From the outset Eden have retained a unique musical vision driven by the will to value and pursue creative instinct. Eden’s initial 12 inch EP ‘The Light Between Worlds’ was released in 1990 on Nightshift records, Scotland. The EP caught the attention of BBC Radio’s John Peel who featured tracks on his show, resulting in rapid support of Eden by The Alternative Press Magazine in the USA. In 1991 Eden moved to London based label Third Mind who continued to grow the band’s profile in Europe and the USA through release of Eden’s first full length CD ‘Gateway to the Mysteries’ in 1992. The album was described by the music press as sounding akin to ‘the Cocteau Twins had they existed in the 1890s‘. In 1993 Eden joined the roster of Projekt Records, releasing ‘Healingbow’ (1993) and ‘Fire and Rain’ (1995). The same year Eden released a CD of remixes and rarities titled ‘Earthbound’. The ‘Stone Cat’ mini-album was released in 1997.
Eden’s sonic palette crosses a range of genres inclusive of the spaciousness of dream pop, the guitar glissando of shoegaze and the eastern tinged aspect of Neo-psychedelia.
Eden are currently writing and performing new material in venues around Melbourne.
A new recording will be released in 2016.
