Whether it’s the long dark nights of Newfoundland winters which permeate the songs of The Evelyn Room or whether it’s something characteristically darker and introspective, the intense and serious sound produced on the Canadian four piece's self-titled EP leaves the listener contemplating matters infinitely more important than before whence The Evelyn Room was listened.

Despite the overt influence of the likes of B.R.M.C, Joy Division and Radiohead, the musical complexities and slow building climax inherent within each carefully arranged track also lends more than a tip of the hat to another outer Arctic Circle act in Iceland’s Sigur Rós, albeit it with a far rockier, direct and conventional end product. This is no more apparent than on the delightfully structured and performed "Close Your Eyes".

However somewhere along the icy and ball freezing 2,572 kilometre frontier which separates the relative musical outposts of Reykjavik and Newfoundland, a rockier component has been added to the mix. This concoction of styles and influences gives The Evelyn Room an intriguing mix and sound, and when combined with the dark and brooding lyrical delivery makes for a very enjoyable listen. - SoundProof Magazine (Eoghan Macguire)



Vocalist Brad Fillatre bellows quite the smokey croon that works well with the subdued shuffle of the drums and bass as well as the ringing echo of the guitars. The songs sounded smart and honest, while the instrumentation seemed very accomplished for such a relatively new band. Apparently their performance at this years NXNE earned them quite a bit of respect and recognition because there seemed to be an impressive number of people in attendance who were familiar with their songs. - itsnotthebandihateitstheirfans.blogspot.com



Brooding and bold, the haunting rock of the Evelyn Room’s Anywhere Than Here is the perfect soundtrack for a dark, introspective night.
