Evy Jane is Evelyn Mason and Jeremiah Klein, who worked separately in Vancouver’s electronic scene for years before partnering up to craft incredible experimental R&B. Their self-titled debut 12” dropped a couple weeks ago and features two awesome, self-defining tracks, both devastating, moonlit slow-burners that toe a fascinating line between creepy and sexy.

“Sayso” is all minimalist, clattering backbeat, vaguely creepy synth drones bubbling up out of diffuse electronic mist; Mason’s voice is close and confessional, like a soul singer giving a back-alley performance, like Julee Cruise at Twin Peaks’ Roadhouse bar, and when she repeats “Didn’t I tell you, didn’t I tell you” it sounds almost like a threat. And its b-side “Ohso” is almost as good, as Mason takes an even more elegant stand over a skittery art-step beat. Listen.
