Eve Black is a Chicago band that embraces chaos, contradictions, and a powerful live performance. Made up of members from very different musical backgrounds, Eve Black decided to coalesce various genres into a boiling stew of discord. Eve Black’s music is best described as a seductive blend of post punk, darkwave, & goth-rock, but they are not afraid to embrace different styles for a new song if it feels right. Formed in 2015 Eve Black are Thom Wells (Guitar), Rani Young (Vocals), Rick Osborn (Drums), Alex Manov (Bass), and Danny Robles (Keys). They build a balance of powerful progression, ethereal essence, rhythmical beats, and intriguing lyrics.
The beauty of Magicks sound is that it is as accessible as it is indecipherable. Although the Chicago native cites hip hop, rhythm and blues and shoegaze as initial influences, the end product is much more. Magicks is a high minister in the “Church of What’s Happening Now”, managing to blend a virtual primer of today’s most influential sounds into one cohesive package that actually sounds good (to even the most jaded critic). This is dreamy pop music crafted by a psychick warrior. Equal parts pleasure and challenge to the modern ear.
