“Hope Music” is the new EP set for release on 4th May via Radicalis by sensational songstress Evelinn Trouble. With previously released singles ‘Monstruous’ and ‘Hope Music’ (the title-track of the upcoming EP), have received immense support from the likes of Clash Magazine, All Things Go Music, Noisey and Variance Mag have also been met with an overwhelmingly positive response from fans and media alike. Originating from Zürich, the now Berlin-based Evelinn Trouble has already gained over a quarter million Youtube views, seen support from Line Of Best Fit and her track ‘Sunset Everytime’ was named by Noisey as one of “The 33 best Swiss rock, indie and alternative songs of the year” with radioplay including Switzerland’s Radio SRF3. Trouble performed back-up vocals for Swiss export Sophie Hunger, and has collaborated with STRESS, and she has taken to the stages of The Great Escape Festival and Montreux Jazz Festival.
Influenced by great artists Frank Zappa, Nina Simone, Karon Dalton and Jimi Hendrix as influences, Evelinn Trouble’s sound begins at the intersection where Thom Yorke meets Patti Smith. Like her debut, she recorded and produced this release herself, the sonic universe being a collage of two years of home recording in several bedrooms, attics and hotel rooms across the globe – mixed in Berlin, where her nomadic spirit resides for now.
Trouble comments on her new EP: ”This kind of writing doesn’t come easy to me. Now I love it for what it is; songs about the impossibility of love, made of scraps, wrapped shiny in plastic. There is this card in Tarot called the “Hanged Man” – it became a symbol for the song ‘Prison’ to me. The card means that you are stuck in a situation and you have to wait it out. There is literally nothing you can about it, your hands are tied. You can’t move, but you want to. That creates a lot of tension, that’s why the song sounds so aggravated in places.“
