Listen Up - We Were Evergreen
Pop music these days (all music really) has gotten the sometimes negative connotation that it is too sexual, too loud, and bad for our kids to hear. And you know what? This isn’t really too far off. Think of what is played on Top 40 radio. It isn’t so bad for most of us, but what about the younger members of our communities? Would you play Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” for your baby cousins? Would you let a niece or nephew listen to Usher’s “Scream”? If you were a parent and you had a young child, you certainly wouldn’t let them listen to Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake”, right? (FOR SO MANY REASONS).
Well, not all pop music is like this. Granted it’s the norm, but there are people out there doing something different.
Enter We Were Evergreen.
WWE (not the wrestling people) is a Parisian trio that is making the most friendly, inviting pop music ever. Really though. It almost sounds like they are making it for kids, only you can enjoy it at any age.
Everything about WWE is cute. The music. The lyrics. The instruments (kazoos? AWESOME). We Were Evergreen are just about the cutest pop group out there (well, Karmin is pretty high up there, but WWE is giving them a run for their money)
Think She & Him, only cuter. And just…more poppy and upbeat. If you can really think of something like that.
If you can’t, just take a listen.
Everything cute aside (THEY USE A XYLOPHONE!!! YESSS!!!), the music is just good. Plain and simple. Innocent or not, We Were Evergreen is spectacular, and I applaud them for fearlessly doing something so different, and for doing it so well.
