Evans the Death released their self-titled debut album in April 2012 via Fortuna POP! in the UK / Europe and Slumberland Records in the US. The songs were recorded late Summer 2011 with producer Ex-Test Icicle and current Warm Brains man Rory Atwell (Veronica Falls, Male Bonding, The Vaccines). Main Songwriter Dan Moss describes what the band were aiming for:
“We wanted to make the best sounding record that we possibly could as we’re bored of bands just settling for a half-arsed sound. There were no real fixed reference points when we made it; we just borrowed stuff from any of the pop music that we’ve grown up with. I think it’s also a very economical album. There’s no dilly-dallying around when there should instead be a hook there. We’re very proud of it and glad we paid little or no attention to what is currently fashionable in music.”
Named after the undertaker in Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood, Evans the Death comprise of Dan Moss (guitar, vocals), Katherine Whitaker (vocals, keys), Olly Moss (guitar), Rob Mitson (drums) and newest member Lan McCardle (bass) – original guitarist Matt Gill having left the band following the completion of the album. Attuned as much to the lyrical dexterity of Morrissey, Lawrence Felt, Edwyn Collins, and Jarvis Cocker, as to the scuzzed up melodic exuberance of early My Bloody Valentine, Pavement, The Pixies, and the I Am Kurious Oranj era of The Fall, the band effortlessly blend precocious musical literacy with the kind of unerring self-awareness which makes for a perfectly pitched pop sensibility.
