review by Quick Before it Melts
Singer-songwriter Rebecca Everett isn’t the kind of person to easily back down from a challenge. When asked about the making of her new EP, Seven Shades, Everett explained, “Recording is a delicate and wonderful challenge. Sometimes you get lucky…the earth sighs, the sky cracks open and the universe echoes in approval. This project feels like one of those moments.”
Everett and her band The Dead Ringers–James Robertson (guitar), Tyler Quint (bass), Paul Braunstein (drums) and Neil Quin (keyboards)–have crafted a moody and melodic five-song release that “…came from being in a space between loss and faith, a meditation that brings deep, dark hidden mysteries up to the surface to look at.” She adds, “It’s doubtful that any of [Seven Shades] could exist without periods of the obscurity and loss of faith, for we have to let our former stage of faith die to move onto the next. I think the fear of death arises because we have been programmed to believe we are an object.”
Rebecca Everett is sharing Seven Shades with Quick Before It Melts today, streaming below a day ahead of the record’s physical and digital release.
