Eyot

With more than a hundred concerts in 18 countries around the world, and great reception from both critics and the audience, EYOT stands out as one of the most interesting bands coming out from Europe in the last decade. Free of genres, EYOT brings a beautiful eclectic sound that swims from rock to jazz, punk and ambient, impressionism to romanticism, all formed into strong compositions. Their live performances are filled with energy and emotions that bring the listener deep into their personal world and create a unique experience.

*Winners of the Umbria Jazz Balkanic Windows competition 2009 and MIDEM OFF Showcase 2012 (Cannes, France)
“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, ALL ABOUT JAZZ ( Drifters review )

“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. (...) A perfect mix of the old and the new forming a new sonic alliance for a new generation.”

Brent Black, Criticaljazz.com

“Original and inventive”
