San Francisco-based duo Seventeen Evergreen are set to release their next EP, Psyentist, on December 6th after a nearly five-year hiatus. The Psyentist EP is a four-track experiment in pop sounds, and Caleb Pate explains that the reverb-heavy track "Angel," which incorporates harp strings, is a "fantasy pinnacle, a love out of reach, a delusional silver screen frozen in nothing-time. This song goes out to those unlucky in love. Dreamers finish last... or first? But still don't get him, completely."

Seventeen Evergreen's Psyentist EP will be available on December 6th, but you can download "Angels" for free here.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
