Evans joined YACHT in 2008 after sharing a "mystical experience" with collaborator Jona Bechtolt and has recorded four albums, namely See Mystery Lights, Shangri-La, I Thought the Future Would Be Cooler, and Chain Tripping with Bechtolt. She also appeared as a guest on YACHT's third album I Believe in You. Your Magic Is Real. Known for her androgynous onstage persona as a performer, she has been called a "neo-Annie Lennox" by The New York Times. NPR music journalist Bob Boilen has referred to her as "one of the most striking performers I've seen in a rock band".
In addition, Evans is a journalist and author of Broad Band: The Untold Story of the Women Who Made the Internet. With a popular science and culture blog titled Universe, hosted by National Geographic's Scienceblogs network, her essay for Universe "Moon Art: Fallen Astronaut" was anthologized in The Best Science Writing Online 2012. She also writes for Vice, The Guardian, Wired and Aeon. In August 2013, she became the editor-in-chief of OMNI Reboot, a new online version of the science magazine OMNI. She is the former Futures Editor of Motherboard, Vice (magazine)'s technology and science website.
