Electrifying and graceful songstress Evelinn Trouble shares her latest project titled “Hope Music EP”, which is set for release on 4th May via Radicalis. Her previous enthralling singles ‘Monstruous’ and ‘Hope Music’ (the title-track of the upcoming EP), have received support from the likes of Clash Magazine, All Things Go Music, Noisey and Variance Mag have also been met with an overwhelmingly positive response from fans and media alike. Zürich born, now residing in Berlin, Evelinn Trouble has already racked up over a quarter million Youtube views, seen support from Line Of Best Fit and her track ‘Sunset Everytime’ was named by Noisey as one of “The 33 best Swiss rock, indie and alternative songs of the year” with radioplay including Switzerland’s Radio SRF3. Trouble performed back-up vocals for Swiss export Sophie Hunger, and has collaborated with STRESS, and she has taken to the stages of The Great Escape Festival and Montreux Jazz Festival.
Amongst her list of influences are legendary Frank Zappa, Nina Simone, Karon Dalton and Jimi Hendrix, Evelinn Trouble’s sound can be stylistically compared to Thom Yorke and Patti Smith. The singer recorded and produced this release herself, “the sonic universe being a collage of two years of home recording in several bedrooms, attics and hotel rooms across the globe – mixed in Berlin, where her nomadic spirit resides for now.”
Evelinn Trouble’s enthralling EP ‘Hope Music’ is a journeying into the unknown; an exploration of the unknown. “The title track, ‘Hope Music’, showcases Trouble’s unique vocal work – emerging like a Djinn, and powerfully asserts her every word. The title-track traverses melancholic territory yet unfolds as an anthem of hope – delivered by an artist that has truly lived every line in her songs. The intoxicating ‘Monstruous’, according to Trouble, resulted in “a collage of two years of home recording in several bedrooms, attics and hotel rooms across the globe”, while ‘Prison’ is a definite swayer, part-dreamy, part-lucid amidst unforgiving energy – all encompassing on the EP’s sleek, sultry psychedelic-pop chemistry, undoubtedly crafted with the utmost of care and celestial-wisdom.”
Talking about her new EP, Trouble comments: ”This kind of writing doesn’t come easy to me. Now I love it for what it is; songs about the impossibility of love, made of scraps, wrapped shiny in plastic. There is this card in Tarot called the “Hanged Man” – it became a symbol for the song ‘Prison’ to me. The card means that you are stuck in a situation and you have to wait it out.”
