Surging forward, the track hinges on a manic soccer stadium-ready gang chant as a steady beat simmers. Her attitude seeps through the verses as she admits, “You scream my name when I take it too far,” as glitchy electronics entwine with heavy breathing. It explodes on the call-and-response hook, “You only get what you BLEED.”
With hectic punk energy and universal pop ambition, she strikes a balance between the wild sonic bliss of WILLOW and classic Gwen Stefani ‘just a girl’ energy.
Earlier this year, Evie released “The Idea Of You,” which is closing in on 1 million total streams across platforms. Receiving critical acclaim, The Interns commended her “daring vocal performance,” while Alan Cross’ A Journal of Musical Things hailed it as “all charm.” Thomas Bleach asserted it “will have you wanting to run down dark streets screaming the lyrics out in a personal release of emotions.”
After returning to her hometown of Sydney from LA during 2020, Evie Irie has been channeling her pop punk dreams in to songwriting with some of Australia’s most progressive producers. With a vocal range showcasing the reason she’s been heralded as one of the great new vocalists, and now leaning in to a 90s power punk identity, this new sound sets us up for an exciting era with this teenage pop wunderkind.
