The mind bending, soulfully electro, punk house-pop of Ediblehead is the culmination of a transformative journey for two musicians: the prodigiously multitalented chanteuse Eva Zeva, the critically acclaimed Los Angeleno artist Robby Rockit. The winding path to forming Ediblehead helped both musicians connect to the wellspring of their creativity. The result is infectiously the catchy debut album, Animal Lick Stick.
Robby Rockit was the founding member of the lauded space rock band West Indian Girl, which was signed to tastemaking electronic and dance label Astralwerks (Primal Scream, Chemical Brothers, Hot Chip). Eva Zeva was a lifelong singer who kept her vocal talents tucked behind a veil of shyness while she explored fashion as well as fine arts. They met at a private party gig West Indian Girl was playing in L.A., and Rockit felt an immediate karmic connection with Eva. The two found themselves reinventing West Indian Girl for that group’s third and final album Shangri La.
Ediblehead was formed to bring music that is bright, vivacious, and playfully dynamic. “There is a childlike energy that informs what we do, it’s about letting go and having fun,” describes Eva Zeva. She and Rockit lead us through the twelve tracks on Animal Lick Stick as zany toastmasters with a multitude of techno genres, crazy pop hooks, and guitars meshed with electronica. The album was engineered, produced, and mixed by mastermind Robby at his home studio in Los Angeles, with additional work done at the West Hollywood studio of esteemed producer Matt Sorum (Guns and Roses, Velvet Revolver, The Cult), assisted by producer/engineer Francis O’ Reilly.
Ediblehead performs as a fivepiece band with full visual effects and original, out-of-this world costuming to mesmerize fans. “Ediblehead is like a beat infused candy colored rainbow with a message of self belief.” says Robby Rockit. “If you let go of fear and doubt, all doors will open up.” Eva agrees as she looks at how far they have come “There’s a childlike energy that informs what we do, it’s about letting go and having fun,” says Eva.
