Good Stuff: The Unusual History of Ether

17 October 2013 by musiclimerick, 1 Comment

FRONTED by Waterford singer/songwriter Rebecca Collins, The Unusual History of Ether is a Copenhagen-based collaboration between Collins and Danish guitarist Mikkel Ploug. The duo along with Jeppe Skovbakke on bass and Jeppe Gram on drums have produced a debut album of jazz influenced charming indie pop.

Since getting together in 2011 the collaboration quickly produced results culminating in the well received debut EP ‘Part One’ and extensive touring including a show in Limerick in 2012. Now the debut LP ‘A Distant Age’ shows the band’s musical palette expanding and developing from months of live work and writing.
The instrumentation is sparse Nordic pop, at times quirky, at times brooding, it is an immaculate backdrop for the warm sultry tones of Rebecca Collins. It is a musical journey from 90’s indie stomper ‘Stop Talking’ to the otherworldly and seductive ‘Just Dust’, the albums highlight.
A lush and adventurous experience in sound, a pop record at heart, ‘A Distant Age’ by The Unusual History of Ether is out now on Ilk and The band play The Grand Social, Dublin October 24.
