EWAH“Cannibals” is a menacing, dark and heavy new single from Hobart, Tasmania-based  band EWAH & The Vision of Paradise. It’s a glorious development of the epic, cinematic sound of their 2017 debut album “Everything Fades to Blue”.

“Cannibals” seems to be about humankind’s self-destructive inclinations.  The walking pace song is built on a Stranglers-styled bass line, but it’s the monumental growling, sizzling guitar and organ stabs that provide the menacing atmosphere for Emma Waters’ vocals to cast their spell over.  The ending of the song is particularly majestic, Waters’ incantation over a wall of noise channeling the same kind of dark intensity of PopLib’s favourite Leeds’ trio Drahla.
