Evan Spade's self-titled E.P. is a pop-rock, easy listen. With pop-writing success like Butch Walker, I'd imagine Spade in the same formulaic school. His songs are extremely polished, and come across like a mastered musical equation. Each instrument seems well placed and finished with a sonic gloss.
Spade's tenor vocals are clear and understood as he moves from strong rock choruses, to floating falsetto. Everything he sings seems to stick in your head. Especially in NYC and Joyride, Spade sculpts his 3.5 minute pop-rock songs most carefully.
It's a true LA sound coming from a Texan. Whether as a solo artist, or writing for other artists, i'm sure we'll be hearing more from Evan Spade.
RATING: 3.5 of 5 stars
