‘Sorry Than Safe’ - Loughrea’s EVØKE release new single

Mon, Jul 26, 2021


‘SORRY THAN Safe’, the new single from Loughrea indie-pop/trad fusion trad band, EVØKE, represents possibly their boldest statement to date.

The song’s title, a play on the old saying ‘Better safe than sorry’, reflects the quartet’s attitude to mixing genres and experimenting with their sound. ‘Sorry Than Safe’ draws inspiration from American singer Matt Maeson; soul and jazz legend Nina Simone, particularly her classic, ‘Feeling Good’; while also throwing in some Irish influences via the banjo.
