Eve Essex – Room With A View

Eve Essex by Alice Plati

The Fabulous Truth is an homage to the anti-hero — an eight song suite that explores moral ambiguities, life in the shadows, and the possibility of escape from social expectations. The second full-length album by composer and multi-instrumentalist Eve Essex, The Fabulous Truth is both an ecstatic paean to liberty and an intense look at the psychological prices paid for seeking independence in an unforgiving world.

Drawing on influences as diverse as trip-hop, outlaw country, kosmische, spiritual jazz, avant-garde classical, and—yes—musical theater, Essex sets jewel-like portraits of rebellion against a velvet-black background of stormy electronics and uneasy minimalism.

The Fabulous Truth

The Fabulous Truth album is set for a June 21st release via Soap Library in digital, cassette, and LP formats — a first for the label. Cassettes are accompanied by an embroidered patch that mirrors James JA Mercer’s cover artwork.

Following the release of title track “The Fabulous Truth,” today Essex shares the new single and video “Room With A View” alongside the announcement of a slate of summer tour dates. The haunting, elegiac new single is brilliantly brought to life by Andy Cahill in the accompanying animated video as well.
