Listen: Dream Rock Trio Evanoff Drops Debut EP
The electric trio Evanoff rocked the stage at Suwanee Hulaween this past October, and now they’re debut EP, Dark Before Dawn, has been released for the world to hear.
Dark Before Dawn features four tracks, including two hit singles, “Crowd Control” and “Stealing Fire”, that was released in 2017. It was released on Jan. 26 and is available for streaming on Spotify and Soundcloud.
Evanoff is a unique music group that started off playing shows at The Fox Theatre in the heart of Boulder, Colorado. Their energizing breakbeats, symphonic guitar riffs, and powerful builds all compile into a digital sound they call “Dream Rock”. It’s best described as a fusion of classic rock and modern electronic elements.
The group is composed of three members: JJ Evanoff on the guitar, Jake Hall on the drums and Brennan Forrester rocking the keys. After two short years, they have become a force to be reckoned with in the Colorado music scene. Their new EP was highly anticipated and demonstrates their want to bring the listener into a storyline of meaningful sound. The mixture of hard rock and soft melodic moments in their tracks grabs the listener’s attention by creating a push and pull of harsh and subtle sound. Dream rock is on the rise, and Evanoff is a leading supplier of this new genre.
The group has been working hard to fine-tune this method of merging genres, all leading up to this release. Evanoff’s hope for this album is to bring classic rock into the electronic dance music scene and create a beautiful marriage of classic rock components and progressive techno sounds, taking inspiration from iconic rock groups such as The Who and The Revivalists.
Evanoff is currently touring around Colorado. You can view their tour dates here.
We look forward to seeing more from Evanoff and exploring the evolution of the dream rock genre
