Several weeks ago, Absolutepunk.net introduced you to the completely revamped Envoi, a female fronted powerhouse that has been pushing its way into the public eye, causing plenty of blog buzz as it goes.
“We’re all pretty experienced but at the same time unproven,” says singer Maddie Finn who fronted an eponymous project up to joining Envoi after the departure of their former vocalist. She’s not the only one with experience. Bassist Mat Colwell once held the position of bassist in Cleveland Pop-Punk favorites Call It Fiction while several other members formally took post in various metal-core bands in the Cleveland local scene. There’s more than enough talent to go around.
With a wide range of influences, the band still works to set themselves apart from the rest of the pack. “We want to add a distinctive texture to our music, but we want to stay a rock band. Intelligent and unique, but rock nonetheless,” says guitarist David Tirpak. And that they do. With a front woman as strong and skilled as Madeline Finn, there will no doubt be comparisons made to acts such as Paramore or VersaEmerge, but we think there is still room yet for another lady in the pack.
In the next several months, Envoi will be working on their debut release and performing shows in and around the mid western United States. Today, however, we are pleased to bring you a free download of the band’s new single “Ghost” in acoustic form. Check it out inside.
