Marc Evans – Chasing Daylight – EP review

Back in April 2011 I introduced Marc Evans and over the intervening years his style has changed for a fuller sound and here I review the three track EP – Chasing Daylight.

A couple of years on and immediately we find a more luxuriant space as Beautiful Blueberries floats out of the speakers, whilst there is a recognizable style, the music has become more dexterous with addition of a fuller percussion to accompany the reflective vocals.

Throwing Them All Away whilst harking back to former sounds is also enlivened by a more expressive composition. The melancholia of the distinctive plaintiff that is Marc Evans remains central to the sound, but it somehow seems more complete as the instrumentation is also given an opportunity to flow along the rivers of regret.

Finishing with Forever You a more rock centred sound is a good place to complete this chapter as it evidences an even stronger delivery that whilst less sentimental in texture is ever more steeped in the core of the central ground.

Chasing Daylight affords Marc the chance to deliver an EP which contains connective tissues to former iterations whilst showcasing a potential new direction.
