So my (twin) sister knows all about Evelyn Evelyn and it's cool to be able to talk about it with her... but I tried explaining it to my brother, who has no clue what EE are about... and the more I said the more confused he seemed.
It's hard to grasp, I think, no matter how you explain it, to some people who are going in to this completely cold not knowing anything about the project or the music.
It's interesting how some of you guys feel about not being able to relate to the lyrics... and as a twin myself, there are some really poignant themes, issues, feelings that may or may not be unique to the twin experience covered here. I feel like there are some truly sad moments, when you least expect. My Space - is a good example of a song that's both funny while also conveying loneliness - with the use of the internet and in general.
"You Only Want Me Cause You Want My Sister" is another good example - at face value is funny and haunting, but if you strip it down and see what it's saying... it has some really valid, and not so hard to relate to feelings by representing jealousy... it's funny to think of in a conjoined twin context, but you can place it in other contexts as well.
You have to look at the songs in multiple contexts, similar to a lot of Amanda's songs where the songs can be about multiple things.
