Calgary psych-rockers Crystal Eyes share dreamy new tune ‘Like A Movie’

Calgary psych-rock outfit Crystal Eyes have shared their new single “Like a Movie.”

The track comes from their forthcoming sophomore album, The Sweetness Restored, out April 22nd via Bobo Integral. Today’s release sees Crystal Eyes honing in on their quintessential psychedelic sound with a jangle-pop sensibility. The dreamy tune comes packed with captivating guitars, orchestral strings, and hazy melodies.

“‘Like a Movie’ is three minutes of indie rock bliss in the artistic vein of Sharon Van Etten or Alvvays,” Crystal Eyes singer Erin Jenkins explains. “The secret to its sound is a classic Hammond organ with Leslie speakers, a kick-ass guitar solo and the backing of a string quartet that calls to mind flashbacks of Neutral Milk Hotel. If love is ‘like a movie’, how will the ending be?”

Listen to “Like a Movie” below.

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.

In addition to “Like a Movie,” The Sweetness Restored features previously released singles “Wishes” and “Don’t Turn Around.”

The Sweetness Restored 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.
