Calgary psych-rock/dream-pop outfit Crystal Eyes have announced their new album, The Sweetness Restored, out April 22 via Bobo Integral. As part of the announcement, they’ve shared a video for their new single “Wishes.”
Crystal Eyes is made up of singer/guitarist Erin Jenkins alongside a revolving cast of musicians, which currently features Jordan Tettensor, Joleen Toner, Will Johnson, and Paul de Andrade. Their upcoming album is a “feel-good self-help record for the age of existential dread,” the band explains.
You can really hear that on “Wishes,” where Crystal Eyes channel both happiness and sadness into a dance-worthy, trippy tune. The accompanying video falls “somewhere in between Alice in Wonderland and Wizard of Oz,” according to a release.
Watch the video for “Wishes” below.
“‘Wishes’ is a song about the spiritual act of wishing as a form of the creative process, and the ultimately delicate and complicated relationship between dream and reality,” Crystal Eyes’ Jenkins explains. “It’s also a song about faith and redemption. Although we will experience loss and pain, we always have the promise of a new wish.”
The Sweetness Restores is a collection of ten tunes that weave in and out of genres with ease. From new wave to psych-rock to shoegaze, this album’s got a little bit of everything.
