music is released, more of the map will be available to explore on the website.
Ember Island have begun to make a name for themselves with their enchanting covers of well known tracks. Their catalogue of covers is eclectic, with their most recent cover of Rihanna’s iconic “Umbrella,” Radiohead’s legendary “Creep,” Jack Ü and Justin Bieber’s hit “Where Are Ü Now,” The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” and Porter Robinson’s emotional dance ballad “Sad Machine.” Just this week Eva Igo danced to Ember Island’s version of “Creep” on the NBC show ‘World Of Dance” – watch on NBC andYouTube. As the band releases more original music, it is clear that their talents expands far beyond the covers they are known for.
