We’ve an enchanting Song Premiere to share with you today from Dutch based artist iET. As She Moved features on her new EP ‘Inhale’ due for release on May 6th 2016.
On Inhale iET fashions her enchanting songs with a collection of vintage instruments, most of which have been in her or her families possession for most of her life. Her very first guitar, trumpet, a double bass inherited from her uncle Sas and a recently acquired Schimmel: an upright piano dating back to 1930 (featured on Love is Love) are all employed to bring this unique album to life. Though iET never played the piano before she had an instant resonance with the instrument, resulting in many piano songs which will be featured on her upcoming full length album. iET recorded all the songs in her own studio with a collection of vintage microphones, preamps and effects gathered by Budy, adding a wealth of warmth to her sound.
Inhale is iET’s first release after the full length psychedelic soul album So Unreal, which was a joint venture with New York based Grammy award winning engineer/producer Russell Elevado (D’Angelo, Erykah Badu). With Inhale iET set off for a more alternative, intimate and direct sound, playing most of the instruments herself and sculpting the soundscapes with her soulmate Budy Mokoginta. Russ Elevado, an established grand master of sound, praised the authentic and wide ranged vocals of iET, her adventurous compositions, her ability to shape her sound with many different instruments, but most of all her capacity to touch the heart of her listeners with honesty and purity, turning her music in, as Russ would say, a true and valid piece of art.
The EP contains three new mesmerizing songs, one of them featuring Dutch fellow artist and good friend Pink Oculus. The EP will be released worldwide digitally through Spotify, iTunes and most other streaming media.
iET’s next full length album is already in the making and is anticipated to be released September 2016
