Published May 17, 2016Evan Weiss, a.k.a. Into It. Over It., has made huge strides in his music on his recent release, the John Vanderslice-produced Standards. So, when the beloved Chicago-based emo/indie-rock artist swung through Toronto on his most recent tour, Exclaim! TV took Weiss to lively Alexandra Park, where a picturesque backdrop accompanied his gentle guitar melody and soft vocals. There, we captured a couple of clips of Weiss performing some of his new tracks.
On both "Open Casket" and "Anesthetic," Weiss proves the undeniable beauty of simplicity — that just an artist and his guitar can be enough — as he picks the strings and croons as the sun glints through his glasses. Watch the serene sets below.
