It holds the enchanted realm of the elves – the Pastel Woods behind the mists, the wizards’ fortified magical city of Valaking with the secret library in the stolen Conch Shell Castle, and the sacred Lotus Cabinet in the Underwater World at the bottom of the sea, guarded and cared for by the seducing sirens. The Galaxy Knight sails the eternal dark oceans of the universe in his star ship, and into the heart of a beautiful galaxy girl lost in space. From this universe all of Ea Philippas music evolves. She puts together the ancient Scandinavian sound with chamber music inspired arrangements for strings, rattling rumbling Tom Waits like beats and intriguing manifold voices over a wide register, with a Björk like temperament and craziness. She created a musical style that doesn’t fit into any of the traditional genres.
Her lyrics are in Danish, and for the foreign ear, it just may sound like a secret language of the elves. Her first and critically praised album “Fjerne Himle” has been described by the Danish press, as “the sound of lovemaking angels” and “a splendid piece of work”. The album was chosen as “Album of the month” in the French radio program Rockomondo, who described it as “one of the best surprises of the year”. The band has played a number of enchanting concerts in some of the greatest historical concert halls in the Denmark, among other places in the Court Theatre and the National Radio building, and reviewers have written that the band play so convincingly amazing that it leads music and mind through a transformation. It is a female ensemble that dares to stand by the womanly power and beauty. That dares to open up and show, what infinitely delicate and strong material they are made of. That wants to reveal the wisdom and mystery that has been sleeping its beauty sleep within the female spheres throughout generations. Ea Philippa is now writing a fantasy novel that takes place in this universe and is already working on her next album. Read more on Last.fm.
