Following A Dynamic Pistoia Festival Appearance, Eil Marchini Returns With ‘The River’
Following his triumphant appearance at Pistoia Blues Festival, appearing on the line up alongside the likes of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Black Stone Cherry and 30 Seconds To Mars, Eil Marchini has returned with a Blues/ Country Rock fuelled new single, The River!
After the atmospheric 50 second intro Marchini’s sensational slide guitar playing stands out on the new single, riffing effortlessly over a driving, rolling country rock beat. With tasty guitar licks that Stevie Ray Vaughn or Derek Trucks would be proud of, the 12-bar blues nature of the track manages to feel current with top level production and a Black Keys-esque vocal line.
With guitarists like Jimi Hendrix and John Frusciante as inspirations you’d expect a virtuoso musician and that’s exactly what you get with Eil Marchini – a maverick artist who excels at combining the very best musicianship with an unbridled talent and expertise for presenting it in endlessly fascinating new ways. Not allowing himself to be constrained by fitting into a genre, Eil flits between making atmospheric electronic and country with absolute ease.
Born in Italy, Eil Marchini has spent much of his life travelling the world, on a mystic mission to experience the sights and sounds of everywhere he visits, ready to mould them into the bewildering sonic creatures on both his first album, Smile, before releasing the atmospheric Magpies on Acid and now returning with more new material.
Having just completed a tour supporting Alt-Country/Paisley Underground pioneers, The Long Ryders, Eil Marchini is essential listening for anyone with a passion for guitar, electronica, soundscapes, folk, psychedelia…in fact, for anyone who demands the music they listen to challenges them and transports them to worlds they never even knew they wanted to visit.
