Boston's Luxury Deathtrap have released a monster of a single with "Evolve." "Evolve" is a dark, moody alt-rock song that slowly burns for its six minute run time. It's a little too loud to truly be a power ballad, but it's at least power ballad adjacent. It's the kind of song that is such a slow burner that you almost don't even realize when it has erupted into a truly epic burst of noise, at least until it slows back down. "Evolve" is like a less arena ready version of Placebo. This is such a huge sound for a relatively new band that we can't wait to hear more.
Guitarist Nicholas McGowan says of the new song:
“‘Evolve’ is a song that centers around growth and tells a story of a person who has found themselves in a proverbial hell and has to grow to get out. I often write songs that reflect my experience and project it on a character but it always comes back and slaps me in the face. I take an experience and create a story in second person so the audience – ‘you’ – has something to grasp on to, but it’s really about my own personal struggles with falling into a cycle that has negative consequences. My way of reminding myself of where I have been is to sing these songs.”
