This won’t be for everyone, but it will be for some people – which makes it worth writing about, right? Right. For those people it’s not for, please accept my apologies. Or give it a chance to grow.
Évariste Galois are from Cardiff. They’re named after a mathematician, which makes them automatically awesome in my eyes. They, like many Cardiff bands, are made up of members of other bands such as singer and guitarist Matthew who plays drums in Saturday’s Kids and guitarist Sion who sings and plays guitar also in Saturday’s Kids.
They play American inspired almost emo and pop-punk tinged alternative rock, which isn’t usually my cup of tea but which, for some reason, I enjoy here. Like Saturday’s Kids, there’s the odd mistake here and then but the songs just have a real nice feel to them which I find difficult to resist – and they’re also good live. They were also thinking about splitting up recently, but they decided against it so that’s good news.
A little while back they released a split CD with Matthew’s other band Saturday’s Kids available over here. They also have some stuff available on bandcamp, or you can listen and download below.
