Melbourne indie pop’n’roll mainstays EVEN have premiered the video for their fantastic new single called Six Monkeys, which was recently playlisted by Double J. The video comprises public domain cartoon footage from the ’30s. As Beat Magazine have said – “The video marries the band’s latest hypnotic masterpiece with the jovial animation, imitating the bobbing to the music that the characters did in the early cartoons.”
Even’s new single Six Monkeys is a full-bodied heavy hitter; a song that defines the term ‘jangle pop’ while making its presence felt with substantial gravitas and power. Built on a simple but irresistible lick from singer/guitarist Ash Naylor and a simple but thick rhythmic base from drummer Matt Cotter and bassplayer Wally Kempton, the song will wow lovers of hook-based early Even hits like Stop & Go Man, Black Umbrella and Mayfair Laundry Bus, as well as those taken with more majestic recent moments like Return to Stardust.
The single was released digitally ahead of a limited edition 7″ coloured vinyl release. (The edition of 150 copies will ship out on or around September 5.) The digital release can now be ordered and the physical release preordered now directly from the band via Bandcamp: https://even.bandcamp.com/album/six-monkeys
Six Monkeys is the first taste of Even’s eighth album, which will be out on El Reno later in the year.
