EVVY has exactly two tracks to her name, and with them has made a pretty good case for why you might want to pay attention to this mononymed New Yorker.
Got Me Movin’ is refreshing yet accessible, catchy but layered, and if you’re anything like me, it’s the kind of song you’ll want to listen to on repeat, at first with an admiring head bob, but soon enough with a flawless lip-synch and fully committed dance routine performed in your bedroom, sans pants.
She shows a few signs of her newcomer status — the mixing isn’t perfect, and the vocals could benefit from a little more variety in delivery — but much more than that, EVVY shows promise. Immensely satisfying, danceable promise.

There are days I open my mouth and all that
Comes out is apologies. Days when I’m sorry
But you can’t fucking touch me.

I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”
