We are so excited to premiere the new song today from EVVAN called “Hurricane,” which is the first single off her forthcoming, debut EP, Home. “Hurricane” features a booming bass line, snappy percussion and jangly guitars that EVVAN uses as a platform for her lyrics and memorable voice to shine. The production of “Hurricane” is top-notch and reminds us of early Fleetwood Mac (we tend not to make comparisons here at P&W), that’s been crossed with a definitive songwriter’s-edge that only 2020 could bring us. “Hurricane” was recorded in Los Angeles and co-produced by members of the band Milo Greene, and mixed/engineered by Grammy winner Sean O’Brien.
“Relationships have a way of mimicking chaotic storms. There’s a beauty in the sky opening up and feeling the rain pouring down. It can be cathartic, signaling a fresh start. But sometimes you get caught in the craziness of it all when a volatile relationship heads into a downward spiral. This song was a direct result of the ending of a relationship and mirrored in the turbulence of a hurricane. Fleetwood Mac has always been one of the bands I turn to when I need to escape and during the recording of this song, I wanted to throw in hints of their style as an homage to them getting me through my own hurricane.” – EVVAN
