Album: 'Emerald Green Eyes'
Label: Porcupine Records
'Emerald Green Eyes' is the debut album from the hugely talented Eva Petersen. Eva co-wrote her own songs with Will Sergeant from Echo &The Bunnymen who plays guitar, keyboard and bass on all of the tracks. The album was also produced by Sergeant.
'Emerald Green Eyes' and is a collection of eight stunning songs, including a cover version of The Velvet Underground's classic 'Femme Fatale'.
The album was heavily influenced by Eva's love of dark cinematic sounds, particularly those of Ennio Morricone, soundtracks of 60's and 70's - as well as the likes of Os Mutantes, Astrud Gilberto, Can, Daft Punk and Air.
'Sunday Love Affair' shows flickers of 'Tales of the Unexpected' and pays homage to sounds of Italian Giallo horror films of the 70's, whilst 'Little White Lies' was co-written by Eva and Guy Chambers.
Tracks like 'Jewelled Moon' and 'Too Late for Tears' call to mind of Can, Siouxsie Sioux with a hint of Roxy Music, along with that classic wall of sound guitar from Sergeant. All showcase Eva's stunning smooth-as-silk and super sultry voice.
Sergeant says ""Eva is the greatest singer to come out of Liverpool in 21st century, it's just that not many people know yet. I have enjoyed every moment on this project".
Eva was born and raised in Liverpool to a half Scandinavian family and first developed a taste for great bands on long family car journeys when her dad would play Kraftwerk, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin on the car stereo - this ignited Eva's love of music.
Eva started her first band, The Little Flames in 2004 who were signed to Delta Sonic Records. The band recorded their debut album 'The Day Is Not Today' in 2005 - they also toured the UK and Japan with bands such as The Arctic Monkeys, The Zutons and The Coral.
"Haven't heard a female voice like this since the 60s".... (Classic Rock)
