We Were Evergreen

We Were Evergreen

 England, GBR

Stories of small trees growing too fast, yaks, children flying south for the winter,of things lost, then found then lost again. A naïve freshness through toy-like instruments and mellow-yet-uplifting choruses that inevitably get caught in your brain plus live sampling percussions and electro too.


We Were Evergreen

The Fly magazine: “We Were Evergreen are like the Michael Cera of the French music world. There’s no denying it’s a summer-styled sound to fall in love with when life is indeed ‘belle”

We Were Evergreen are an alternative indie-electro-pop band from France. The Parisian trio were born in 2008, after a new year's resolution that, for once, actually stuck. Brought together by a shared fondness for all kinds of pop music and nursery rhymes, they tell stories of small trees growing too fast, of yodelling yaks and children flying south for the winter: stories of adolescence, of things lost, then found –then lost again. There's a naïve freshness to their toy-like instruments, and their mellow-yet-uplifting choruses will inevitably get caught in your brain – just throw in some live sampling, a lot of percussions and a dash of electro, and you'll find your hands and feet joining in too.
We Were Evergreen are back in the UK as the main support for Charlie Simpson, Ed Sheeran at The Q Awards and Michael Kiwanuka.
The band is going from strength to strength securing a sync on a Louis Vuitton advert soon to be released and airplay on the Radio Nova ‘Playlist A’ in France.
We Were Evergreen have also been on BBC national news and had articles in The Sunday Times as well as videos on SB.TV and Fly TV.

We Were Evergreen have recently supported Little Dragon at The Great Escape, The Wombats at Lovebox, The Guillemots busking for War Child, Soko as well as playing Wilderness ,Vintage, Secret Garden Party and Green Man Festivals over the summer season. They sold out their 2 debut UK headline shows.
