Duke Evers is a three-piece thunder-rock band from Seattle. The band has been around for four years, just long enough to figure out that it has two kinds of fans: Those that are totally loyal after had their faces melted with blistering licks and those that haven’t heard the band yet. It’s the band’s goal to convert the latter into the former.
Their sound is as infectious as it is precise; there isn’t a wasted beat or note in a song. It’s loud while still being dynamic. It’s kinetic, and it’s conveys import without any grandstanding or ego. Within it are traces of 80s-style art rock, reminders of 90s-style indie-rock faves, and even some late-70s style guitar-driven power-pop.
The band has been enduring a whirlwind of rising popularity since it started playing in front of real people in 2013, including showcases in New York, Italy, and headlining several shows in its hometown of Seattle.
