Track Review: The New Eves – Original Sin

Words by Brad Sked

There appears to be a Brighton renaissance, with the south-coast city once again birthing some of the finest emerging acts the country has to offer. The likes of Lime Garden, Public Body and Wax Machine and now one of the most exciting new and interesting bands in the country right now, The New Eves (Kate Mager (bass), Ella Russell (drums, flute, vocals), Nina Winder-Lind (cello, guitar, vocals) Violet Farrer (violin, guitar, vocals) are one of the latest glorious outfits to arise from the sunny seaside town.

Sharing their second-single ‘Original Sin’, the follow up to ‘Mother’, out now via Slow Dance Records and Broadside Hacks, The New Eves newcomers latest offering is another alluring gem from the quartet. Delving between almost primal-shamanic-psych-folk, fuzz-tinged garage-pop and the scuzzy New York sounds reminiscent of that of the likes of The Velvet Underground and Television, ‘Original Sin’ is a piece that encapsulates a band that are truly difficult to categorise.

Really glorious stuff from the Brighton 4-piece and with just two singles already and an already formidable live reputation, The New Eves are already one of the most interesting and exciting new acts the country has produced in a little while and could well be your future favourite band.
