PREMIERE: Water From Your Eyes Announce New Album “Somebody Else’s Song,” Share “Bad in the Sun”
The latest from the Brooklyn experimental electronic duo will drop October 25 on Exploding in Sound.
For a change of pace from the endless succession of post-hardcore opuses emanating from Brooklyn label Exploding in Sound, look no further than Water From Your Eyes, the synth-powered duo of Nate Amos and Rachel Brown. While grungy bass textures familiar to the EIS discography make occasional appearances in their music, WFYE specialize in light, electro-pop ballads that are nearly trancey in their length and repetition.
With the revelation of their new album Somebody Else’s Song, the duo are sharing the album’s first single, “Bad in the Sun,” which perfectly blends their rock and electronic influences. What they call “a celebration of a bad dream,” “Sun” is an optimistic new-wavey track clocking in at a quick six-and-a-half minutes, which the band compares to a single they released earlier this year that also appears on Song:
“In some ways [‘Bad in the Sun’ is] a reflection of ‘Break’ in terms of length and composition (the two serve as the pillars of the album), but ultimately a friendlier and more approachable song. It’s definitely the closest thing to older WFYE material on the album, but there are also severe differences in approach to arrangement and pacing. Meant to be a sort of half-closer and set an exciting/ecstatic mood to be ripped down by ‘Look Again.’”
