Daily electricity to load your batteries

Artist: EVNTYD (pronounced ‘eventide’)
Who: The musical project of Julián Berdegué, an Austin, Texas-based artist who set out at the beginning of the pandemic to create a body of work all by himself, eliminating the need to rely on others and ultimately creating the music he had been hearing in his head for years.
New single: HARD ON US
Berdegué: “I wrote “Hard On Us” to openly acknowledge that I can be a little too hard on myself and those I surround myself with. My expectations for what I and others can accomplish are sky high, and I’m well aware that that level of intensity doesn’t suit everyone. The last thing I want is for my friends to feel like they too need to have lofty aspirations in order to meet some criteria of mine.”
The jingly sparks on this glossy pop ditty resonate as The War On Drugs
and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah‘s voltaic luminosity. Mellow and melodious.
Refreshing and riveting.
