The track’s pulsing beats and auto-tuned vocals might come as a surprise to those who expected Electra to follow in her father’s footsteps as a thrasher. In fact, “Evergreen” is about as far away from heavy metal as it comes.
“‘Evergreen’ shares my experiences in music and in life; constantly seeming to fail outside expectations but consciously choosing to ignore them,” Electra said in a press release. “We all have that little rebellious streak about us. Early on, I was like, ‘I want to be my own person.’ I tried to step away from the identity that was my father’s by doing something opposite musically, but authentic to me!”
Overall, the song is quite a deviation from Electra’s prior musical appearances on social media and alongside her father. During the pandemic, Dave and Electra performed a quarantine cover of The Beatles’ “Come Together”, with Electra’s showing more of a rock side to her voice.
A full-length release from Electra is scheduled for early 2022, according to the press release, with “more infectious pop” coming throughout this year.
