The Evol’ hints at “evolution”, but is also just a vowel away from alluding to evil. When flipped, the word becomes “love”.
A reversible little coinage that has us mentally juggling several ideas, and is the ideal title for the sixth album of Shaka Ponk, a band which has always made a point of have its finger on the pulse of its era; and is intent on exploring its complexity, not just displaying its firepower.
Much has happened in France since their last public appearance in September 2015. Terrorist attacks, a state of emergency, waves of migrants. Plus a rash of acute crises – political, economic, environmental – which have forced us into a collective realisation regarding a specific situation: it’s an exceptional point in History where humans, in their evolution, seem unsure whether to side with evil or love – although things are obviously not straightforward. Hence the relevance of the title, The Evol’, which keeps the issues of our time finely balanced on its two-syllable tightrope. Thus explaining the array of moods and sounds on this hard-hitting and sometimes caressing disc.
