State Magazine has published a new in-depth article about Ergodos, with a special focus on Ergodos Musicians’ I Call to You. Written by Niall Crumlish, the article includes interviews with Ergodos founders Garrett Sholdice and Benedict Schlepper-Connolly as well as Seán Mac Erlaine, Kate Ellis, Michael McHale and Donnacha Dennehy. ‘Ergodos … exemplifies an attitude that is joyously present in new Irish music: that the spirit of the music, rather than the strictures of style, is what matters,’ writes Crumlish. ‘So, they release a Bach album and a Séan Mac Erlaine album; Mac Erlaine plays in This Is How We Fly with Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh; Caoimhín works both with Peadar Ó Riada, of Cúil Aodha, and Doveman, who produces the albums of half of hipster New York. And we get from 400-year old German baroque to Séan Ó Riada or David Byrne in about four moves, and seamlessly; without even blinking. This, I would suggest, is the genius of new Irish music.’
