are a British art rock band that formed in late 2007. They originate from Tynedale, Kent and Guernsey and reside in Manchester.
The band have released two albums to date – 2010’s Man Alive and 2013’s Arc – and have been widely critically acclaimed. Their work was shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize and received three nominations for the Ivor Novello Award.
Everything Everything are noted for an extremely eclectic and dynamic style, with complex song construction and dense, detailed lyrics sung in falsetto by Jonathan Higgs. While nominally an alternative rock band with outright pop stylings, the band uses production and rhythmic approaches closer to those of contemporary R&B, glitch pop and electronica (including heavy use of laptop programming and processing) and songwriting approaches similar to those of progressive or psychedelic rock. Critic Paul Lester has compared Everything Everything’s sound to “a riot in a melody factory” and compared them to “Timbaland if he cocked an oblique ear to Yes”.In the Guardian, Mark Beaumont described the band as “the most intricate, streamlined merging yet of math rock’s arch complexities, electronica’s 80s obsession and hooks made from mobile phone interference.”
The band’s debut album Man Alive (produced by David Kosten) was released on 30 August 2010 and was preceded by a reissue of the single “MY KZ, UR BF” which was re-released on 23 August 2010, debuting on the UK Singles Chart at number 121. The album was then released a week later, debuting on the UK Albums Chart at number 17.
In May 2011, Everything Everything performed at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Carlisle.
On 17 February 2015, the band released the single “Distant Past” with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 naming it as the Hottest Record in the World. The band’s third studio album, “Get To Heaven” is due for release on 15 June 2015.
