The elegant cover of Tomorrowland with its black and white photography makes you wonder whether it is from 1961 or 2021. Kevin Mitchell aka Bob Evans seems to love the sixties, and the eleven songs that make up this sixth solo album do not attempt to hide his love for the past. The album's first track, Born Yesterday, sets the scene with its sunny melodies that evoke The Beatles as well as more recent inspirations such as Crowded House and the Go-Betweens. We'll never know if the Bob Evans of Kevin Mitchell's imagination shares any affinities or influences with the famous Hollywood producer who died recently (producer of Polanski's Chinatown and Coppola's The Godfather, among others). In any case, Kevin Mitchell cultivates this pleasant dose of schizophrenia by projecting himself into Bob Evans, explaining that he chose that name because he was wearing a t-shirt with the name written on it that day... Regarding the album, Mitchell declares that it's probably his most electric project: “I think this is the most electric guitar I’ve played on a Bob record. I pretty much had an electric guitar in my hand for every song”. This record, although recorded in the midst of a global pandemic, sounds strangely fresh and joyful, one might even say euphoric. It's a good escape from a sad reality, a reinvention of a life, a time: that of Bob Evans, far from all of today's problems. Concrete Heart, the first single, on which Kevin/Bob sings with accompaniment from Stella Donnelly, sums up this pop philosophy: the power of a song to erase reality for a moment. In the video clip, we find a good old Australian pub... Tomorrowland is an invitation to imagine a brighter tomorrow, and why not! © Yan Céh/Qobz
