Ewert And The Two Dragons Circles on LP + Download
Despite the impressive journey Ewert And The Two Dragons have already been on, there’s always somewhere new to go. While the four-piece band started playing covers in their native Estonia and have since become a worldwide draw thanks to smart, quirky pop songs and a slew of major awards, in order to make their newest album, Circles, the group went somewhere they’d never been before.
“It was definitely a special process for us,” frontman Ewert Sundja explains. “Our previous two records were quickly recorded in a small Estonian town without any fancy equipment. This time we spent over a month in a studio in the U.S. - and that was a big thing.”
Logging time at Bear Creek Studio wasn’t the only new experience for the group - Sundjan, guitarist Erki Pärnoja, drummer Kristjan Kallas and bassist Ivo Etti - who in 2013 won the European Border Breakers Award. For the first time, the band not only recorded in a studio but wrote their tracks there as well. The band - who’ve been playing together since 2008 - found themselves embracing new sounds and new ways of thinking about music.
"This new album is different than the albums before, while we were recording it seemed like everyone was having the same kind of questions and thinking about the same things and this became a concept for the album," Sundja adds. "Even though we're barely in our thirties, the aging process is the main theme of this album. We all started understanding more about life in general, hence the album title Circles. Everything is turning and we're suddently back in the same place we've been before, wondering about love and life and death and right and wrong."
