Jewels Of The Nile are a trio out of Portland with an obvious influence from the dark Northwest. Formed early in 2010 by Meghan Christine and Jessy Montaigne (SUBTONIX) while playing in their other project MAGICK DAGGERS, the two bonded over a common love of more primal, down tempo electronic music, also sharing double air in the stars, combining to create a spark of desire to form something that allowed the freedom of complete exploration in music and the world. The two are joined by Amity Givens rounding out the live performance on drums and percussion.
In the past annum, even without a physical release, they’ve already played both coasts with kindred spirits Jessie Evans, The Present Moment, Soft Metals, Bestial Mouths and Arohan on the US West Coast, with a short tour of Mexico City performing in underground art gallery parties with Ritualz, and in New York City with their second live performance at QxBxRx. They also did a short European tour in May playing Paris, Brussels, Spain, Italy and Germany.
The music transcends boundaries of dark electronic dance beats, to hints of tropical upbeat tango rhythms, laced with psychedelic reverb and infectious new wave hooks in others. Montaigne provides ether based come- hither lyrics that at times span into a deeper velvet clad register, bringing the suggestion of a more sensuous gnosis. The textures of the multiple synth layers range from pensive organ sounds to bell-like island melodies over tribal and break beats.
After a split 7" with fellow Portlanders Soft Metals out earlier this year on desire, Jewels Of The Nile are releasing their first album 'Pleasure' on desire (vinyl, CD and digital) and Sweating Tapes (cassette).
