Evol emanate from Glasgow  and came in to fruition last year, 2010. A classic 4 piece rock out-fit comprising, Leona, Jon, Mic and Jo. Although Jo dropped me a note, there wasn’t a great deal of info and sometimes it is better to just write than get hung up on who does what. I will fill in the gap at some stage, but for now I am guessing it is Leona on vocal.


There is something about Glasgow as you head in from the East and South that just tells you that this is a City full of genuine soulful (as in exposing their soul) musicians, but they tend to be hidden away in the cityscape. Occasionally they escape to the hinterlands and it is always a pleasure. Evol fulfill every expectation and more.

They take the listener on a switch back-ride between melodic angst through to full throttle speaker breaking anger handling the moods with sympathy and generating the need to hear more, like the red eye’d demon in Possilpark.

Vocally, I am reminded of Siouxsie’s primal voice piercing out over a consternation of instrumental power. The strength of Evol lies in their ability to inject their energy intravenously in to the ears of the audience. This is a band I must see live.
