White Hinterland Eidolon Digital EP Available Now On Bandcamp, Tour Kicks Off Sunday!

COVER3v3

Eidolon is an Ancient Greek term that means “human shadow,” or spiritual double, of a living being. Fitting, then, that White Hinterland’s Eidolon EP serve as a companion piece to Kairos, the stunning full-length released in March from this Portland group.

Collected and curated over the course of 2010, the songs found on Eidolon reflect the very spirit of White Hinterland in that there is never a single definitive version of a song. They are written to be flexible and stretch in all directions. It’s a gorgeous marriage of post-dupstep, airy art-pop and chilled, personal R&B.
