Recently Remixed a track I produced for Edi back in 2012, The Quickening. The track features on this years JJJ UnEarth Awards: Check it out here –
Edi Donald and the Transients are 6 piece band from Alice Springs, that formed late last year to bring the songs from Edi’s EP “The Endless Shores of the Inland Sea” to the stage.
With a wild arc of influences from gritty alternative markings to a lashing of operatic theatricality, from delicately woven electronic production to acoustic and folk world roots, the music of Edi Donald and the Transients carries a trans-genre cinematic epic-ness and that irrevocable quality of music both of and outside it’s time. Edi is a rugged song-smith whose stunningly emotive voice and vivid lyricism embodies androgyny in the most unexpected combination fiercely and intentionally defying definition. As a result, Edi will always create the unexpected through their music and vision as an artist.
