What began in 2011 as a basement-party band in the pits of Boston, MA exists today as the Brooklyn garage-soul group, Evolfo. Characterized by a three-piece horn section and a connection that only old friends can share on stage, Evolfo is reputed for their live show. And yet, even with all the glitter and upbeat energy of their performance, there is darkness — an almost imperceptible stain — in the collective soul of Evolfo. Like Robert Johnson or Faust, their past dealings remain shady at times; the status of their eternal soul is debatable. They write from the other side of a vision quest, armed with unsayable truths they work to define through song. Evolfo's music is not nostalgic, but one could say that they are not afraid to dig into the past for textures that suit the tales they have to tell.
