I loved the band name, which initially was what piqued my interest, but I'm glad i investigated further as this is an excellent Indie-Rock album.
It's choc full of catchy songs mostly with prominent guitars but also occasional flourishes of keyboards.
However, it's Katherine's vocals that will probably be the deciding factor as to whether you actually love it or not? I think she has a great expressive tone to her voice but it does get quite fragile sounding when she slips into a higher range especially on the ballad 'letter of complaint' and on parts of the excellent 'morning voice'.
The lyrics are also sometimes a bit surreal e.g "you can watch me drink a box of wine" & "now i live under your kitchen sink" both on the fine closing track 'you're joking'.
Their sound to me is something like a cross between Sky Larkin & Veronica Falls but they definitely have their own unique style.
Recommended.

I'm surprised no one has reviewed this album yet as I think it is really good.

It's one of those (quite rare) albums that I have Amazon's recommendation system to thank for. Normally Amazon's recommendations are pretty bizarre (they throw everything at you, don't they?). And so I wasn't expecting much when I gave this one a go. But you know what? In the twenty seconds before my finger hit "delete"... I was quite taken aback. And before long, hooked.

How to describe Evans the Death? They produce indie pop of a somewhat old-fashioned (jangly, 1980s) variety. Which is good if, like me, you feel something of nostalgic pang for those good old days. And much like their punkish forbears, their music is a bit rough-around-the-edges, a bit kitchen-sinky. This is not a criticism: they have (to use an obvious cliche) raw energy.

But there is something else too. And that something is mainly the voice of their singer, Katherine Whittaker. It's pretty amazing. She can stretch and stretch a single syllable across about a dozen notes, which she does on a regular basis. The effect is very catchy - almost hypnotic really.

I should say something about the rather unusual lyrics too: whiny, self-pitying... and very shrewd and funny!

What I discovered was that after a few listens the songs on this album stuck in my head and wormed around it long afterwards. That is invariably a sign of a very good album. I'm pleased I gave this one a chance.
