Happy Valentine’s Day – with a song. <3

It’s a big day for us this – and I’m not referring to roses or heart shaped chocolates or anything like that, I am of course referring to the latest addition to the Ever Anew family. Hide For Cupid has finally hatched, and I am proud and exited to finally be able to show you guys what’s been brewing in Wapping over the last few months.

We decided it was only appropriate for a love story like Hide For Cupid to be released into the world on Valentine’s Day. I’ve come to think of it kinda like a musical Valentine’s card to everyone I’ve ever shared a laugh with; and yeah, that probably means most of you guys. So take a minute to download a free copy and let me accompany you on your iPods for a little while!

Well… Without further due then, here she is: Hide For Cupid. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed writing it!


Hide For Cupid 

First, there was laughter 
Then something in his eyes 
She knew that he was different 
Not like them other ties 
He stripped her of her masks 
She let him take them off 
It’s almost like he knew 
Her so-called perfect life made no sense until now 
What’s a girl to do? 

They couldn’t hide, for Cupid and his arrows were too sharp 
Now they swim for their lives and for love in a sea of broken hearts 
They couldn’t hide, for Cupid and his arrows were too sharp 

She is just a woman 
And he is just a man 
They didn’t mean to fall in love 
No, that wasn’t the plan 

They couldn’t hide, for Cupid and his arrows were too sharp 
Now they swim for their lives and for love in a sea of broken hearts 
They couldn’t hide, for Cupid and his arrows were too sharp 

Stupid girl for trading all you’ve built for your own happiness

Live Time – finally!

After months of rehearsing, writing new songs and working hard on the beautiful circus that is Ever Anew, it is time.

We’ve got a few gigs lined up and more being organised as we speak (keep an eye on the Live section), so we do hope to see some familiar faces when we finally step on to those stages. First up is THE BRINK in one week today, which is a bit special since that’s where we did the EP launch in May. I love the place, and the atmosphere and the people are lovely. Plus it’s a dry bar, so people actually listen to the performances, which is a nice change. And of course you can’t go wrong with a nice cup of tea! The food is great as well, check out their drink and food menus for a better impression than I can give you!

Good times at The Brink, May 2012
Good times with amazing people at The Brink in 2012. The NEW Ever Anew is back at The Brink 19/02, for our first gig of 2013!

We will be playing last, after Aurora, Tom Crofts and Matthew McGurty. Show starts 8 and finishes at 10:45. See you there…?

Getting ready!

Presenting: The new Ever Anew!

Finally!

The whole band is finally in place, and I can’t wait to start playing live with these awesome awesome guys! We were lucky enough to get to keep Kristian from the EP Launch (WUHU!!), but the rest of the players are brand spankin’ new to the table. Ready? Embrace the boys! ❤

Kristian Barli
Kristian is the only other Norwegian in the bunch, and he is a wizard on keys. He’s a busy boy, and has a lot of different balls in the air – bands and musicals and you name it – and we are lucky to have him. I’m looking forward to having his flair sprinkled all over the (Ever A)new songs!

Kobi Pham
Kobi first contacted me about playing at the release gig, but Will Rogers was already on the job then. Since Will is busy doing his own stuff this year I emailed Kobi when the time came to re-group, and he jumped straight on it. He is so great, he is passionate about the music and has lots of good ideas. Before I even asked him to join he had bought the EP off iTunes and learned two of the songs just because he liked them…! He also found the rest of the bunch for us, so YAY Kobi!

Wana Shibemba
Awesome guy, loves the music, comes prepared and knows his shit. Just look at him. Fierce! Haha, but seriously, he is one funky mofo.

Elliot Chapman
Elliot was the last piece of the puzzle, and we had one hell of a first rehearsal on Wednesday. He is going to bring some electronic kit-bits in very soon, so we can play around with awesome sounds. Way cool.

Daniel Drumm
And of course you know Dan. He has been coming up with some fantastic song ideas lately, and we are pretty much writing every day now. We’re totally on the same page with the sound, and I am loving the new songs. Which you will hear soon enough by the way. 😉

We’ve only had one rehearsal all together, but it was a great rehearsal. It is so fantastic to play with a band where everyone is involved, enthusiastic, likes the music and puts the work in between rehearsals! Yes!! We got through Hide Away and Any Day Now last week, and I’m already looking forward to playing Nothing I Could Do and Free on Wednesday. And then, on to the new stuff!

We might try some covers eventually as well – there’s so many amazing bands out there at the minute!! Such as, you say, and I won’t disappoint. The bands I can’t live without right now are Active Child, Everything Everything, Alt-J and Dear Pariah, to name a few. And if you like music, which you do because you’re human, you should seriously check them out.

It’s good to be back, and you will see a lot more of me in the weeks to come. I hope you already follow us on Twitter and Facebook and Instagram (everaudrey) and wherever else we live!

Lots of love,
One Happy Audrey.
