FRESH: ‘Curfew’ – Katherine Evans

Katherine Evans talks “Curfew”!

by Christopher Smith

There’s no feeling more exhilarating than falling for somebody, especially in the fleeting, whirlwind romances of youth. Early on, we tend to idolise people, building them up in our heads until our expectations are nowhere near reality. But through somebody may not be as perfect for us as we envision, we can’t help but be swept up with the rush of new love.

In her new single “Curfew”, Katherine Evans describes the thrill of her own experience, riding on the high of infatuation for as long as possible even though she will eventually crash down. In this dark, pulsing track with delicately delivered vocals, we are reminded that, like anything else, this thrill is fleeting. But while it may be a temporary love, it will be fun while it lasts! This new release from Katherine gives a bold, yet simplistic view on young romance, sweeping us up in much the same way as love itself.

Katherine tells us that: “Curfew” is about falling in love with who we need someone to be, rather than who they really are. This song is a glimpse into my brain when I’m head over heels for someone. It’s a roller coaster ride of emotions. It’s fun, it’s exhilarating, and when it’s over, it’s sad. I hope this song makes you feel things!”.

Katherine Evans is a 23 year old singer-songwriter in Los Angeles, CA. With roots in folk music and a love for lyrics, she walks the line between indie and electronic-pop seamlessly, while pouring her heart into each word she sings. Katherine describes her music as “sad songs you can dance to”. She has been compared to artists such as Lorde, Billie Eilish, and Sasha Sloan.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
