Katherine Williams, better known as simply EVIE, has just dropped her first single for the year, ‘Swinging On The Balcony’.
The young Brisbane-based songwriter brings a simple, but effective, touch to the dark-pop influenced track that nods to Lana Del Rey, Mazzy Star and Joni Mitchell, and highlights EVIE’s striking vocal warmth.
Recorded in Brisbane with Finley Miller and Andrew Knight on mixing and mastering duties, the song is "about letting go in different stages," she says. "Getting used to your own company again. It also holds a sense of hopefulness, as if... if things were to go back to the way they were, I wouldn’t have fought it.”
For the single’s music video, EVIE put together footage filmed in Brisbane and also Los Angeles with Hollie Warner, while also playing a part in production and direction herself.
