EYOT

”This is just simply quite stunning.” / Mike Chadwick - SoulandJazz.com - Snarky Puppy's manager

“ electro jazz rock fusion - you name it they play it - full of energy and invention - a top class act ..” Tim Dickeson, Jazzwise

“a future-minded, exciting collision of various genres creating happening music –” Gilles Quinnell / PIAS Harmonia Mundi World Village

“It's every serious group's desire to craft an identifiable, and as far as possible, a unique sound whereby just a few notes leave little doubt about who's playing. Serbian quartet Eyot achieved that with its splendid debut, Horizon (Ninety and Nine Records,2011), where minimalism and power went hand-in-hand in an intoxicating mix of jazz, art-rock, classical and Balkan folk melodies. Drifters largely follows the same blueprint, though there is perhaps greater density in the group's sound (…) It doesn't take too great a leap of imagination to see the power of Eyot in concert. That fact Eyot has played jazz, punk and rock festivals, as well as in Cultural Centers, says something about the special chemistry of the diverse musical elements that makes Drifters such a rewarding experience and a fine follow-up to its debut. A band to watch out for.” Ian Paterson @ http://www.allaboutjazz.com

“Eyot's music has a flow, a forward motion, that suggests the band is constantly attempting to extend its musical horizon. It's a feeling that was already present on Eyot's debut release, called Horizon (Ninety And Nine Records, 2011), but the fuller sound to be found on Similarity accentuates it and gives it added urgency. These are exciting times for Eyot.” Bruce Lindsay @ http://www.allaboutjazz.com/

”There was a real force behind them, driving like a battering ram at times, it swept to and fro, with a rhythm that was reflected in their final tune's Balkan beat. It was modern medieval jazz, raw and uncut in the main with flashes of sophisticated beauty, like being transfixed by the hidden complexities of a gargoyle whilst standing in the shadow of a gothic cathedral. Wonder and darkness.”

Alban Low,artofjazz.blogspot.co.uk/ ( London Jazz Café gig review )

“Eyot is however on to an amazing fresh sound and approach to a more contemporary sound that could be the next big thing here in the States
