Eden is an Irish synthpop band that burst onto the music scene in 1998, offering a refreshing alternative to the clutter conveyor belt pop music that was dominating the charts at the time. The duo is made up of Ian Henderson and Mark Power. The band quickly gained recognition after appearing on RTÉ's 2fm Beat On The Street tour and supporting Boyzone on their UK and Ireland tour.
Despite their early success, Eden was determined to carve out their own path in the industry, and they spent the following years touring across Europe, playing to crowds of 100,000 at Berlin's Brandenburg Gate and 80,000 in Munich at the CSD day festival to name but a few. The single "Let it Flow" became the most requested song on WDR2 in Germany in 2002, beating off competition from U2 and Westlife.
In 2006, Eden released their debut album, "Desolate Shores," which showcased their unique blend of synthpop and powerful melodies. The album was well-received by critics and audiences alike, solidifying their reputation as a band with a distinct identity and strong creative vision.
Following the success of "Desolate Shores," Eden returned to Ireland to work on their second album, "Electric!," which was released in 2011. The album featured four singles that were packed with personality and emotion, and it received glowing reviews from critics.
After a short hiatus, Eden released their third album, "Outbound to Wonderland," which showcased their signature synthpop sound and strong songwriting skills. The album received more solid reviews, with nods to the singles "Don’t Wanna Lose You," "Good as Gold," "Outbound to Wonderland," and "A Heart Keeps Beating."
In 2017, a play called "The Paradise" showcased Eden's back catalogue, featuring songs from the band spanning their career to date to glowing reviews.
Eden celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2018 by re-releasing their first single, "Only Lovers Do," and the album "EDEN-THE SINGLES 1998-2018," which featured all their singles and some new songs.
The Covid years saw the band release two singles, "Living Room" and "Between the Lines," both of which were recorded remotely. "Living Room" has gone on to become the band's most-streamed song, tipping over 100k listens.
In 2023, Eden are set to release their new album on their own label, Electric! Records. With their unique blend of synthpop and powerful melodies, Eden continues to carve out their own path in the industry and captivate audiences around the world.
