Syd-based alt-rockers Sevsons have just stepped off a whirlwind east coast tour, throwing their weight behind Brissy rockers Dead Letter Circus. The four-piece have been on the up and up in local alt-rock circles over the past coupla’ years, and have already supported Aussie prog rock and metal vets Closure in Moscow, Caligula’s Horse and Circles.
If you’re a fan of Karnivool or Gyroscope you’re going to absolutely soak up these guys’ latest single, ‘Evolution’. Be prepared for the catchy riff to prick your ears from the get go, eventually intertwining with an emotive melody and uplifting chorus. For this clam, ‘Evolution’ awoke a welcome nostalgia; slinging me back into the murky waters of my teenage alt-rock/ post-hardcore phase.
As is commonplace with many tracks within the genre, ‘Evolution’ touches on mental health and personal hardship.
Evolution is an emotionally immersive and uplifting song for us. It’s a lifeline to everyone out there dealing with their own struggles; a reminder that you’re capable of overcoming those struggles and contributing positively to the world around you.
Ahead of their highly anticipated gig at local haunt Rad Bar on July 15th, Sevsons have given Pearler an exclusive peak at a playlist curated especially for those of us craving a healthy dollop of heavy rock, metalcore and hardcore punk. Cop a blast from the likes of Cancer Bats, Parkway Drive, Underoath and even a freshy from Brit post-HC band DON BROCO.
Tix are still available for Sevsons upcoming gig at Rad through good ol’ Moshtix. The lads will be playing alongside My Kind of Memory, ok hotel and Dribs – so what are you waiting for? Get clicky with it, son.
