|Pop Evil, O2 Islington, London, UK - 2019|
If you pre-ordered Pop Evil's new album, Versatile, today is the day - for a real treat. If you didn't pre-order: today's the day to buy your copy.
Available from all the usual outlets.Today!
There is always such an energy, a power, with Pop Evil's music - moving you onwards, forwards, through and through. A driving force, drums and bass behind everything. This is so strong beginning with the opening track, "Let the Chaos Reign" and even greater in "Work" - if you're looking for a new workout song, this is it. Then it moves into something more gentle; "Inferno" is rather beautiful... there's a distant quality to the song, almost underwater, "slowly sinking in sand".

Several of these songs were released online before today... hearing them within the context of the entire album brings them even more to light.
I apologise... I intended to write a much more in-depth review. Instead, I just want to listen to this music. On repeat. You should try it too.
Upcoming tour dates: https://popevil.com/tour-dates/ I really, really hope to be at Aftershock Festival. Fingers crossed, vaccinated, tested... everything crossed that international travel is allowed by then! (As my family is spread across several countries and continents, so is Pop Evil: I'm wondering how the band-family is handling this (drummer Hayley Cramer is based in the UK; rest of the band in the USA).
