The ambient, cinematic darkness that the collective creates evokes a powerful atmosphere that will excite superfans & new audiences alike. Alex Lifeson & Andy CurranÕs long-time friendship was the catalyst for the bandÕs inception - but Envy Of None is not defined by its members resumes - they arenÕt Rush or Coney Hatch & far more than the sum of its collective parts.

Above the beautiful cacophony of guitars, synths, bass & drums sits the fragile melodies of 24-year-old vocalist Maiah Wynne - the newest name in Envy Of NoneÕs impressive personnel. Hearing MariahÕs voice intertwined with the music will bring back memories of when you heard Shirley Manson of ÔGarbageÕ or Amy Lee of ÔEvanescenceÕ for the first time. Wynne brings charm & beauty to these recordings in spades - with floating hooks & emotive lyrics transcending the oftentimes textural aesthetic.

The Storm Thorgerson-esque visuals that grace the cover may remind fans of LifesonÕs earlier work - Andy Curran explains: Ò[the] hipgnosis style artwork of albums like ÔPink FloydÕ & ÔLed ZeppelinÕ & others were so eye catching, surreal & attention grabbing & we wanted to scratch that itch. We were instantly drawn to Lebanese photographer Eli Rezkallah at PlastikÕs photography & design work. We fell in love with a bunch of his work - we had a hard time choosing something because he had so many great imagesÓ. However, the 70Õs prog/Rush comparisons may end with the artwork - the music that this ensemble creates treads new ground with each track throughout their 42-minute debut, from industrial/electronic influences on post-progressive soundscapes. Envy Of None create a sound that will haunt, comfort & ignite.

""If you can picture maybe Massive Attack with a little bit of some electronic stuff with Nine Inch Nails influences, with this beautiful, fragile, sweet voice & some very, very dark heavy sounds"" - Andy Curran (Envy Of None)
