As a powerful teaser for their new album Black Light White Dark, due out in early 2019, London's ethereal alt-rock outfit Evi Vine presents Sabbath featuring The Cure's Simon Gallup on bass and Peter Yates of Fields of the Nephilim on guitar. They have also unveiled a new video for this track, created by Craig Murray, known for his extensive work with Mogwai. After asking Evi for ten words to describe the video they wanted, Murray took his favourite things, horror, liquids, hair and sealife to create a semi narrative film.
As a group, Evi Vine is joined by Steven Hill, Matt Tye and David 'GB' Smith. Their music explores the dark elemental nature of the human heart, as well as environmental and post-apocalyptic themes. Sublime and haunting, they create a unique and uncompromising atmosphere with gossamer vocals and precise orchestration. Reverential, physical music, it evokes a rare experience that is beautiful, sparse and deeply intimate.
Evi Vine’s debut self-released debut album …And so the Morning Comes was heralded as "the underground gem of 2011" by Drowned in Sound, and championed by Simon Raymonde (Bella Union, Cocteau Twins) as his album of the year. Directed by Oscar winning Nick Brooks (Fight Club, The Matrix, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Evi joined with internationally acclaimed photographer Patrick Fraser to make the stunning video For the Dreamers. They released their second LP Give your Heart to the Hawks in 2015.
Evi Vine contributed backing vocals on The Mission’s 2016 album Another Fall from Grace, which hit the UK top-40 album chart, and collaborated with Michael Ciravolo on the debut album from LA-based Beauty in Chaos, involving members of The Cure, Ministry, The Mission, Cheap Trick, The Offspring, King’s X and Ice T, among others.
Sabbath is available now via online stores and streaming platforms. The full Black Light White Dark album can now be pre-ordered on vinyl or CD via the band's website with a full bundle package also available. The first pressing is limited to 300 copies worldwide
