ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With influences that draw from the likes of Hatebreed and Final Fantasy video games, Seve Vs. Evan have emerged from a stagnant scene to cultivate a truly original sound and aesthetic. Over the past three years their powerful live sound and showmanship prove their professionalism, passion and love of good times. Sharing the stage with bands like Ozma, The Rentals, Tilly and the Wall, The Sounds, and The Elected, they have wowed over all the skeptics. With a couple of tours under their belts and three self produced records, their appeal has found favor across the west and even the planet! Their belief in the music comes through in every song. You know they believe what they are saying and you feel it. Whether its relating to the unique and clever lyrics or feeling the kick drum in your chest, you just can't help but dance.

Seve vs. Evan is only the best
Seve vs. Evan is really different, and non traditional. Which is one of the reasons so many people love them! I know I really enjoy this album, and I can't get enough of it.

I found this video on the burton website that had this song on it. I loved it and i had to find who sang it. It took me awhile to find who sang it but now im glad i did.. this is the sweetest song to listen too!!!

A Review by ListenersGeneration.com...

Armed with one wild keyboardist/vocalist, one raging drummer, and a fantastically zany collection of clever, bouncy rock songs, Seve Vs. Evan have released the lyrically rich and fantastically unique CD, Steam Powered Rocket Ship.

This two-piece powerhouse from Utah doesn't approach creativity by simply thinking "outside the box." Instead, they smash the box with a sledgehammer, set it on fire with a gallon of gasoline and a Zippo, and watch it burn. From the ashes they create great songs such as their disc opener, "Once upon a Sailor." With a keyboard tone reminiscent of vintage video games and lyrical lines like, "We could not kiss / Said I smelled like fish and needed to clean my teeth," you might feel concerned for the safety of your ears and mind. Let me assure you, as crazy as it is, this is phenomenal stuff. There is intense, pure talent behind this music.

Even better is the next tune, "Destination Tokyo." In fact, it's one of my favorites. If it wasn't 3 am, I'd call up all of my friends and have them listen to the melody in the chorus of this song. It's inspiring to hear artists who aren't afraid to do what they please and to have it turn out so entertainingly well.

Continuing with their signature arcade/rock sound is another great tune, "Lady Lady." Seve sings, "She is the stuff. She thinks I am neat. I think she is hot 'cause she played on the science team." Ah, love. Again, the band treats us not only to fresh lyrics, but to melodies that are quite innovative.

I haven't even begun to mention Seve Vs. Evan's instrumental talents. Remember, there is only one keyboardist/vocalist (Seve) and a drummer (Evan). With the absence of a bassist, Seve has to throw down some pretty steady chord-playing to keep the sound full. However, he doesn't let the heavy melodic load hold him back. His chord structures are complex, and he frequently incorporates some very technical riffs. As for Evan, he is the sole rhythmic backbone and has quite a bag of impressive technical moves, himself. Both are extremely talented musicians and have inspired me to fire my own bassist.

Closing out the disc is, "Excuse Me, Mr. Captain Sir." It's got a short verse and chorus, which revolves around a longer musical interlude. You can really feel Seve Vs. Evan's energy and wit simply via the performance of the instruments in this song. The lyrics are good, too, and summarize to me what this band is all about. Seve sings to the Captain, "If it's all the same, I'll keep my own company until she sinks to the bottom of the sea. I will never change, I will never change."

These guys certainly do things their own way, but I highly doubt they'll sink to the bottom of the sea. They've got a rapidly growing fan-base and a killer live show. There are also quite a few impressive videos floating around the Internet of the fellas in concert. Looks like one hell of a good time. If you can't make it to a show, buy their disc immediately. Seve Vs. Evan's CD, Steam Powered Rocket Ship, is a remarkable, standout release.
