Producer, singer, songwriter, and boundary-‐breaking artist Ebony Bones— whose stage name was coined by punk icon Rat Scabies, drummer of The Damned— developed a love for music at an early age.
Spending time in her father’s music stall in Brixton Market, her musical education began.
Informed by producers like Brian Eno and Quincy Jones, her influences grew to include everyone from Siouxie Soux, PiL and The Slits to Public Enemy and Fela Kuti.. Armed with her own mature and captivating sound
and a strong DIY ethic, Ebony’s sophomore album, Behold, A Pale Horse, will be released in August via 1984 Records.
Behold, A Pale Horse is divided into Parts I and II– Born In Flames and When The Battle’s Lost & Won.
Part I opens with the album’s striking title track, which features harmonious chants along with deep, bellowing apocalyptic strings from members of the Symphony Orchestra of India accompanied by frenzied drums.
“Mystery Babylon Balloon” is characterized by male chants and Ebony’s fearless vocals, while “While The People S.L.E.E.P” reunites Ebony Bones with her signature anthemic charisma, accentuated by quick-‐paced, melodic verses and a tribal beat that will attract listeners from all divisions of the musical spectrum.
Part II features the stunning dark ballad I.N.V.I.N.C.I.B.L.E and instrumental “Bread & Circus”, with a prominent guitar melody accompanied by handclaps and cowbell. Ebony Bones’ music is fearless and Behold, A Pale Horse is set to galvanize listeners from all over the musical spectrum.
