All Music Guide:
London-based quartet Evans the Death filter their pop sensibilities through an art-damaged post-punk lens. Comprised of singer/keyboardist Katherine Whitaker, guitarist/singer Dan Moss, guitarist Olly Moss, bassist Lan McCardle (preceded by Matt Gill), and drummer Rob Mitson, the band formed in London, naming itself after the undertaker in Dylan Thomas' radio drama/stage play Under Milk Wood. Evans the Death made their recorded debut in May 2011 with the Threads 7" for Fortuna Pop, showcasing Whitaker's commanding vocals and the band's driving swagger, which earned them airtime on BBC radio as well as Xposure Big One status on the XFM radio network. Sophomore single Telling Lies arrived March 2012 on Slumberland. The band's self-titled debut LP, recorded the previous summer with Rory Atwell (Veronica Falls, Male Bonding, the Vaccines), was released on Slumberland in May 2012.
