“I think success is not a place you get to but move in and out of all the time.” Marcus Eyemouth – Sweden @Eyemouthmusic
Marcus Joakim & Tove David – Eyemouth released their debut EP, Black and Blue Latitudes, in march this year. The music has its foundation in electronica, with mellotron and organic elements like vibraphone, santur, accordion and piano. Both music and lyrics has a dark undertone, and the songs are dealing with thematics such as inside conflicts and a yearning to accept your past instead of repressing it. Eyemouth is from Gothenburg, Sweden, and have several members from the electro/synthband Estrange.
I guess it started before I was aware of it. As a child I never found what I thought I was supposed to find. And I think that created a loss inside of me which I later became to express through music. But there was always a lot of music in my home. I grew up in a christian home and my father used to sing in the church. So I have always had some kind of religious connection to music.
is called Black and Blue Latitudes and the songs very much reflect the mental states I’ve had most of my life. I seem to often use nature, soil, and the earth as a mirror to my body and mind. For me the songs have been necessary to write and produce. Without them I don’t know how I would have managed. This is the first EP in a series of four and all four cover about the same subject.

I live in Gothenburg, on the westcoast of Sweden. Its the second largest city but still a small one. We have a couple of really good places with fine music. One is called Truck stop Alaska where I latest listened to Jarboe and Alexander Hacke. Koloni is a really good place arranging shows with artists I listen to like Nadja and Baby Dee. I’ve seen Swans at a place called Pustervik and later this spring they will come to Sticky Fingers. Yet another good place is Nefertiti where I saw Genesis P-Orridge last year.
More modules in my modular rack, haha. I think success is not a place you get to but move in and out of all the time. But I also think it’s having yourself make the changes in your life that brings peace to your existing.
