HavenÃ¢Â€Â™t Been Yourself
London based label Lucky Number Music, introduce their latest signing, Seventeen Evergreen, their debut single Ã¢Â€Â˜HavenÃ¢Â€Â™t Been YourselfÃ¢Â€Â™ looks set to uphold the reputation of the label.
Seventeen Evergreen are cognitive computers, singers and multi-instrumentalists Caleb Pate and Nephi Evans, both now residents of a breezy land of lush trees and Pacific shores otherwise known as San Francisco, CA.
Living in a house sandwiched between a Deaf Senior CitizensÃ¢Â€Â™ residence and an Alcoholics Anonymous building, the guys had to look no further than their own front door for material for their forthcoming debut album Ã¢Â€Â˜Life Embarrasses Me On Planet EarthÃ¢Â€Â™. And indeed, there is no finer example of this than their upcoming debut (limited release) single Ã¢Â€Â˜HavenÃ¢Â€Â™t Been YourselfÃ¢Â€Â™.
The track is inspired by a schizophrenic neighbour who lived in constant fear of aliens equipped with heavy artillery and would seek Seventeen Evergreen HQ for refuge! In song, the band convey this thematically with an honesty about the human condition that everyone, at moments, can feel otherworldly or unnatural, almost with a sense of being encased in anotherÃ¢Â€Â™s skin. It is that sense of exploration of the psyche, and the worlds that influence and surround us, that makes listening to Seventeen Evergreen truly feel like youÃ¢Â€Â™re being privy to the inner workings of life through all its foibles, successes and, often, sufferance. As lead singer Caleb puts it, Ã¢Â€ÂœWeÃ¢Â€Â™re interested in expressing an Eno-esque nostalgia for the future, a message of escapist optimism amidst technological and financial meltdown, and a disappointment in humanity near and far.Ã¢Â€Â
