Erik and the savages of the world
There’s nothing metaphorical about Erik Mut naming his latest EP Escape!
Mut has been an expat since 2008, when he left his home in Toronto and first settled with his band in London and Belgrade, Serbia. After an excruciating run of over 250 gigs across Europe, Mut decided to launch Support Adventure, a company that gives remote jobs to expats and digital nomads, with now over 160 staff living in over 20 different countries, creating a trade event. of his group’s message on transculturalism.
Through the six tracks on Escape!, Mut explains the reasons for his departure from his home and his life as an expat elsewhere in the world while storing it with the same musical diversity. You can find almost anything here, from punk and Balkan folk to world music and heavy metal, basically anything that tickled Mut’s musical fancy.
His vocals and lyrical concept have definite touchpoints with Brooklyn collective Gogol Bordello with the same biting enthusiasm and commentary, quite well supported by the musicians involved in the project.
Mut obviously assimilated quite a lot of world music influences and he did it very well, delivering an interesting musical combination with merit.
