Eyot: Similarity

Read "Similarity" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Atmosphere. That oft-indefinable feel that music can have, the creation of a mood or a sensation that inveigles itself into a listener's mind and captures the imagination. It's not melody, harmony or rhythm but it needs all three. Eyot--a four-piece from Serbia--has a great line in atmosphere, ably demonstrated on the band's third album, Similarity.

Navan, Ireland
September 20, 2013

That Magnus Öström's quartet made it to Navan at all was good going given that the band's previous gig had been on a Scottish island boasting no fewer than eight whisky distilleries. The Scottish--as the quartet discovered--take their whisky and their hospitality seriously. That ...

Eyot: Drifters

Read "Drifters" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Quartetto serbo nato nel 2008 e qui al suo secondo album (dopo Horizon, 2010), Eyot pratica una musica (un sound, ma non solo) del tipo che sembra (voler) essere già nell'orecchio di chi ascolta ancora prima che ciò avvenga. L'iniziale “She Is Dreaming of a Better Day," per la verità, non è neanche male, con un ...

Eyot: Drifters

Read "Drifters" reviewed by Ian Patterson

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 ...

EYOT: Horizon

Read "Horizon" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Formed in 2008 by pianist and composer Dejan Ilijic, EYOT creates a distinctive and rather beautiful sound based on a mix of jazz, prog rock and contemporary classical influences. The Serbian quartet's debut, Horizon, recorded in November 2009, is a collection of nine Ilijic tunes, showcasing his sparse and surprisingly delicate approach to composition.
