As time went on, Varela invited some other local musician friends to join in and what started out as one song eventually evolved into their debut eight-song album entitled “Death of A Very Good Machine.” Guitarist/vocalist Varela brings a wide range of influences to her writing including blues, classic rock, 60s psychedelic as well as dream pop and shoegaze.
Ingram plays guitar as well as doing the tasks of recording and producing. Sebastian Estrada plays bass and synth, and he also helped Ingram with engineering as did Varela. Serge Carrasco plays guitar and Lawrence Brown III plays drums. All five members contribute vocals.
Among others, EEP is influenced by Slowdive, Lush, Cocteau Twins, Verve's "A Storm in Heaven," and Seely.
