South African prog prodigy Robyn Ferguson has just announced her new EP, Harbinger, will be released on August 1.
Harbinger is a two-track satellite EP narrowly following the release of May’s Falling Forward.
Ferguson said it is a micro journey of a parallel timeline showing the complexities of choice and choosing.
“For every decision we make there’s another sheared off, launched to the parallel unknown.
“A consciousness lost and found in the siamese complexity of cause and effect.”
Inspired, written and recorded in isolation, Harbinger speaks of the alternative path, and calls to the “what if” in us all.
Ferguson is a passionate musician from South Africa who knows how to work hard and play hard.
Known for her dynamic live performances and adept guitar skills with acts like Adorned in Ash and Sistas of Metal, she has been flying solo the past two years with three releases now under her belt.
The last year has not been easy for her, and her Harbinger follows close on the heels of her hugely successful debut EP Alizarin and sophomore EP Falling Forward in her mental, emotional and spiritual journey to rise above health challenges.
“There were many challenges faced and some that are still being faced.
“I am happy to say that, despite all these battles and still having some nerve damage and paralysis in parts of my body, (like 3 of the 5 fingers on my left hand), the creation of this album has been so liberating and exciting.
“This past year has completely kicked me into a different frame of mind and I’ve found myself looking at the world through a different lens.
“This year has pushed and pulled me like no other and I hope that this record will bring hope to those who are facing their own battles and inner demons.”
