Evilyn blend the darker side of Alternative Rock with Heavy Metal riffs, hard hitting drums, synth interludes and ambient vocals to create a sound unlike most others on the scene.
London-based Evilyn have shared the stage with bands such as Fearless Vampire Killers, ESO, Evarose, Trails, My Extraordinary etc.
The band have recently released NEW single ‘The Fire’ – our Scriba Pontificus had a listen:
According to some physicists we all emerged from a giant spark – the whole universe came alive in an amazingly powerful flash of radiant light. That’s what this song’s about … the bright starlight radiance we all come from – and we will all go to.
The synth line moves moodily like a skulking murderess across a dark moor. Then the vocal parts take their turns – to step cautiously in … to take centre stage. The song shines like moonstone – and then the brilliant guitars – like burnished steel – spread angel wings and ascend.
The sentiment is questioning “ Were we ever raised to survive? “ Yet, the song is full of clarity and sincerity that goes way beyond idle & morose speculation.
The song gradually rises – as bright as the pole-star – and acts as a guiding beacon for all those who would seek forgiveness.
This is a truly superb track by masterful musicians. With a story to tell. And the ability to tell it.
