EGOPUSHER


EGOPUSHER band is fromSwitzerland .Contrast and contradiction are at the very core of EGOPUSHER, anunlikely but magical amalgam of lyrical and yet somehow obstreperous violin,and earthy drum sound. At first,the twomusicians have very dif- ferent musical background. Ever since their pathscrossed, Switzerland has been gifted with a fabulously playful and radical newband unafraid to tease, provoke and shock.

Over the course of several months, they recorded aseries of improvisations on violin and drums, adding touches of synth and basslater on. In this way they created a kind of diary, capturing and observing thesuccesses and failures alike of their interplay. Several months later, they satdown to listen to these basement diaries and to decide which of the entriesdeserved to be developed into a song. This survival of the fittest strategyperfectly fits the curious word creation that is the band name, EGOPUSHER: Digdeep inside for the best in you, bring it out and polish it until the sparksfly.
