You may have already come across We Were Evergreen through the previously released underground track ‘Leeway’. However the last year has seen this exciting trio, Michael Liot, Fabienne Debarre and William Serfass, focus on their debut album, which is now complete, comprising of 11 brand new tracks and set for release in the Spring 2014. The first offering comes on March 3rd with single ‘Daughters’.
Born in Paris but now firmly based in London, We Were Evergreen are a unique band with a fresh sound – an exciting amalgamation of beats and rhythms from across the world, warm vocals and electronic-pop melodies. The results are universal modern tales that draw on the power of images to create songs both happy and dark whilst predominantly feeding on the carefree fun of just being young.
‘Daughters’, which was produced by Charlie Andrew, is a thrilling synth-pop track, which provides the perfect taster of what is to come on We Were Evergreen’s debut album. The accompanying video is equally unique and was shot in one take with 20 female dancers. Having already received plays across various stations including 6 Music and XFM, ‘Daughters’ is as catchy as it is credible – an intelligent musing that will essentially make people want to get up and dance.
Intrinsic to the We Were Evergreen philosophy is their vital live show. Having built up a super-strong live following after early shows at SXSW, CMJ and Secret Garden Party and support slots for Little Dragon and London Grammar, the band have already played their own sold out shows across Europe, including Village Underground in the UK. With the debut album ready, the band can’t wait to play the full set live and push the fan-base ever wider.
