Seventeen Evergreen release Lunar on July 23rd 2007. Seventeen Evergreen are singers, multi-instrumentalists, & most importantly storytellers of imagination & super-reality. Together Caleb Pate & Nephi Evans exude an organic electronic/rock hybrid, kite flying amongst sonic sorcerers Boards Of Canada, MBV, early Pink Floyd and the ubiquitous Pavement.
Lead track, 'Lunar One' is a haunting adventure of constant cosmos fascination, with our traveler leading a determined mission for advancement, "I'm comin' up on you, there's not a thing that you can do..." 'Lunar One' explores the loneliness, as well as the heroism, of space exploration & earthly escapism, "In space rock(y) (he) went up, in smoke for the crowd, with lunar ideas he got lost", but he was still "a new star for all to see", his final irony captured succinctly upon arrival, "what a messed up place, won't you take me down!"
Seventeen Evergreen's inspiration goes far beyond the sonic, of course, and the 'Lunar' EP artwork continues their strong association with visionaries Encyclopedia Pictura, and which has seen their ground-breaking video for debut single 'Haven't Been Yourself' nominated for awards worldwide. Encyclopedia Pictura have also prepared the visuals for the live dates that the band will be performing in London, June 2007. and are now also working on superstar videos for Grizzly Bear, Devendra Banhart & other luminary muso-individualists!
