Evans The Death #2 - Telling Lies


Evans The Death have found a perfect home both sides of the Atlantic, being picked up by Fortuna POP! in the UK and Slumberland in the US, their signing to such key underground rock / indie-pop labels should give newcomers a clear signal of the London five-piece's sound and their latest, infectious single "Telling Lies" does not disappoint.

Managing to pack quite the punch during its relatively short duration "Telling Lies" sees thunderous drums and urgent, scuzzy guitars compliment the pitch-perfect, indelible vocals of Katherine Whitaker to a tee, elegant and intelligent, Evans the Death aren't your usual pop act. B-side is an acoustic version of "Morning Voice", a track due to be on their forthcoming debut LP, where Whitaker's Morrisey-esque croon shines even brighter, beautiful delivered on top of cleaner, folkier guitar strums.

I've also included their last single "Threads", a ramshackle juggernaut that I'd previously omitted to mention here, released as a double a-side with the wonderful "I'm So Unclean", both releases are available on wax via Norman Records now.
