Ever since Split Enz released the music video for "Six Months in a Leaky Boat" the idea of a New Zealand band or artist filming themselves in a nautical vessel (or something a lot more modest) has been a solid go to. Perhaps not as popular as NZ car based videos but just as, if not more classy.
The Eversons brand new music video for Hyacinth Girl follows this fine kiwi tradition, showing the world what can be achieved with some coloured paper, snips, and sticky tape.
The clip is made by Lucy Zee and features an intricate plot involving a shipwreck, giant cat masks (that may or may not be depicting Winston Mogwai Nikkel) and the disappearance of guitarist Christopher Young.
The track is taken from the brilliant debut E.P. which has been tearing up the broadband charts ever since Lil Chief released it free on our website earlier this year.
There are still a very limited number of physical copies of the e.p. available direct from Lil' Chief!
The Eversons are currently working on their debut album scheduled to be released on Lil' Chief Records early next year and gearing up for a European Tour to follow!
If you haven't heard the buzz about these lads yet here is some nuggies of media for you...
Sunday Star Times
"Every song here rules." Four stars.
"Young is maturing as one of the country’s best guitarists."
"The Eversons are the latest in a long line of NZ bands (The Clean, The Chills, The Verlaines) that are well-schooled in the art of infectious, well-crafted hooks."
"Impeccable pop hooks"
The Last Remark
"One of my favourite NZ bands of 2011. Lyrical genius I say."
"The Eversons answer a question that isn’t often asked: What happens when you mix The Beach Boys with early 90s alternative rock? The answer is surprisingly good. It’s like the first time I dipped marshmallows in chocolate syrup while I had the munchies."
