Eikon - You Found Me

Genre: Worship, Experimental, Electronica, Garage

Eikon is the new 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. St Mary’s has been
giving them space to explore, which has now led to several alternative
worship nights trialling out Eikon’s different sounds.

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, which he started writing on the London underground to act as a
distraction from London’s rat-race living. However, Hendra also takes
inspiration from the Psalms and writings of historic theologians, identifying
with their attempts to engage with God through the ages. Hendra further
utilises his Nord Lead and sparse Telecaster harmonies to compliment
Pilcher’s warm analogue synths. In combination, all of this creates the unique
Eikon soundscape.
