evans the death: s/t

Named after the undertaker in Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood, Evans the Death weaves a distinctive magic, coupling main songwriter Dan Moss’s gift for melody with Katherine Whitaker’s unique vocal stylings. The young British band channels the exuberance of youth via the prism of five pop music obsessives, effortlessly blending precocious musical literacy with the kind of unerring self-awareness which makes for a perfectly pitched pop sensibility. Following the release of their instantly acclaimed debut single, the urgent and unsettling latent-cold-war-paranoia love-song “Threads,” and the scathingly acerbic and the boldly fragile second single “I’m So Unclean,” Evans the Death have been given extensive airtime on BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6Music. The press have not been slow to follow, with glowing reviews in Artrocker, This Is Fake DIY, SoundsXP and Drowned In Sound. An extensive UK tour in late 2011 and constant gigging in London has helped to hone their performances into thrilling, energy-packed live shows. Comprised of twelve blistering tracks, the band’s self-titled debut full-length was recorded late summer 2011 with ex-Test Icicle and current Warm Brains man Rory Atwell (Veronica Falls, Male Bonding, The Vaccines). Both “Threads” and “I’m So Unclean” feature on the album, as does their current release, the infectious and exhilarating “Telling Lies,” but in truth the record is chock-full of bona fide classics, from the hi-octane opener “Bo Diddley” to the psychedelic pop of “Catch Your Cold” and the epic “Morning Voice” (on which Whitaker’s vertiginous vocal delivery is given free rein).
