Eoins ́ Rites, debut album by the frontman of the now gone Estonian post-punk band lack of Eoins, is due for release on 19th March 2018 on pioneering indie label Seksound, run by members of cult dreampop Estonian band Pia Fraus. The new eclectic album features songs in various genres characterized by restless rhythmic and harmonic convolution.
Deriving influences from post-punk and folk to bedroom electronica, Eoins makes use of a broad range of musical characters and professional capabilities while remaining true to the lo-fi/ everyday aesthetics of its earlier days as lack of Eoins. Lack of Eoins was once a four-piece indie punk band, gathered in 2005. A couple of years later their demos had caught the eye of some of the local music enthusiasts eventually leading to debut album Echo Group released by Seksound in 2009. The band concept slowly faded away from there on, but the lead singer and songwriter Madis Järvekülg kept experimenting and improvising with electronics, samples and vocals at home.
The album has been recorded over a three-year period with the help of sound engineer and producer Martin Kikas.
