Experimental Electronic, (NZ)
Earl Green is the combination of two old friends, Toby Leman (HUMMUCIDE, Revulva, General Vibe), and Jazz Kane (Comf). They have been making music together for nearly two years, in which time they have made an album and an EP. As a composer and member of HUMMUCIDE, Toby wanted a second avenue through which to write music in a more specific musical context, although many of the influences are consistent across both projects. The aim of the project is to create multi-layered, multi-genre, hypnotic and experimental music which rely on computer specific techniques. Then this process involves Jazz's intricate and chaotic production wizardry which creates a project that speaks to both's strengths.
Earl Green released their debut album “Man Eating Man” toward the end of last year, and their latest release “In the Laundromat EP” demonstrates a new level of synergy and understanding of each other’s musical strengths. A project that is as fun as it is striking, the music video for “In the Laundromat” premiered on RNZ Music in August of this year and with a live set including vocals, synths, saxophones and more, Earl Green are sure to keep everybody guessing.
Earl Green’s live show combines colourful visuals with layered drum loops, saxophone, vocals, and synthesiser. Toby and Jazz flow effortlessly between the tracks and each take a hand at synths and mixing.
