Eves The Behavior has released her new single, the ambitious ‘Girl’.
EVES THE BEHAVIOR, one of the most exciting young Australian artists to emerge in 2015’s is set to release her self-titled debut EP July 24
Since adding ‘THE BEHAVIOR’ to her moniker at the end of 2014, the soon to be twenty-one year old, known for her lush, dark electro-pop has signed a deal with ATC Management (Nick Cave, Warpaint), has spent time in the US and the UK working with songwriters such as Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint), Samuel Dixon (Sia, Adele) and Chris Walla (Deathcab For Cutie) and has also just inked a recording deal with UK label, Island Records where she will count Mumford and Sons, Hozier, Disclosure, PJ Harvey and Florence and the Machine as label mates.
The four track EP features previously released singles ’TV’ and ‘Electrical’, both of which became fast favorites at triple j and have gained in excess of 1.136 million total combined plays online, as well as brand new track ‘Digging’ plus a remix of ‘TV’ from the hands of producer / Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa.
As influenced by Internet-hyper-pop as she is lyrical eloquence, Hannah Karydas covers the vast musical territory that blurs the line between pop and experimentalism that has quickly won her listeners from around the world – from folk fans that are drawn to her curious voice and clever lyricism, to electronic music enthusiasts that are drawn to her textured and deftly spun samples.
Speaking to Rolling Stone Magazine of the forthcoming release Karydas says, “I’m really focusing on creating a fictional world with recurring characters, and a story that unfolds every time I put something out… I’m a very visual person. Songs exist in rooms for me and they have certain defined faces with certain temperatures. To me music and visuals go hand in hand.”
‘Electrical’ is the latest offering from enigmatic young songstress EVES THE BEHAVIOR, taken from her forthcoming debut EP to be released this year via Dew Process / UMA.
Capturing the dark and dramatic side of our heroine, ‘Electrical’ was directed by ARIA Award winning Josh Logue (Daniel Johns, Tkay Maidza, Hilltop Hoods), who claimed the accolade for his conceptual vision on Empire Of The Sun’s ‘Walking On A Dream’ clip. Logue also directed EVES THE BEHAVIOR’s captivating video for ‘TV’, the first installment of a three-part collaboration.
“The Electrical music video is part 2 of a trilogy Hannah and I have been working on based around a series of characters. Part surrealist dream, part reworking of Romeo and Juliet, the video aims to create simple yet mesmerizing imagery working in harmony with the dark and beautiful pop song.” – Josh Logue
“I feel like it’s commenting on the friction between the organic / analogue and the synthetic / digital and the quest to find a meaningful connection between the two. The song is triumphant but it’s also bittersweet. I stumbled out of a sort of numbness into both beauty and gloom. And the simple fact of feeling something made me woozy and victorious at the same time.” EVES THE BEHAVIOR
After stunning performances at Laneway Festival alongside the likes of FKA Twigs, St. Vincent, Little Dragon and Banks earlier this year, EVES THE BEHAVIOR is set to rule the stage at Splendour In The Grass 2015.
EVES THE BEHAVIOR* unveils the mesmerising film clip for ‘TV’. The Dew Process signed, twenty-year old Hannah Karydas has already captured global attention with her darkly beautiful, narrative-driven lyricism and is set to turn more heads with ‘TV’s video – a powerful and provocative imagining of her latest single.
Directed by the ARIA-award nominated Josh Logue (who has worked with Empire of the Sun, Madonna, The Flaming Lips and Death Cab for Cutie) Hannah says about the compelling clip:
“The initial concept started with the cinematic landscapes of David lynch films (circa Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive). I wanted a bunch of characters, which were created from some of my favourite literature. For example, Patrick Bateman from American Psycho. We filled a room with strong characters and then placed me in it, turning me into a character too. Welcome to my space – it is perfect for the song and a perfect introduction to what comes next.”
