Seventeen Evergreen – Burn The Fruit (Pegasus)

Burn The Fruit (Pegasus), directed by Brian Ziffer, further consolidates Seventeen Evergreen’s consistency in producing highly creative visual art around their music.

“The video is a continued exploration in real-time audiovisual cinema. A kind of ‘visual music’ where the process involves manipulating video in real time. With help from the Syphon Recorder, VDMX and other customized tools, the performance and capture of these live video mixes became analogous to the process of mixing and mastering music.” Seventeen Evergreen’s Caleb Pate.

Seventeen Evergreen – Steady On, Scientist!

Seventeen Evergreen’s sophomore long player, Steady On, Scientist!, is released this week. An incredible album that, like their debut, is entirely self-written, recorded and produced and, once again, emphasizes its creators clear and unique identity, away from the pack.

Names like New Order, Air, Screamadelica-era Primal Scream, Sonic Youth or Flaming Lips may come to mind, but sonically and spiritually, it’s a singularly triumphant and liberating concoction, an anthemic vision.

To further celebrate the release, we’re delighted to present this visual album trailer.  A forcefully kaleidoscopic immersion into the mini-verse of Seventeen Evergreen’s wonderful new album, created by Antoine Boilevin (who also designed the album artwork).

Steady On, Scientist is available now!

Seventeen Evergreen – Angels

Seventeen_evergreen_B_2

We are delighted to present to you the MP3 for “Angels” from Seventeen Evergreen’s Psyentist EP which will be released next Monday (Dec 5) but you can get here now.

The band’s video for lead EP track “Polarity Song” debuted on Gorilla Vs. Bear earlier this month and promptly racked up 75,000 views in the first weekend.

The EP’s second track, the ultra-groovy “Angels”, reverberates with beautiful harp strums juxtaposing against anguished layers of backing harmonies that act like a synaesthestic audio phenomenon relative to Edward Munch’s ‘Scream.’ The four track Psyentist EP is a celebration of the science of imaginary solutions.  It’s the precursor to the band’s forthcoming LP, Steady On, Scientist!, which will be released in Spring 2012.

“Embrace the (crochet) polarity! Seventeen Evergreen’s ‘Polarity Song’ is brilliant loopy madness” (The Next Stitch)

“the song’s fantastic. It sounds like New Villager collaborating with pre-Oracular Spectacular MGMT” (YouAintNoPicasso)

“…it’s a kind of knit-one-purl-one horror show, all itchy woollen balaclavas and crocheted vests. It’s so good” (The Guardian)
