Artist Exposed: An Emerald City

The series of Artist Exposed for the ZXZW 2009 fest, highlights the artists you definitely do not want to miss! Click the tag Artist Exposed for more posts!

An Emerald City will play Sunday 20 September.

Emerald is a green and not very hard stone. Not the preferred material when you want to build a city, you would think. Nevertheless are there at least ten cities on the globe that have Emerald City as a nickname. Maybe it has something to do with other qualities this gem possesses: it is beautiful and mysterious.

Those qualities can also be found in the music of the band An Emerald City hailing from New Zealand. Melting oriental melodies with trance-like post rock structures, An Emerald City creates a flying carpet of sound that takes you right into a mythical Arab city and lets you fly around minarets and over the head of snake-charmers in the streets.  Fly into that dreamy wonderland you always thought only theme-parks could create.

On their MySpace you can download some songs for free.

See you in September!
