Eikon is the London based electro-gospel music duo of Dave Hendra and Dave Pilcher. The Daves Met at St Mary’s Bryanston Sqaure, and joined musical forces during their time studying theology together in 2012, fusing their passion for electronic music and worshipping God.
Pilcher, previously a music graduate, and Hendra an arts graduate, began the project with the aim of creating music to enable other electro-enthusiasts to worship and engage with God. Furthermore, the focus was also to create music that would not only appeal to other Christians, but also a secular audience. Eikon’s sound is a mash-up of modern electronica, house music and chilled-out ambient. The result is passionate and melancholic worship, blended with some dance-floor-filler moments.
Pilcher, has had many electronic releases as ‘the Naïve Machine’, and brings his wealth of production experience to Eikon as he composes, produces and arranges the material. Hendra also composes for Eikon, writes the lyrics and sings all the vocals. His interest in lyrical composition stems from his love of poetry and takes inspiration from the Psalms writers as well as the writings of historic theologians.
Eikon have had several features on TV. ‘I Will Follow’ from My Fortress EP was used for Showtime’s TV advert for their show, ‘The Affair’. ‘Self Giver’ from the Human EP has also been used on a Boeing advert and on the TV show Super Nurses.
