ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Reviews and Lyrics

Chills! Neko Case and Bjork's love child... in a Tarantino film, melting my face off.
Amber Edgar

So Sam Smith got the James Bond theme tune gig – I can only assume that they didn’t hear this first or he’d have been out on his arse. A sultry storm-cloud of tune, that would sit comfortably on a Portishead / Winehouse album. Fantastic.
Honey and Bile

“Sting of a Kiss” is a spectacularly slow-burning, raw number populated by crunchy, ominous guitars and Everett’s powerful, expressive vocals. If possible, listen while staring out the window as the sun sets and nocturnal creatures come out to play."
Grey Owl Point

Sultry vocals, lush cinematic music dripping in melancholy... Dry as dragonfly wings breaking... Me like this! While I generally try not to make comparisons ... Can you say Beth Gibbons?... Repeat... Repeat.
Neil Spence

There are several reasons why one should visit Toronto, Ontario – great restaurants, the CN Tower, the Royal Ontario Museum, and a terrific music scene. And no, it’s not all about Drake, Feist, or Metric. There are dozens of emerging bands and artists to check, some of whom we’ve profiled recently (e.g., For Esmé). Another one to add to the list is Rebecca Everett. The singer-songwriter, who is originally from Victoria, British Columbia but has not established roots in the home of the Blue Jays, is getting set to release her third album, Seven Shades. The lead track is “Sting of a Kiss”. The song with its brooding, smokey, bluesy sound, has a suspenseful, cinematic quality a la Timber Timbre. It’s a song that would be perfect in either a future James Bond film or True Detective, which isn’t surprising as Everett has written music for television shows. This track is absolutely intoxicating.
The Revue

Torontonian Rebecca Everett might not be auditioning her song for the reboot of Twin Peaks but “Sting Of A Kiss” sounds like it should be place in their somewhere. “Sting Of A Kiss” creates a mood of desolation, obsession and loneliness….frankly she scares me….and I like it.
Let's Not get Carried Away

Canadian Rebecca Everett is on track with its latest EP Seven Shades. "The inspiration for the plate comes from somewhere between loss and faith," said Rebecca his latest album "mediation brings forgot, dark mysteries up to surface." One senses also frustrated undertones on the first single from the album "Sting Of A Kiss". It is deep and heavy tones that lays the foundation for the song, an electric guitar that whimsically lures, slow drums and a lethargic bass, but it's Rebecca Everett's voice that holds the song together. Her vibrant voice almost crying through the passages in the song, and it is clear that it is a loss that is the focus song.
Bands of Tomorrow

Now, THIS is a torch song. "Sting of a Kiss" smolders with sexuality and dark mystery. It's early James Bond with a southern twang....
Ride the Tempo

"The newly released single “Sting of a Kiss” is a beautiful effort that conjures up a nice dose of stylized noir imagery from the 40s and 50s, with a subtle hint of mystery evoked by the reverb drenched guitar-work. The vocals are very passionate and the emotions are laid out in the powerful lyrics.."
Dave Stepczyk

Toronto, ON based artist, Rebecca Everett has just released her new EP, “Seven Shades”, which is a five song EP featuring the single, “Sting of a Kiss”. The single shows off Rebecca’s hauntingly beautiful vocals and almost hypnotizing beat that goes along with it perfectly.
There is usually one song on an album or EP that leaves you wanting more, and the one that did this for me was the fourth song, “Mean Old Man”, it tells a story with the lyrics that makes you feel like you know the old man that she speaks of. The lyrics really give you a vivid picture of the man, which is not an easy task. I listened to this song over and over, and it never got old.
The EP comes to a close with “Everything”, the more mellow of the tracks, which showcases Rebecca’s vocals a bit more and radiates a relaxing feel with the music.
Although, the EP only consists of five songs, it is more than enough to realize that Rebecca is a very talented artist, and it has left me wanting to hear more from her.

LYRICS

Seven Shades

Seven Shades of him on my lips
It’s so amazing to have a sip of him
Ink on my skin he draws me in
And won’t let go

Seven Shades a little sugar on my hip
There you go again I can taste the words in your spit
So push me off if this world ever stops
Cuz I can’t let go

Seven Shades a haze of him
The secret country vanishes within
I close my eyes to keep him alive
Let me begin


Sting of a Kiss

Lying in wait for darkness to come
Sealing the fate that crept up from behind
The chills the danger the feverish dream
The venom is poisoning me
It’s working it’s way to my heart

Holding you close my heart’s a beating gunshot
I can’t resist your tongues razor sharp
It’s thick in my blood it can’t be undone
The venom is poisoning me
It’s working it’s way to my heart

I want nothing more
It’s you I adore
And when you hold me oh how you control me
The blood won’t stop rushing intoxicating
My heart


Tied up in a Bow

There’s me there’s you how do we get through
This murky mess to the light of what we can do
Go on, forget everything go on
Workin hard at keepin faith in the dreams you made
Do you dream to give or dream to take over
Rubbin shoulders

Everything you know
Tied up in a bow
Does it make you dig in the dirt
Does it make you scream to be heard
Does it make you feel to the bone
Does it make you hurt

Take a breath take a step hold my hand
We’ll become the trees the breeze and we’ll roam
Over mountains of stone

Everything you know
Tied up in a bow
Does it make you dig in the dirt
Does it make you scream to be heard
Does it make you feel to the bone
Does it make you hurt

There I go….again

Everything you know, oh you know
Everything you know, oh you know
Everything you know, oh you know
Everything you know, you’re told
There I go


Mean Old Man

He was a mean old man,
he had a taste for revenge
His bitter talk and when he walks a chill goes right through you
He had a crooked smile
he had a face to fool a child
And with his tricks he’d fix your fix or two, for a while

Got myself running, running….
Got myself wondering why I’m doing the best I can

Well papa’s gotta brand new bag
your weakness makes him glad
Set his sight on you and when he’s through aint nothing you can do

Got myself running, running….
Got myself wondering why I’m stuck here with this gun in my hand

I laid out my finest in superstition black
My head high my spine bent I can feel him on my back

They carried his body in the sunrise to the grave
Singing and praying that his soul they could save
His soul they could save

Everything

You can’t just walk on by me
You can’t just hello and goodbye me
This thing that you bring
This thing that you bring

Gather your thoughts take a moment
A breath of air you’re holdin
I know you see what I’m hiding
And I know you feel what I’m denying

Everything
Everything
Everything
Everything
I’d give you everything

Let’s become indivisible
I’m unequivocally yours..in

Everything
Everything
Everything
Everything
I’d give you
