I have collaborated with indie/psych-pop band EZ Basic for over a decade. Now essentially a solo project from leader Árpád Szarvas, this year I have added cello, mixed and mastered a brand new album, Resonance, released on 14th October 2021.
There is a wonderful new video to accompany one of the best songs on the album. This track features my cello playing. Like the album, the mood and theme of the clip, recorded in early spring, is dreamy nostalgia with alienation – but with a summery feeling, and a longing for a never-before-seen time. But there is also a mild post-apocalyptic undertone, and psychedelic images reminiscent of the ’60s. Partly shot on Super 8 film, the video is directed by photographer Dániel Gaál Here it is:
The latest single is out, the fabulous Next Time, and there’s a “rather weird, ironic, lo-fi, post-apocalyptic/freakshow” video according to Árpád… I think it’s absolutely brilliant!! See what you reckon…!
The album is now out! Hear it on all digital platforms…

Arpi says: “Absolute genius, it turned out fantastic! This was the third time I have worked with George, and just like before, it’s been a fantastic experience. I have really enjoyed his smooth and fast work ethic, and particularly his ability to always nail the overall sound on a first try for the song sketches I had in my mind.”
