The debut single ‘Nothing’, from Copenhagen-based indie artist Evey, is a 90’s inspired alt-pop song that deals with the feeling of being trapped and not fitting in.
“I wrote ‘Nothing’ at a time in my life where I felt completely alone and detached from everyone around me. I was desperate for someone to guide me but in the end I realised that change had to come from within myself. I really hope it will inspire others, who may be going through a hard time, to find the courage to set yourself free and ‘figure yourself out’…”
The 20-year-old singer-songwriter found the courage to write her own songs through the power of women in musical history – from the poetry of Patti Smith and Tori Amos, to the voice and roar of Alanis Morrissette and the songwriting genius of Taylor Swift.
Through her music, Evey’s mission is to create a safe space for young people to express themselves and be loud together. She explains:
“To me, writing music from the perspective of a young woman helps me deal with the many things in this world that need to change, be talked about and destigmatized – like mental health. With my music, I want to create a space for young people to speak their minds, because we all have a voice and equally deserve to be nothing less than who we are.”
‘Nothing’ is out on April 29 alongside the 100Blaa and Kasper Leegaard-directed music video that deals with the theme of the song, illustrated through what’s going on inside of Evey’s head vs. her dull reality and not being able to express her true self.
‘Nothing’ will be followed by more songs and the release of Evey’s debut-EP this summer.
