Blending elements of anthemic rock with new wave dramatics, opening track 'Beneath the Fire' creates an amalgamation of expansive intertwined guitars, peaceful piano, feverish drumbeats, with aggressive yet harrowing vocals. Sounding a bit like Radiohead if Thom Yorke decided to fully embrace his inner punk, Evaline's sound is extremely accessible - the multi layered guitar enables one to lose themselves in the emphatic tone of the melodies. With this melting pot of progressive/alt rock/posr-punk vibes, the only constant is creating something thoroughly dynamic.

In their early 20s and having already retooled their sound since recording their debut EP aged 16, their youthful precociousness has seen them pick and choose from their influences for this, their full length debut. Luckily the six piece have selected some pretty popular and successful reference points with Ascend and Raptures's combination of soaring bass, driving riffage and singer Richard Perry;s yearning vocals, set in the epic moulds of Muse and 30 Seconds to mars. despite these similarities, however, woven Material still sounds cohesive rather than derivative.
Evaline - Patterned review

The guys have just released their first EP and were actively touring the US. Instantly, the ambient and at the same time boisterous sound of Evaline caught my attention. The six tracks from ‘Postpartum Modesty. A Portrait of Skin’ made the way to my all time favorites list and stayed there for years to come. I like to think of that band as a kind of rare gem that you have found in the dirt and while enjoying it and showing to the people around, you guard it meticulously and cherish the fact that only you and couple of other people in the world can flatter themselves with actually having it. I am sure that most of us have bands that fit that description. After four long years Evaline releases a second EP which for my infinite delight manages to keep the spirit of originality and this perfect balance between relaxed/lush and rough/energetic sound. It is definitely something these guys excel at.
The Patterned EP contains only 3 tracks and to say that it is not much after four years of waiting would be an understatement. But somehow even with these couple of songs a band recreates the unique atmosphere from the old EP together with refined and clearly more produced sound on Patterned. One of Evaline’s strongest points is the drumming. It was extremely well delivered in 2006 and the departure of the previous drummer, Steve Forrest to join Placebo only emphasizes his skill while at the same time tearing a huge hole in band’s line-up. The replacement comes in the face of Greg Petersen who not only fills the role of Evaline’s drummer exceptionally well, but brings his own powerful style to contribute to the band’s singular sound. The intense breakdowns and fills on Hours and Patterned tracks make you want to jump into a mosh pit and severely damage somebody’s face. Gladly, on Beneath the Fire the drums provide relaxed and structured grounding to equally amazing vocals and synths. Richard Perry, Evaline’s front man does an excellent job creating melancholic and ambient moods with profound yet not at all empty lyrics. It looks like during these four years his voice matured, deepened and got soaked in bourbon for a while. Evaline’s pair of guitarists, working together extremely well, developed their own progressive, layered, crunchy sound, heard best on Beneath the Fire in its harmonious form and powerful distorted form on two other tracks. Overall the guitars add an incredible depth to all the songs on Patterned EP with transitions from progressive to post-hardcore sound.
Patterned EP along with more songs from a future studio album was entirely recorded and mastered in the UK under the supervision of Dan Austin, a recording producer for bands like Doves and Biffy Clyro. Only god knows how these guys got together but it seems to work out and result in Evaline’s even more distinct sound. In my opinion a new producer’s biggest contribution can be attributed to very well executed synths and effective ambience on every track. The feeling of floating and the band playing only for you is always there, regardless the state of your soberness.
It is indeed difficult to equal Evaline’s endeavor on Patterned EP to certain band or album. The vocals may remind of Anthony Green and Circa Survive material however not as high pitched and aggressive. The instrumental work makes some kind of an impossible blend of Thrice/Dredg/U2 sound with drumming from Deftones. In any case, it is this crazy salad of Progressive, Post-Hardcore, Alt. Rock that makes Evaline to stand out as a band. Patterned, is a great produce from a great band and hopefully the future full-length album will be another gem in your music collection.

We say Evaline are a young Californian six piece who have supported bands as diverse as Deftones, 30 Seconds to Mars, Dir en Grey and Apocalyptica in the US. They've played two Warp tours too - all the time building a fanbase and developing their brand of skillfully layered and accessible rock. They have recorded an album's worth of material with Dan Austin (Doves, QOTSA, Biffy Clyro, Cherry Ghost) in the UK. This is the first track released from those sessions, and from it we can hear why recent shows in LA and New York have been busy with label attendees - they write epic, melodic rock which (with an edit) will sound great on the radio. The Patterned EP with three tracks, including this one, is available through AWAL on iTunes ahead of a proper release next month. The band recently supported Placebo at Brixton Academy and Young Guns on other UK dates. They are currently available for records and publishing.

Last night's lineup at the Regency Ballroom, however, was perfect. Opener Evaline was the surprise discovery of the night - this band of local boys (well, kind of - they're from Modesto) lucked out in getting on such a high profile tour. Evaline is currently unsigned, but judging by the show the band put on, expect that to change soon. Singer Richard Perry seemed a natural, keeping up a constant dialogue with the crowd and threatening to launch himself into it (thankfully he refrained from actual stage diving, thus sparing the pretty dresses of some of the goth girls from irreparable shoe-related damage). Evaline is oddly ambient for a rock band, but in a weird and energetic way, rather than a nap-inducing one. Ridiculously high energy, last night's opener set the tone perfectly for what was to follow.

Bursting with a truckload of undeniable musical flair. Do the math, and you get rock icons in the making. Ever since starting out in 2001, their resume is undeniable impressive, what with two Vans Warped Tours and a Taste of Chaos tour under their belts. Quinn Allman of The Used is an admitted fan, producing their 2006 EP -- “Postpartum Modesty - A Portrait of Skin” -- after getting his hands on some of their early recordings.
They've garnered a loyal fan base over the years, and on stage, the band is a force of nature, emitting ridiculously high energy and going all out for unforgettable shows. Ex-drummer Steve Forrest famously made headlines a few years back when he went on to drum for Placebo, but nobody’s complaining -- the two bands toured together in the UK just last year.
Evaline is currently without a label, but with talent that huge, we bet it’s just a matter of time until things change. Especially with their latest EP “Patterned” out on iTunes and an album on the way for a summer release.
So keep an eye out for this six-piece -- singer Richard Perry, guitarists Dominic DiCiano, Dan Peterson and Christian Lewis, basist Steven Pederson and drummer Greg Peterson -- ‘cause they’re definitely an act to watch out for.

These guys make it look simple. Dressed to look the part, the high energy and well choreographed stage show is executed to perfection. It’s rhythmic, pulsating and loud. And it’s topped off by one of the most impressive and dramatic frontmen in music today. The only problem is finding a venue big enough to put them in.
