Evelyn Evelyn “Elephant Elephant” Video, Premiered on PopMatters! The Twins’ First US Tour Continues This Spring

“…their affinity for Joy Division and sirens like the Andrews Sisters is evident in their music, resulting in brooding numbers”
– Magnet Magazine

“…Palmer’s newest project may be her grandest and weirdest yet.”
– Pitchfork

“…sounds… something like the accompaniment to a Coney Island freak show circa 1862 meets Barnum & Bailey, with contemporary references to debit cards and “dickheads” sprinkled throughout.”
– Entertainment Weekly

Evelyn Evelyn was discovered by Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls, and renowned minstrel Jason Webley. The world’s only conjoined twin singer-songwriter duo are thrilled to announce the release of their debut self-titled record today! As a special treat, they’re sharing a new MP3 from the record, “MySpace,” which premiered on Stereogum earlier today. The track, a commentary on modern social networking in the vein of an 80s power ballad, includes a guest vocal contributions from Weird Al Yankovic, Andrew W.K., Neil Gaiman, Frances Bean Cobain, My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way and more. Feel free to post and share this song!

The twins showcase their varying musical influences as the songs on the record flow seamlessly through many musical genres, styles and eras. From the vaudevillian tracks “Have You Seen My Sister Evelyn?” and the quirky “Elephant Elephant” to the menacing country-tinged love ballad “You Only Want Me ‘Cause You Want My Sister” and the ukulele rendition of Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” the record could be at home in a lost Tim Burton movie or a warped sequel to the Rock Horror Picture Show.

The twins are wrapping up a European tour and will hit the road in the US later this Spring. Don’t miss your chance to be one of the first to experience Evelyn Evelyn LIVE!
