The sounds you see on your skin when you breathe in.
Mixing a wide range of influences to produce a left field, lo-fi and emotionally impactful musical view of the world as they see it, Earth Wire create genre-defying music in an attempt to capture the ephemeral through sound, lyric and the soulful drifts of Ella Maby’s vocals.
Rising from a multitude of different creative backgrounds and a history of working together in various incarnations, including the band Delighted Peoples, Earth Wire started as a duo of loop pedalists based on poignant vocals and electric guitar, inspired to demystify the lyrically alive.
Through a mutual appreciation and affinity of ideas they were joined by a rapper and drum machinist and as a four-piece began crafting a unique sound. Over a short period of time they have already made a mark on their local scene, with support slots for internationally-esteemed acts such as Homeboy Sandman, Abdominal, Babar Luck and Strangelove; well-received sets at festivals such as Kelburn Garden Party, Carnival 56 and Audio Soup; and headlining locally-established nights by Too Much Fun Club and Nu Fire. In addition to this Earth Wire were nominated for Best Hip Hop at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards 2015.
Earth Wire have self-produced and self-released a debut single and video for their song ‘In Heaven’. They will be releasing their EP in Summer 2018.
