David Bowie’s favourite new star was New Zealand’s 19-year-old pop genius Lorde, whom he said sounded like “tomorrow” – and according to Bowie’s pianist Mike Garson, he also called Lorde “the future of music”.
Lorde herself is dishing out the praises these days, on Tuesday (June 14) declaring Irish electro-pop guy EDEN’s new song ‘Sex’ “messy and emotional and twitchy and kind of in love and definitely freaked out as that situation feels.” Calling to mind Lorde’s synaesthesia – the condition that causes her to see colours when she hears music – she added, “It does something very simple and intense to my brain.
“I wasn’t sure how to contact you,” she wrote, “so I went for the old Facebook wall lol. But just wanted to say hi and please keep making lovely things – I’ll listen.”
Ng is a 20-year-old singer/songwriter/producer from Dublin who used to be known as The Eden Project. Now he’s simply called EDEN – and under this new moniker he released his first EP, ‘End Credits’ in August 2015. ‘Sex’ is the first taste of his next one, ‘I Think You Think Too Much Of Me’, due out on August 19.
