Indie rock outfit Evon Rose have unveiled the video to accompany their new single ‘Something More’ which was released on 22 November via Timbits Records. The video features scenes from the phenomenal short film Lacrimosa, directed by Tanja Mairitsch which boasts an impressive string of awards and nominations including three Academy Award official selections, Boston Film Festival award (Best Short Film 2017), London International Film Festival nomination (Best Original Score), amongst many others. The music video was produced by Viktor Perdula of Jewel Labs Studios who is also the producer of Lacrimosa.
Based in Vienna, Austria, Evon Rose is Jonas Skielboe from Denmark (guitar) Byron Cortes from Colombia (bass) Peter Nadasdi from Hungary (drums) lead by vocalist Andreas Schuster. With a background studying International Business in Sydney, his introduction into professional music was like stepping from the safety of the land, into a mountain rapid – turbulent, exhilarating and purely refreshing. After life delivered him a devastating blow, he felt compelled to share his music with the world and Evon Rose came to be. He immersed himself into music creation alongside international producers and in 2017, his debut album New Shores was released. The band was chosen to perform at the prestigious tennis tournament Generali Open Kitzbühel, and have performed at MMB Showcase Bucharest, Love and Peace Festival Dornbirn, and Filmfestival Kitzbühel
Influenced by acts like Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Powderfinger, Evon Rose’s music brims with reassurance. There’s a sense of overcoming that encompasses not just their sound, but in the experience the listener takes away too. Drawing parallels to the likes of Fink or Nickleback, there sound also conjures up images of The Foo Fighters through fearless exploration and self-determined freedom of expression.
The video for ‘Something More’ is a head-trip through mysterious fantasy lands, as we follow characters Milla and Theo through scenes from award-winning short film Lacrimosa. Monochromatic visuals are set against Dali-esque landscapes, as the two float through abstract settings. The band is shown playing in beautiful natural settings of forests and mountainscapes, giving viewers a window into their fiercely energetic live performance.
“Something more is truly a great song and the lyrics are thoughtful and special. We loved producing the music video, meshing up the short film Lacrimosa and the performance of Evon Rose” comments producer Viktor Perdula
Speaking of ‘Something More’ Andreas explains: “I’ve been intrigued by many spiritual beliefs which led me to dig in deeper into some of the known self-experience rituals. My inner voice always told me there is more out there and for me music was often a way to express and process the things happening in my life.”
