‘Never lose the romance’ is a lyric from Mike Evin’s new song, “Recovering Romantic”, but it’s also a reflection on why he keeps making music.
He has been steadily building a loyal following across North America and beyond for over ten years, yet his new music has the feel of an artist still out to discover something fresh and honest and connect with a wider audience.
“Recovering Romantic” has an undeniable groove, rich with Afro-Latin drums, percussion and a catchy syncopated piano hook. The performance is organic, a throwback to when they made danceable pop music without the aid of computers. The lyrics capture the vulnerability, danger and beauty of falling in love. It was written in New Orleans, where Evin was living for a spell.
Produced by Howie Beck (Charlotte Day Wilson, River Tiber) the track manage to sound contemporary, classic and elusive all at once. Listen now!
