Pablo Euphoria has recorded a debut EP

Local musician Pablo Euphoria releasing debut EP Give in to Sin

Pablo Euphoria has given in to sin. Or at least that’s what he’s telling you to do with his debut EP Give in to Sin.

Pablo Euphoria has given in to sin. Or at least that’s what he’s telling you to do with his debut EP Give in to Sin.

The musician, songwriter, and jam night host at The Golden Taps has come out of the studio with a four-track album of original songs with the help of as many local musicians as possible.

“I’ve been playing jam nights with some of these guys for a long time,” said Euphoria. “We’ve developed a really good chemistry.”

That is part of the reason he was able to make the recording process as simple and organic as possible. The musicians play together so often that no metronome was used.

“I wanted it to feel very real and raw. A metronome makes it sound so fake sometimes.”

All four tracks are originals written by Euphoria, and through all four you can find a central theme of inner turmoil, and struggling with the question: am I crazy? He finds that music doesn’t often approach those issues in a straight forward way.

With influences like Pink Floyd and The Beatles, and elements from genres as diverse as reggae and gypsy music, Euphoria has a hard time explaining his record’s sound.

“I don’t really know what it is,” he said. “What I wanted was to have an album that flowed from beginning to end…and I wanted to talk about topics that are usually ignored. Mental struggles like drugs, addiction, schizophrenia, that sort of thing.”

But most of all what he wanted was to capture the essence of Golden. That is why he started recording the sounds of the community before he got into the studio…sounds like the trains coming through, or the rushing water of the rivers, all of which you can hear in the album if you listen closely enough.

Although Golden has influenced him tremendously, Euphoria will be heading out on an impromptu tour, and letting life take him where it may from there.

He will be hosting jam night at The Taps on Thursday Apr. 20 (at an earlier time of 9 p.m.), and will hopefully have copies of Give in to Sin ready to go.

“It will be a sort of informal CD release party,” he said.
