Between the light show, the heavily lit instruments and the dance party in the crowd, it's hard to forget an EONS show. Indie electro group EONS is comprised of a trio hailing from Miami, who have been performing all around South Florida. Their debut EP, 'Time & Space', is packed with dance, nu-wave influences and entrancing melodies. Their stage show is constantly evolving, plus their sound is always incorporating new elements. This summer, the group will be releasing a new single. Catching up with lead singer, Johnny Deezal, sheds insight on their upcoming shows, and new music on the horizon:
What does EONS have coming up?
Currently EONS is working on a lot of new material . New songs with different sound elements that we've been craving to have, such as acoustic guitars and tropical world instruments, that's somewhat rare in electronic music. New Singles, music videos, merchandise, and remixes [of] our things we've been putting in motion as well. Our next show is at Will Call in downtown Miami on Friday, June 28th.
Your stage show has decorated instruments. Why did you decide to use this for your show?
Well we recently added more LED strips to our keyboards and drums that our in sync with our songs to add more visual appeal than the average band. There's a lot of great bands out there, so in short we wanted to go a step further and stick out in a way that works well with our spacey vibe.
What other elements do you incorporate into your sound?
Our sound is constantly evolving. We used to use acoustic drums live but now we've been using Roland drum pads incorporated as well, kind of a hybrid acoustic and electronic drum kit. Having analog keyboards such as The Moog little phatty and The Roland Gaia makes a world of difference.
What are you listening to right now?
I gotta say the classics will never die. Micheal Jackson's 'Thriller' is still in constant rotation for me. Sade, Genesis, and U2 are as well. Some newer stuff I've really been digging is Toro Y Moi, and that new Phoenix album ['Bankrupt!'] is sick too.
What would you love to see more in the South Florida music scene?
I guess I'd like to see more unity in general in the South Florida music scene. There's a lot of good artists and bands that are out on their own and I think networking is essential for longevity. Also, more bands and venues would be nice.
