Imaad Wasif (vox, guitar), Josh Garza (drums) and Tom Biller (bass) lay down the thunderous beats, snarling riffs and dreamy psychedelia that make up EFG.
At the heart of their new EP, Thru the Future, is a primitivism and warmth that make it the most evolved of all their music to date. Songs are black around the eyes and rough around the edges, with Wasif as their narrator, white-knuckling their vehicle straight off a cliff.
Songs were formed in Tom Biller’s WPO studio from fragments of lyrics, snarling riffs and motorik beats; experimentation gone positively awry and thrown into alchemy with all sorts of Spiritus Sanctus.
“We ended up with waves of wonder, ecstatic truths and mutilation.” Tom Biller (bass)
The band play their instruments fiercely, with a connection that reveals a complex relationship fueled as much by cohesion as discord. They may use traditional musical instruments but other sounds are clearly generated by instruments pushed beyond conventionality.
“EFG has NYC Dream House blood, a psychedelic spine and a kraut/japrock pulse.” Josh Garza (drums)
