EDEN – drugs (official video)

Hailing from Dublin, 20-year-old vocalist/producer/multi-instrumentalist EDEN releases his much anticipated EP i think you think too much of me today via Astralwerks. The EP is now available at all digital partners as well as in a variety of exclusive physical packages from EDEN’s store.  EDEN premiered the video for his latest track “drugs” yesterday on Pigeons & Planes. “It’s not that I wrote the song about this specific storyline, but the idea that things in your life really only mean as much as you let them connects the visuals with the track and the EP in a powerful way. You can watch the video with an outcome in your mind but things are never quite as simple or straightforward as they seem,” says EDEN.

In the early stages of finding his voice as an artist EDEN, otherwise known as Jonathan Ng, made only one rule for himself, “make something you’d be proud of even if no one ever hears it.” With his new EP, he channels that passion for innovation into a guitar-heavy take on electronic pop and proves himself an artist of uncompromising originality. On ‘I think you think too much of me’, his raw emotionality imbues the heartsick urgency on “sex,” the woozy desperation on “drugs,” and stark fragility on “and.” On “rock & roll,” EDEN brilliantly merges jagged guitar riffs, heady beats, and feverish meditations on ambition or lack thereof (“I got ten weeks of talking bullshit on repeat ‘til I’m burnt out and disappear”), before the song sweetly dissolves into distorted movie dialogue.
