Montréal-based artist, EV BIRD‘s EP ‘Puff Piece’ has been out just under a month and has already been tipped by the likes of FADER, Stereogum and Exclaim.
Sonically, the EP seamlessly ties together the worlds of slacker-rock, jazz, prog, hip-hop and R&B, slipping into a world also occupied by the likes of Mac Demarco, Yellow Days and HOMESHAKE. It’s a smorgasbord of genres that Ev molds into a sound that feels equal parts instantly familiar while refreshingly new.
Speaking about the release, Ev explains:“Puff Piece is an assortment of songs written and recorded at home over the last couple of years, which I’m very excited to share. The album started with a handful of guitar or piano ideas that I built up over time and shaped to my liking. The lyrical content on the album I think was a product of the time when things were uncertain and looking grim. It all came together though after teaming up with Noah Rubin and Boldy James, both of whom were a pleasure to work with.”
