The Eversons are a new band from Wellington, New Zealand, who released a free EP on Lil’ Chief Records earlier this year. They give nods to smart, 60s-inspired pop like the Modern Lovers (heavy use of call and response back up vox), but are also clearly inspired by 90s ‘indie guitar’ bands like Pavement and Weezer. Their lyrics are clever and often dripping with self-deprecating wit. This is best displayed on their single, I’m a Conservative.
