Sydney inner west duo’s (Scout Eastment and Olive Rush) alt-rock-pop project, EGOISM, captures the vibrance of our deepest innocence and perpetuates its shimmer onto the sheet of sonic waves.
Off of EP ‘On Our Minds’, ‘Happy’ is such a direct assault on the grunge-vibes of the 90’s, as its supple and genuine aura cast the most urging and lovable attitudes.
Stated the duo: “The songs on this EP were started in 2019 and finished in 2020, it was a rough fucking year. The world seemed to be doing ok, but everything inside us was disintegrating. Weird how 2020 has been the opposite, where the world is going insane but personally we’re doing pretty ok. We’re both kinda obsessed with feelings that run too deep to be summed up only with words. Sometimes music is what’s missing to explain the seemingly unexplainable. But anyway, that’s where On Our Minds comes from; a desperate attempt to share that sad little world, buzzing on internally.”
The On Our Minds EP was written, recorded and produced by the duo in their bedrooms, mixed by Matthew Neighbour (The Avalanches, Matt Corby, Sky Ferreira) and funded by the triple j Level Up Grant.
Keep the duo in your sights.
