Maria DeHart’s ‘For Evelyn’ is a haunting, ethereal take on atmospheric indie pop. In certain regards, this is kind of a limited piece, but the focused, unvaried approach to the composition allows the listener to really get invested in the emotion and environment DeHart is putting forward. The united, almost singular way the vocal harmonies interact on this track gives it a distinctly choral, maybe even religious sentiment that’s very powerful. The chunky, dynamic guitars work well with the warbly, understated keys that form the piece’s sonic backbone. This is a very minimalist approach to songwriting, but surprisingly, the lack of a well-defined rhythm section doesn’t limit the song’s power. This is a neat track from a cool artist.
