about

Three ladies sing, their melodies enchant to the groove of the band. Horns push, strings sweeten up. The Everettes bring back the nearly forgotten vibe of 60s girl groups to the present and they do it with their very own charm. Clearly inspired by Northern Soul, Stax and the latest neo soul revivals, the Berlin based combo is not stating the big question of genre though – they just rather create what they love: wonderful songs, to which you want to hear the vinyl crackle and dance across the allnighter floor.

After compelling performances at British scooter rallies, the Baltic Soul Weekender and even Lollapalooza, The Everettes will now release their self-titled first album in May. It contains no less than 14 original tracks, mostly recorded live and through analogue gear, with alternating lead and backing vocals by Jess Roberts, Katharina Dommisch and Laura Niemeyer.

The band emerged from Berlin’s former soul darlings The Floorettes, who were popular also beyond the scene and even caused a stir in Japan with their album 'Pocket Full of Soul' in 2012. Five of those band members are still involved, two of the singers joined since then. Thereby the sound also got more rooty and grown-up and the three front women complement each other very well in their vocals. While British northern soul Jess, who already released solo singles with Acid Jazz Records, delights with her contagious power, original Berliner (and full-time nursery teacher) Laura soothes with warm soulful tones and Katharina, just as in the previous band, reminds the listener of the likes of Carole King or Laura Nyro with her gentle and captivating voice.

In studio The Everettes worked with Robbie A.J. Moore and Sam Vine, who also produced the latest album by Jesper Munk among others. Thereby it was all about capturing the most of the magic from playing together in a live setting, instead of trying to bring the tracks to too much perfection. This undisguised freshness is also the ultimate feature of the nine or more musicians at their concerts. You should definitely see them!

Track Name: Lost And Found
Changing nothing means nothing will change
And so goes my love life time and again

I keep wondering what’s going wrong now
As another man walks out the door
And I can’t help but thinking love’s over
As I pick myself off the floor

But then along you came to save the day
To show me some good love and I learnt to say:

That not every man can’t be trusted
That not every man breaks your heart
And I feel so alive every new day
With your love and this brand new start

I was so lost until you came into my life to change it
I was so brokenhearted, but you put the pieces back together
And you made it whole again, heart again
Feeling like I could start again
Waiting for change is like waiting for rain
’Cause it comes again and again

What a revelation your love’s shown to me (you’ve shown to me)
All through your kindness it was meant to be

I‘m so glad that I went through the downtimes
’Cause this love that we have is for real
And these feelings I have were all true
And I don‘t know how I would make it without you

I was so lost until you came into my life to change it
I was so brokenhearted, but you put the pieces back together
And you made it whole again, heart again
Feeling like I could start again
Waiting for change is like waiting for rain
’Cause it comes again and again

Lost and found
Lost and found
Lost and found
Track Name: Looking For Love
I’m ready and willing for love
(But she never finds what she wants)
I’ve been looking for it everywhere
(When you look you know it’s never there)

I know there’s someone for everyone
So many, so many, so many someones

I’ve been searching for so many years
(And she never thought of giving up)
No I know there is someone to love me
(But she never knows who it’ll be)

When will it find me? (Never? Will it ever?)
When will true love find me?

I know there’s someone for everyone
So many, so many, so many someones

I’m still waiting and looking for love
(But she never finds what she wants)
I’ve been looking for it everywhere
(Doesn’t mean for you it’s never there)

When will it find me? (Never? Will it ever?)
When will true love find me?

When will it find me? Will true love find me?
When will it find me? Will true love find me?
When will it find me?
Track Name: Things You Do
The day you left me you said you can’t explain
Love’s not an easy game
I know you’re sorry, but it will never heal
The thought you and me were real

You wanna care for me as a friend, you better stop
Whenever you see me you should turn around
There’s no way out
Baby please stop doin’ the things you do

Stop doin’ the things you do
Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you

You ask me if I‘d like to go out with you
Though you broke up
Boy you had your chance and one smile won’t ease
The pain that I got

Don’t you see it’s making me sad, you better stop.
Soon you’ll have a new girl and do not care
Why should I be there?
Baby please stop doin’ the things you do

Stop doin’ the things you do
Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you
Stop doin’ the things you do
Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you
Stop doin’ the things you do
Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you
Stop doin’ the things you do
Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you

Don’t you see it’s hurting me bad, you better stop
Soon you’ll have a new girl and do not care
Why should I be there?
Baby please stop doin’ the things you do

Stop doin’ the things you do
Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you
Stop doin’ the things you do
Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you
Stop doin’ the things you do
Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you
Stop doin’ the things you do
Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you
Track Name: Are You For Real?
Do, do I, do, do, do I?
Do, do I, do, do, do I?
Do, do I believe that your love is real?

You’re tryin’ your best to convince me you‘re a real man
You’ve gotta work a little harder than that
Try your best to make me understand
I have believed before and I said no more

Heartbreakers, no, no, no!
I want a real love so, so, so!
So only come on if you think that you're the one
I want a 2 point 4 and a house on the hill

Do, do I, do, do, do I?
Do, do I, do, do, do I?
Do, do I believe that your love is real?

I‘ll give you half a chance and after that I’m gone (I’ll be gone)
There’s no use sticking ’round when you know what you want
I’ve got a lot of things in life I wanna do
Ao if you‘re in then it’s on and I‘ll do them with you

Do, do I, do, do, do I?
Do, do I, do, do, do I?
Do, do I believe that your love is real?

I’m talking ’bout some heartbreaking hurricane, sons of a gun
The kind that like to love you crazy, quick and run
You’ve gotta show me baby that you‘re not one
I have to believe your love is real

If you can‘t give me that then I won‘t stick around (round and round)
If you make one mistake I’m gonna go to ground (to the ground)
I’m sick of little boys that only mess around
I want a big strong man with his feet on the ground.

I’m talking ’bout some heartbreaking hurricane, sons of a gun
The kind that like to love you crazy, quick and run
You’ve gotta show me baby that you‘re not one
I have to believe your love is real

Do, do I, do, do, do I?
Do, do I, do, do, do I?
Do, do I believe that your love is real?

Do, do I, do, do, do I?
Do, do I, do, do, do I?
Do, do I believe that your love is real?

Do I do?
Do I do?
Track Name: Want To Stop
It’s a feeling I can’t hide
When I see you again
Making me smile, but even I can’t deny
Yes I know I’m doing wrong
But what shall I do?
Maybe too late
Or maybe I’m just afraid

Ooh I wanna stop
Ooh I wanna stop me seeing you
But I cannot stop
No I cannot stop this thing with you

It’s the way you talk to me
You know I enjoy
But you will decide everytime, I know
This is never gonna change
You will stay with your girl
And that’s up to you
But I don’t wanna lose you too

Ooh I wanna stop
Ooh I wanna stop me seeing you
But I cannot stop
No I cannot stop this thing with you

Ooh I wanna stop
Ooh I wanna stop me seeing you
But I cannot stop
No I cannot stop this thing with you

Yes we know it’s not right, is it you who’ll decide?
We could quit, you could leave, I could walk, but I don’t
So we stay and deceive those who trust and believe
We don’t wanna break that, but don’t wanna lose this too

Yes we know it’s not right, is it you who’ll decide?
We could quit, you could leave, I could walk, but I don’t
So we stay and deceive those who trust and believe
We don’t wanna break that, but don’t wanna lose this too

Track Name: Leave Me Alone
Don’t get it, what happened
Is that you I got to know?
Can you explain that
You make me so mad
It’s enough, you gotta go

You said you love me
You know what this means
If I listened to my friends
I wouldn’t pick up my heart with my hands

I will survive it, but I must admit
It takes time to feel alive
Should I feel lonely
You’re not the only one who’ll come into my life

Yeah I hate to, to think of you
But the pain will subside
Then I can dream again at night

Please leave me alone
Don’t call me as your own
Pack your bags, take the next train
Your words are driving me insane

Please leave me alone
Don’t call me as your own
Pack your bags, take the next train
Your words are driving me insane

Please leave me alone, alone, alone.
