Eyre Llew: The Atelo Interview

This was an interview I did with Nottingham-based band Eyre Llew for their upcoming album Atelo. Sadly the interview itself never saw the light of day so for all those who’re fans of the funky trio, have a read and enjoy.

How long did you work on this album?
We wrote, recorded and produced it over 2 years around touring and playing festivals around Europe
What can we expect?
It’s dynamic with ambient soundscapes and sing-along chorus. We’re really proud of it with parts recorded all over the UK
Are there any tracks to listen out for?
We’ve released two singles from it so far, Atelo and Havoc. They were released with videos from our album video series that were shot in Norway and the Gran Canaria.
What sort of album is it, sound-wise?
We’re often labelled as a post-rock/indie band. That’s definitely where our influences are.
Inspirations for the album?
We’ve got fancy pedal boards so we love reverbs and delays. Artists such as Noah Gunderson, Bon Iver, Sigur Ros and A Winged Victory for The Sullen.
Who did you collaborate with in the making?
No one. We self-produced the album. Though we did have a group vocal recording for our fans at the studio.
What are you calling the album?
The album is called Atelo.
Looking forward to touring with it?
Yes definitely, S. Korea, nine countries around Europe, UK tours and an album launch show at Rescue Rooms, Nottingham on November 10th.
How much interest has been raised?
We’ve been touring around Europe for two years now, playing festivals all over. The response has been wonderful, it’s great to get over our first album to our patient fans.
Any possible future collaborations?
Not sure yet, but we’re open to ideas.
