Vancouver’s Evelyn Mason and Jeremiah Klein (aka Evy Jane) are back with a beautiful, new, downtempo track called “Closer”. It’s the first music I’ve heard from the duo since “Sayso” in 2012 and a video posted by Yours Truly, in the same year, for song called “Nothing So Great”. Evy Jane has always been what I like to call a low-light affair — music saturated with purple-hued moods, hours spent during the late night, and a soulful sensuality to last. — David D. Robbins Jr.
Add some extreme elegance to your night. Evy Jane (Evelyn Mason and Jeremiah Klein) stopped in at the Moon Lab Studios in Brooklyn, N.Y. to record a soft, plush new track “Nothing So Great”, for the wonderful site Yours Truly. And the goodness doesn’t stop there. Thankfully, after you listen to and watch the video below, you’ll be able to download the track at Yours Truly’s soundcloud page. You can follow the Vancouver-based duo at facebook. Note: The above images are screen captures from the video. — David D. Robbins Jr.
Evy Jane’s new track, “Sayso”, is one of two songs on a self-titled EP/12-inch, which also features two remixes to go along with each of the originals. It’s an experimental bit of electronic soul, melting genres and aquatic sounds into a syrup-thick density of warped grooves, dub-beats, and lush lyricism with a seriously-seductive narcotized flow. There’s also a new video for “Sayso”, which you can watch here at vimeo or to the right of this blog in the vodpod widget. The second track, “Ohso”, is heavier and even more dense, using blips, a thumping club bass beat, and an R&B lead vocal that falls away into quieter moments. There’s a hazy, slow-tempo feel like Meshell Ndegeocello’s “Come Smoke My Herb”, or Erykah Badu’s more spaced-out efforts. Evy Jane is the experimental R&B project of Vancouver-based musicians Evelyn Mason and Jeremiah Klein. Listen to the duo at bandcamp, or follow them at tumblr. — David D. Robbins Jr.
