EVÎN’s music stands for a unique listening experience with its versatile soundscapes. While the artist herself called her work ”experimental”, it actually feels much more familiar than one would expect from such an exploratory approach.
From R&B to Soul and even instruments from all over the world, EVÎN is creating a bridge between the present moment, her past and all the places she has been as an artist so far. All of these elements are carefully integrated in her individual way of singing and are cropping up in her songs in different forms.
What becomes clear while going through EVÎN’s second EP, It Wasn’t Even For You, is how personal this project is for her. The six tracks paint a diverse picture of what she represents. In her writing, EVÎN is very open about her beliefs and values. The EP discusses themes like manifestation and self-empowerment, and aims to bring hope to those who struggle.
Further proving the amount of thought poured into It Wasn’t Even For You are the stunning visuals that come along with it. Assisted by German/Turkish stylist Esma Patkavak, EVÎN shot lively music videos in the vibrant streets of Istanbul, a city that’s full of character and history.
The entire EP project is just phenomenal—from the poetic lyrics behind each song, to the way their meaning is depicted in the music videos—showing that Evîn has remained true to her vision and managed to come out of it with a product that speaks for itself.
