Ewian was formed in March, 2013 by German composer Ewian Christensen, who is responsible for lead vocals, piano, sound composition and majority of songwriting.

Their new album "Good Old Underground" (October, 2014) is the first full-length release, and focuses on the fringes of society and those who live in it. Their energetic 'wall of sound' includes distorted piano, noisy guitars, bittersweet vocal melodies, and solemn string passages - landing them somewhere between The Cooper Temple Clause and Placebo. Some songs of the album arose from collaborations (Featuring / Remix) with artists outside of germany, for example electronic singer/songwriter Fifi Rong (London) or instrumental Post-Rock artist James Hrabak (Chicago).

Ewian Christensen was born in Latvia and grew up in Germany, where he was schooled in classical music education. As a juvenile, he discovered his love for experimental music and participated in a wide variety of music projects. At the same time he got in touch with Benjamin Lachance with whom he is making music up to the present. Both are characterized by an affinity for deep and archetypical themes, which essentially influenced the today´s sound of Ewian.
