Music Video: Ephemerals - Everyday Killers
Proving that the edification of the soul can be delivered with a brassy groove, U.K. band Ephemerals have over the last few years firmly established themselves as the purveyors of a mindfully observant brand of thoughtfully engaging music-with-a-message. Driven musically by the horn-laden punch of soulfully funky grooves and powered by the graveled soul of singer Wolf Valbrun's passionate vocal delivery, the Ephemerals challenge the listener to look beyond the superficial with insight and empathy courtesy of the band's incisive political and social commentary. The power of their message borne out by airplay on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and BBC Radio 6, along with hitting stages of major festivals like Glastonbury, the Ephemerals are in the process of proving that a groove in the soul can spark questions in the conscience. With a slew of European dates ahead of them in the coming months, the band are back with stark visuals for the staccato piano, funky lick and swelling horns of 'Everyday Killers' call to account of the avarice, complacency and selfishness that drives the economically privileged elites' obliviousness to their role in the suffering of the marginalized masses.
