Eddy (New Music 2016) 

Two drummers plus zero inhibitions equals total wacky freedom.

"It was like, why don't we just get two drum kits and beat the shit out of them?" says Nick Dourado (XXVII, Century Egg) on the formation of EDDY. With drummer Nathan Doucet (Heaven for Real), EDDY is an experimental drum duo that pummels listeners with continuous, spontaneous and completely uninhibited music. In December, the pair released recordings by Tri Le called Malk, but they're only a slight representation of the live experience that EDDY creates. "The noise is constant, the vibe is so intense, we all get hypnotized, like zipped," says Dourado. It's something that the two musicians have wanted to do for a long time—a chance at total freedom. They plan to release a new album soon. "In the moment, it's whatever we fucking want," says Doucet. "It's wacky as fuck. It's industrial, it's atonal and dark, it's like death metal. It's my true heart, for sure."
