“There’s an abundance of strong material on the records, which feature glam tracks, new romantic-style synth-pop, string-enriched ballads, and straight-up rockers. His baritone is reminiscent of David Bowie, Scott Walker, Nick Cave, and, notably, Bryan Ferry, but has its own distinct flavor.” – Dangerous Minds
Since Ensign Broderick made his solo debut with Feast of Panthers in March, the Toronto-based pianist/composer has released three additional full-length albums, including Beauty Nor Ashes, Ranger and Only Love Remains, all available to stream here.
Interrelated and intertwined, these offerings explore concept and process while showing the vast panorama of Ensign Broderick’s influences, from opera to new wave, anime to runway couture, glam rock to desert noir.
Ensign Broderick’s aesthetic — high concept, high art and high fashion – has brought his music into the orbits of many noteworthy collaborators, from auteur filmmaker Guy Maddin to internationally renowned visual artist Kris Knight, and to Winnipeg’s New Music Festival, headlined by Philip Glass.
Only Love Remains is the fourth and final archival album to be released before his new album, Bloodcrush, arrives this fall.
