Sofa King Cool was able to catch up with Evandale and discuss the new single
What is The story behind the song?
Little Sista is an acknowledgment and apology in some way to a person who is their own worst enemy; someone who knows they are no good for themselves but also can’t be helped by anyone else.
Does the song have personal meaning to you or was it something you wanted to get across to your fans?
The song isn’t necessarily about any one person or experience, we just noticed a lot of people in our world now are consumed by substances of some kind. People struggling with addictions, choices, or even insecurities; and a lot of those people know they have issues but you can’t help them if they don’t want to help themselves. That’s kind of the basis of the whole song.
What was the writing process on this track?
We actually have had the song for a very long time, a couple of years at least. It was a much more driven song initially and never really felt like Evandale. One night we were all jamming and felt like playing something along the heavy side so we brought this song back out and reworked it. As soon as we rewrote the verse riffs we knew that was going to be the final version. The song felt so much like Evandale without losing any of it’s energy. We knew at that point it would be on the new album “All or Nothing”.
What was the vibe you were going for on this track
We really wanted to keep it driving and high energy. With the chorus being so anthemic we aimed to keep the momentum in the verses without straying too far away from that Evandale sound.
How do you describe your music to people who never heard it before?
Evandale is a modern rock ‘n roll band who capitalizes off the ability to write great songs from slow, sappy ballads to high-flying, head-banging rock ‘n roll. Along with the great vocal range and textures of our lead singer, we incorporate two and three-part harmonies when fitting, and we always like a good jam riff or guitar solo.
Has the Pandemic impacted your music and songwriting?
The biggest impact the pandemic has had on us would definitely be the loss of so many live shows and plans for 2020. We had some festivals lined up this year that we were really looking forward to, as well as plans for a cd release show for the new album “All or Nothing”. Obviously, from that we were hoping to tour the midwest and share the Evandale live show with some states who haven’t seen us yet. We are hoping to pick up in 2021 though and already have one of the festivals rebooked for next year! The silver lining within this year though is it has opened our eyes to how much we had before and how much we really loved and appreciated all of those moments on stage, in front of new faces, and meeting new fans.
We look forward to 2021 and are very hopeful that Evandale can continue to push forward and keep rocking stages all around the US once things get back to normal.
