We Were Evergreen

Listen to Baby Blue

We Were Evergreen are an alternative indie-electro-pop band from France. The Parisian trio were born in 2008, after a new year's resolution that, for once, actually stuck. Brought together by a shared fondness for all kinds of pop music and nursery rhymes, they tell stories of small trees growing too fast, of yodelling yaks and children flying south for the winter: stories of adolescence, of things lost, then found –then lost again. There's a naïve freshness to their toy-like instruments, and their mellow-yet-uplifting choruses will inevitably get caught in your brain – just throw in some live sampling, a lot of percussions and a dash of electro, and you'll find your hands and feet joining in too.
We Were Evergreen are based in the UK and recently supported for Michael Kiwanuka, King Charles, Ed Sheeran (QAwards), Emele Sande and Charlie Simpson.
The band is going from strength to strength securing a sync on a Louis Vuitton advert soon to be released and airplay on the Radio Nova ‘Playlist A’ in France.
We Were Evergreen have also been on BBC national news and had articles in The Sunday Times as well as videos on SB.TV and Fly TV.

We Were Evergreen have recently supported Little Dragon at The Great Escape, The Wombats at Lovebox, The Guillemots busking for War Child, Soko as well as playing Wilderness ,Vintage, Secret Garden Party and Green Man Festivals.
