Yomi Ship, the 3-piece progressive instrumental rock band hailing from Perth, WA, takes listeners on a captivating journey with their first single, “The Izoku,” from their upcoming album, “Feast Eternal.” Comprising Jarred Osborne on guitar, Jade Champion on bass, and Nick Osborne on drums, the band’s music is a mesmerizing blend of atmospheres and sonic landscapes.
“The Izoku” unfolds with an immersive musical tapestry. It begins with a dreamlike quality. Atmospheric music and slow-paced drums introduce the listener to a realm of sonic enchantment. The enigmatic elements interweave harmoniously, creating a captivating and mellifluous soundscape. As the song progresses, it steadily builds in intensity, with crashing drums breaking through. They add a dynamic layer to the composition. This ebb and flow of intensity and restraint give the music an absorbing and hypnotic effect.
“The Izoku” boasts impeccable production quality with Ron Pollard of Tangled Thoughts of Leaving behind the recording. It was done so, at Studio Sleepwalkers Dread. Christian Benavides’ artwork and Arturo Baston’s animated music video showcase the band’s global creative collaboration.
Coming from ancient folklore and fantasy, the Izoku are shadowy monsters that inhabit the mythical city of Agartha, underneath the earth’s surface. They are cross-referencing their own literature from their 2021 EP, “Of Agartha.”
While you engage yourself to the depth of “The Izoku,” you may also look forward to their debut album in the meantime. And definitely don’t forget to mark your calendars for Yomi Ship’s Australia tour this October. They will be sharing the stage with prog/math rockers SEIMS and supporting Delta Sleep’s (UK) first Australian tour.
