Ephrata is the debut album from Irish singer-songwriter Joshua Burnside. Written in a burst of a few weeks whilst living in northern Colombia, the record covers a diverse range of themes, asking the larger questions about time, love and death in the modern age.
Balanced with a diverse palette of sounds, Burnside deftly blends alt-folk with South American rhythms and Eastern European influences, while introducing synthetic and found-sounds, synths loops and crunching beats to create a stormy world.
