Labyrinth Ear (Emily Jacobs and Tom Evans) formed in the summer of 2010 in New Cross, South East London. Their most recent album, the Oak EP (available as a free download from their website), features songs that range from great '80s retro to straight-up dance. It earned them incredible critical praise, and saw Labyrinth Ear become one of the “most blogged” artists on Hype Machine.
The duo has recently reworked the late Arthur Russell's This is How We Walk On the Moon which they have shortened to Walk on the Moon. The entirety of the 1994 cello- and horn-driven original remains, including the strings and Russell's vocals. Labyrinth Ear added soft female vocals, a steady-but-not-overpowering beat, and some playful keys.
