Presentation by the Music publisher Wasser Bassin and a concert by the band, Evols
Wasser Bassin began as an art gallery but ended up as nothing. Maybe it was the place, or the time, or perhaps it was simply a bad idea. Tam and Christine Fowler put their heads together and decided to give the infamous project another chance; this time in the form of a publishing house dedicated to dance music / contemporary music / experimental music / indie pop / whatever. The musical selection is eclectic, and therefore the editorial differences, either in terms of sound, or the presentation formats, are more than expected.

For this concert, Evols will play some songs from their first album with new approaches, and also present new songs to be released in late summer 2014.
Evols was formed in 2008 based on the members’ common taste for guitars and music in general. The original formation was França Gomes, Carlos Lobo and Vitor Santos, which was maintained until 2013. After they released their first album in 2010, as a guitar trio, Evols played in various areas, including the Casa da Música in Porto, the Short Film Festival, in Vila do Conde, Serralves em Festa, the Festival Milhões de Festa in Barcelos and the extinct Nasti Club in Madrid, playing alongside the American band The Dodos.
In late 2012 Evols started recording their new album. During the recording process, in 2013, they decided to add two new members to the band, in order to introduce bass and drums on the tracks that were already being recorded, and João Santos and Jorge Queijo therefore joined the band.
After a year and a half of recordings and concerts, Evols are preparing to launch their second album, to be released by the publisher Wasser Bassin.
Influenced by roots in rock and blues and the entire psychedelic culture that has been reinventing itself for more than 50 years, Evols make timeless music, far from the spotlight, but close to the people where they like to be.
