Evans Blue, ‘This Time It’s Different’ – Song Review

Evans Blue 'This Time It's Different'
Evans Blue

Canadian band Evans Blue are set to release their fourth studio album later this year and their new single ‘This Time It’s Different’ is generating a lot of buzz — and for good reason.

The track, which hits iTunes on Oct. 4, begins with a haunting piano piece that lingers throughout the song. It kicks into high gear with heavy riffs and crashing cymbals. Frontman Dan Chandler shows his skills with a balance of some screaming but mostly melodic vocals.

The singer delivers the tune’s chorus with authority: “Destroy my pain / Then capture life again / Destroy my shame / Can’t live my life this way /Go / Let Go / And capture life again.”

His hasty deliverance of the lyrics in the verses is impressive and it has a certain harmonious and poetic flow:

“I’m giving up / I’m living but weak / I’m hearing voices from shadows inside me / I never sleep / My eyes are too focused / Too hopeless / Too broken / Too open / to notice.”

The new album follows the band’s self-titled 2009 disc. In a press release, Chandler says,“With the last record, we were writing songs before I even met the guys in person, really fast. Since then, we’ve grown a ton as a band: the chemistry between each member, the relationships, and the trust we have developed with each other.”

He goes on to say, “I think people will hear a big difference between this record and the last one; the album has a lot to say this time around, and it comes from every one of us in the band.”
