"We chose the name of a Siouxsie and the Banshees song that our singer Amy and I love," says Neva Chiva, bassist for Eve White Eve Black. "It's an aggressive and loud song that captures you with its insane howling by Miss Sioux." The title is also a reference to the multiple personalities displayed by a woman in the book and film The Three Faces of Eve .
The New Wave-inspired group plays melodic hard rock to punk rhythms, often juiced up with proggy keyboards. The four-piece says they draw their inspiration from bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees and the Cure.
