Rantings of Eva 

Lowering the Curtain on Memphis

With the recent release of its EP, Lowering the Curtain on Memphis, Rantings of Eva has taken its tenured status to new heights in the past few months, playing to random and pleasantly pleased crowds at festivals and special events.

The optimistic reaction is surely coming from a mixture of its live shows and the stellar set of tunes found on the EP, which fans of the band have been anxiously awaiting for quite some time now. The collection of recordings oozes with an eclecticism that shines light on the band's diverse nature. It's the kind of rock that easily fits into the "alternative" genre, yet you may ask yourself why you're not hearing it in regular rotation on commercial radio.

Even though the band has been around for roughly six years, this EP marks the first time it's released any studio recordings. Making the decision to release an EP as opposed to a full-length LP wasn't an easy task, since the band has accumulated so much material. When asked how the band members decided, singer Ryan Flanagan says, "We thought it would anticipate our full-length by releasing some [old] songs ... and mixing them with a couple of newer tracks." So what the hell took so long for an EP in the first place? "We weren't confident enough in our earlier material to release it. We were waiting for the right songs to come along." And come along they have. Flanagan also says the LP should be expected as early as this summer since the band plans to get back into the studio very soon.

You can catch Rantings of Eva at 11 a.m. Thurs., March 15, at the Georgia Tech Student Commons Center or Sat., April 21, at Vinyl with James Hall.
