Free Music (Presidents Day Edition)! Evans the Death - "Telling Lies"

As we await the self-titled debut album from Slumberland's newest signings with baited breath, Evans the Death release the first single from the album, "Telling Lies", on March 6. This comes as a necessary wake-up call, heralding an outstanding new band, bursting with ideas and brimming with talent.

Combining Katherine Whitaker's unique vocals with a gift for melody, the band weave a distinctive magic. "Telling Lies" is an infectious and exhilarating slice of indie-punk-pop.

Stream: "Telling Lies" -

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.

The band document and channel the exuberance of youth via the prism of five pop music obsessives, gleaning inspiration from all of the music with which they grew up. They draw as much from the lyrical dexterity of Morrissey and Jarvis Cocker, as from the scuzzed-up melodic exuberance of early My Bloody Valentine and The Pixies.

Evans The Death drops Evans The Death via Slumberland/Fortuna Pop! on April 3.
