Evelyn Evelyn channel vaudeville and The Sound of Music on their brand new video... with puppets, yes puppets.

Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls and Jason Webley have teamed up for the high concept, vaudevillian project Evelyn Evelyn, touted as the “world’s first and only conjoined-twin singer-songwriter duo”. The music evokes another time and place, perhaps some warped cabaret or a children’s musical theatre in Weimar Germany. Webley has described the music as sounding “like something the Andrews Sisters might have recorded if they had grown up in the circus listening to new wave music.” I couldn’t have said it better.


On their new video for “Elephant Elephant”, which we proudly premiere today, that vaudeville circus element is omnipresent, channeled through a bit of Sound of Music-esque “Lonely Goatherd” style puppet theatre.


As an added bonus, check out the MP3 for the new tune “My Space” below.
