The flip side to the AA side single by the English indie-rock trio Everafter was featured earlier this year prior to its release.
Everafter have appeared on the site fairly frequently over the past couple of years, Last Boat To St Helena is the first ballad I have featured and evidences their rising confidence as they explore something very different to their normal style and deliver it with considerable self-assurance.
Word arrives that they are putting together tracks for a new LP and whilst I do always enjoy their more punchy sounds, I do hope they are able to express this more considered style in one of two of the tracks on the planned release.
The English indie-rock trio Everafter are due to imminently release the two track single On The Eventful Road in support of cancer research.
Everafter – On The Eventful Road -artwork
First introduced back in 2014, it is almost a year since their music last featured, only due to missed timings – sadly, not withstanding I am delighted to have permission to share a track from the release in advance of it surfacing for general release.
Everafter are always able to take ideas and put a new spin on them and the recognizable refrain of Do They Know Its Christmas? in On The Eventful Road does not detract from the originality of the track. What is of far greater surprise and intrigue is the way they have been able afford wider space to explore their abilities as musicians and they acquit themselves with aplomb.
With the more measured pacing of On The Eventual Road and the B Side – Last Boat To St. Helena, Everafter demand more of themselves than they have previously and I look forward to their future directions of travel as this single certainly raises expectations.
