Born from an unbridled urge to play pure, loud, energetic rock and roll, Seattle’s Duke Evers comprised of Josh Starkel, guitar/vox and Kyle Veazey, drums have crafted an infectious indie pop album that begs the listener to dance. Their forthcoming record, Dreams and Desires That Are Common to Youth, showcases the innate chemistry at the center of the duo’s world.

Following the success of their debut EP, 2014’s Handfull of Pennies, and their first full-length album Velvet Hips the band flirted with label life, uncovering different sides of themselves with each incarnation, before realizing their truest form was in their roots as an unrestrained duo.

There 2nd full-length album releases May 3, 2019, Dreams and Desires That Are Common to Youth is 9 tracks of pure energy. Produced by Casey Bates (Portugal. The man, INXS, MxPx), the new record is a compelling landscape of lush tones, electrified rhythms, and honest songwriting that feels both fresh and familiar. With its release, Duke Evers deliver one of the most exciting records to come out of Seattle this year, proving that intuition and independence are a force to be reckoned with.
