I fell in love with Hozier’s first EP when it was released last year and his second EP From Eden has been on heavy rotation in my house for the last couple of weeks. If you loved Take Me To Church you will find more to love on From Eden: “Arsonist’s Lullaby” is filled with foreboding via pounding drums and dirgelike guitars; “To Be Alone” (recorded live) is slow pared-back blues; and the title track is a joyous one with Hozier’s vocals soaring over the top.
Hozier is just back from a small tour of the UK and he’s on tour in the US in May, with his gigs in New York and L.A. already sold out. I didn’t manage to get to see Hozier at Other Voices last year nor did I see him at the Pepper Canister Church before Christmas as it was sold out, so my mission is to get front and centre at a gig this year!
From Eden is available to buy on iTunes now.
