Underwater Peoples is proud to announce the upcoming release of “No Matter What”, the debut EP from Evan Ønly. Drawing its inspiration from classic “future vintage” synth pop pioneers such as Pet Shop Boys, La Roux, and David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance”, the “No Matter What” EP is a highly-evolved synth rock record. Produced by Ice Choir’s Kurt Feldman at the pristine Winter Station, these six songs are personal anthems turned psychological pop. The EP is set to hit the streets in early 2014 but you get your first peek into Evan’s pop adventure now with it’s first single, the powerful title track “No Matter What”.

Pitchfork premiered the track earlier today, Larry Fitzmaurice had this to say about it:
“Family Portrait frontman Evan Brody helped co-found Brooklyn label Underwater Peoples, and he also makes music on his own as, fittingly, Evan Ønly. Brody will release his debut EP, No Matter What, in February of next year on his own label; the EP was produced by the Pains of Being Pure at Heart member and Ice Choir frontman Kurt Feldman, and its title track certainly smacks of the silvery 1980s motifs explored on the Ice Choir’s solid 2012 LP Afar”.
