"Evil Parts" by Kerchief is crafty post punk with deep grooves and proggy hooks

Evil Parts by 3 piece alt rock outfit Kerchief cuts a deep groove of post punk flavors with equally deep pop hooks. At it's core, the Tennessee based Kerchief is propelled by singer songwriter Britt Hill whose rock compositions are dynamic and densely crafted with cagey jagged rock progs that stair step, skipping steps along the way. Her vox blending sometimes in unison with her male counterpart is cool and sometimes askew in the best possible way. 

After ending her previous band, Vanity Theft, Hill started the then solo project Kerchief in 2014 with a self produced "Demonstrations" EP and a debut full length called "Machines And Animals" in 2015. Shows and touring followed with a rotating cast of back up musicians and two more EPs ("Corner House" 2016 and "Rinse" 2018) blending in electronic elements. Fast forward to 2019 and Kerchief is returning with their sophomore LP, "Fluke" on March 1st with the addition of brothers Tommy and Trevor Nicholson on bass and drums.
