Recorded in the company of house-trained rabbits on an industrial estate in Cambridge, Daylight Moon, Ezios ninth studio album is their most personal yet. The visceral honesty of frontman Ezio Lunedeis lyrics is laid bare in tracks like Indian, an ode to feeling overcome by forces beyond his control, and Dirty Little Secret, a Nick-Drake-esque ditty where he tries to unpick the emotions of an unnamed muse that he just cant quite suss out.
In their 26-year career, the band have made a habit of dabbling in any style of music that takes their fancy; Daylight Moon is no different. From the crunching blues-rock guitars of Crushed to the jazz rhythms of The Gypsy Song, theres plenty of genre hopping on show here.
Whats always set Ezio apart is the connection between Lunedei and guitarist Booga. The frontmans rich tenor and complex acoustic guitar work is complimented by Boogas incessant lead guitar; regularly squeezing in an extra note that shouldnt be possible, but somehow managing to work. One could try and compare him to other great guitarists, but they would be wasting their time Booga truly has a unique style, and it needs to be witnessed in the flesh.
To celebrate the release of Daylight Moon, Ezio will be touring Germany throughout November and December 2016, and will return to the road again in the spring of 2017 with dates in Britain and Germany. Fans can expect favourites from the new album and classics from Ezios ever-expanding repertoire.
