On the Rise: Evan Wright Shares New Single 'People'

The California-born, New Jersey-raised and now New York-based songwriter, Evan Wright is today sharing "People", the final advance single to be lifted from his Paste, Beats Per Minute and Brooklyn Vegan-tipped debut album, Sound From Out the Window which is set for release via Solitaire Recordings next week, on August 25, 2021. The collection of country-tinged indie psychedelia, which was recorded, mixed, performed and produced by Wright is due for physical release on December 3, 2021.

Recorded partially in Wright’s New York apartment before Covid caused him to decamp to his parents' barn in New Jersey for quarantine, Sound From Out the Window is the work of a consummate craftsman, fully in control of his sonic arsenal. “I always enjoyed recording and doing everything by myself,” says Wright. “It gives me a chance to learn something new." This determination to create something truly personal led Wright to play every instrument on the record. It also led to a lot of experimentation.

Speaking about the single, Evan says: "This song came to me as most songs do: in the form of a guitar part (You can only hear the full guitar part at the very end of the song). It’s a strange descending chromatic arpeggio part but I felt it had everything in it to be a full song. "When I’m writing, I’m always having my iPhone voice memo recording just in case it catches me singing lyrics that I would never be able to sit down and write. I always listen back to them and write down what I was singing or mumbling. It’s a song that deals with nostalgic feelings and wanting to relive old experiences again, but coming to terms that they are just fading memories."

The forthcoming debut album release from Evan Wright follows a string of early singles and the Spaghetti Western EP which found him earn a promising amount of buzz from online blogs. This full record looks to deliver on those early signs with a dazzling collection of nine tracks that is sure to please fans of Kurt Vile, Cut Worms, Andy Shauf, and the like.
