Jennifer Evans is ready to follow up her debut album Works From the Dip and Foul with a new single on May 6th.
‘Bakkos’ is a change of tone for the musician whose last album had a jazz / harmonic / indie sound the last time out.
The song is more frantic and leans towards art-rock squall and a post-rock rhythmic style. All the while Evans sounds most like PJ Harvey at her most abrasive and raucous.
The song is “a tale about the narrator passing an internal self-judgment on their own indulgence in a imaginary Bacchanalian court, gaining no comfort, perhaps as her own indulgence is an escape from pain.”
‘Bakkos’ is a brave new step for Evans. The single was written by Evans and co-produced by herself, Gavin Farrell and Marc Pell (the drummer from Micachu & The Shapes).
