Review: Evans The Death, self-titled (out now)


Emma Mackintosh

Evans The Death
Fortune POP! - out now

SOUNDING from the band name like a Welsh Grim Reaper, musically this lot sound like if Florence and the Machine actually had a little fun for a change.

This, their debut album was released in April and was put together by main songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Dan Moss, keyboard player and vocalist Katherine Whitaker, guitarist Olly Moss, drummer Rob Mitson and bassist Lan McCardle (guitarist Matt Gill left the band following the completion of the album).

Airplay on Radio 1, 6Music and XFM has helped and the band have received glowing reviews across the board. Frankly, it's easy to see why. This has the sentiment and sound of the Pixies or early Arctic Monkeys, while Whitaker's vocals echo the likes of Annie Lennox, PJ Harvey and to a lesser extent Lily Allen.

For a debut album this has an awful lot of direction and determination. I think this band could go on to great things.

Also they have a song named 'A Small Child Punched Me In The Face' which is just brilliant.
