a. Making a banging truffle oil fettucine
b. Have Tony Buchen produce your first single.
c. Have the capacity to call your band ‘Evan And The Brave’
Influenced by ‘a few older guys like America, The Band, Neil Young, Simon and Garfunkel,’ Evan and The Brave are an all-singing/all-playing quintet out of Sydney. Their first single has seen Triple J rotation and is doing serious play count damage in my iTunes.
The beauty of ‘Lil Monsters’ is the discovery of a new layer of sound with each listen. Playful but stern, the brass crescendos are reminiscent of Lennon’s ‘War Is Over’ and add a degree of mastery to an already magnificent three minutes.
If there were a melodic battle for middle earth – these guys would surely win.
