Ewert and the Two Dragons - (In the End) There’s Only Love
Estonia! You gave me Skype and now Ewert and the Two Dragons? You shouldn’t have but I’m so glad you did.
I discovered this band in an article that described them as “the crown jewel of Estonian rock,” which (unfairly) made me laugh so hard I snorted. And I don’t know what I expected from this quartet but every song I’ve listened to by Ewert and the Two Dragons has blown me away. There’s the evocative and complex lyrics, the melancholy instrument combinations, the sweet melodies that sometimes border on acoustic.
Their song plays off of different genres of alternative, folk, country, etc. And while “Good Man Down,” the title song of their second album, is more well known “(In the End) There’s Only Love” is the one that immediately got stuck in my head.
Ewert Sundja, the lead singer, speaks impeccable English but with the undertones of an Estonian accent, I like what it does for his voice. It helps to distinguish Ewert (and the Two Dragons) from a lot of other indie folk-rock.
This band has been busy. While they’ve only been together a little over 3 years and have released two albums (each song is was written and produced by the band members). Their next album is currently being recorded and their first North American tour dates start next month in Canada!
