Eddie Japan combines ‘60s baroque pop influences with the less restrained tendencies of ‘80s alternative guitar bands to create a soaring, dramatic sound that stands apart from the beats and banjos of today’s indie scene.
Their most recent release, Modern Desperation, Part 1, released in November 2012, is a lush, moody, and musically big throwback of a record that squares off against the times, stylistically and thematically. From the Blue Note-inspired artwork to the grandiose arrangements, the collection is a cinematic journey into the heart of darkness. Look for next EP, Modern Desperation, Part 2, later in 2013.
Eddie Japan are David Santos on lead vocals, Eric Brosius on guitar, Bart LoPiccolo on guitar, Chris Barrett on trumpet and keyboards, Chuck Membrino on bass, Chuck Ferreira on drums and percussion.
