Bottle of Evil is a project between two Lanarkshire musicians, Derek Bates (Evil Hand) and Steven McGilvary (Bottle of Steven). Both have been writing and performing with their own solo projects for many years, and Derek with his previous group, shoegaze noisters Genaro. This is the latest outing from them both and draws from many influences, whilst still maintaining its own unique sound, with elements of electro-acoustic, shoegaze, folk, ambient, soundtrack and alternative indie. To sums up... Bottle of Evil is an exercise in smashing genre norms (if you insist, we'll bill it 'shoegaze-folk' and call it even). It's a mix which creates something at once dreamy, deliberate and - perhaps - just a little bit sinister.
