With the release of Eldur on May 22, New Zeland alternative rock outfit Coridian mapped out the third instalment of their four-part cycle of albums centring on the elements that comprise the Earth we live in. It is an ambitious undertaking, but one which vocalist Dity Maharaj says fans are embracing with this latest release.
“I guess the main goal with this EP was just to get some good music to people’s earholes”, he laughed, “and reach out a bit more and get a bit more momentum for us, especially internationally. We feel like we’ve reached a bit of a glass ceiling in New Zealand and we want to push out to Australia and other parts of the world”.
In the full interview, Dity talks more about Eldur and the process behind it, the significance of the spelling of the title, where the idea came from to write EP’s based around the elements and why Coridian chose to dedicate whole EP’s to each element rather than combine them on one album, the documentary series the band has released to coincide with new music, breaking the international market and more.
