This 7 track EP was independently released and co-produced by the band’s electric guitarist, Dawid Kahts and bassist, Simon Kruger. All the tracks were written by leading lady and acoustic guitarist, ¥aki and she also designed the sleeve. One of the tracks (Very thin line) was partially produced in the U.S.A by Vohnic Studios, Nashville. This makes the E.P. quite diverse and songs deals with topics such as motherhood, feminism, hate and love. It took the band a few years to complete in between the birth of ¥aki’s 2nd child. Sit back and enjoy her unique and beautiful voice accompanied by some world class musicianship and production. Empire of Desire is a mellow music group from the capital City that showcases the talents of three veteran musicians. Featuring the sultry ¥aki on female vocals and song writing, she was the former vocalist for sShhh…, a band that performed for 5 consecutive years from 1997 through 2001 at Oppikoppi as well as doing extensive touring throughout SA. She is joined by established musician Dawid Kahts on lead guitar and backing vocals. Citing eclecticism as his main trademark Dawid has played guitar with numerous acts including Battery 9, Nul, Bacchus Nel as well as a stint in the late George Lee’s African jazz band Anansi. He also fronts his own two projects Thys Nywerheid and The Devil’s ribs. The trio is rounded of by the dynamic bass playing of Simon Kruger. Simon has lent his solid grooves to bands such as sShhh.., die Naaimasjiene, Nothing, the Devil’s ribs and Nul as well as to solo artists Bacchus Nel and Dan Patlansky. The band’s tunes are ethereal, dreamy, edgy and sometimes downright pretty.
