Minnesota indie-group Early Eyes have shared a brand new single “Revel Berry.” The song is the “rambunctious younger sibling” and follow up to their previously released single “Paresthesia”.
Jake Lupen (Hippo Campus) and Caleb Hinz co-produced the tracks. In the new tunes, the band taps into modern sounds with synth-led rhythms and glitchy vocals.
Since their indie-rock 2017 debut EP Minutes, Early Eyes have become a vivacious pop group with infectious upbeat tunes.
Listen to “Revel Berry” and “Paresthesia” below.
Early Eyes also shared a live version of “Revel Berry” and a music video for “Paresthesia.”
In 2020, Early Eyes were signed onto Epitaph Records where they are now releasing their new music. With no full-length albums just yet, the group has four EPs including 2020’s Sunbathing.
Sunbathing is a five-track EP. It features “Marigolds,” ”Clarity,” and “Wonder.” Their EPs All Shades of Teal and Decorating both came out in 2018.
In other news, the band are getting ready to head out on a US tour. On tour, they’ll be supporting Hellogoodbye from September 14th to October 1st.
If you like Early Eyes, you’ve got to check out Hippo Campus, who recently released “Bad Dream Baby.” The vibrant track is punchy. It deals with topics such as the death of a childhood dog, divorce, paternal relationships and religion.
Lead singer Jake Luppen said in an interview:
“THE LYRICS ARE A STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS, DARTING BETWEEN MY COMPLEX RELATIONSHIP WITH MY FATHER, A BRITNEY SPEARS DOCUMENTARY, AND SOME OLDER MEN AT GRUMPY’S (MY FAVORITE BAR IN MINNEAPOLIS) WHO USED TO HIT ON ME. THE HOOK REFERENCES MY EXIT FROM THE MORMON RELIGION WHEN I WAS 15 AND THE ISOLATION FELT DURING QUARANTINE AND THE DEATH OF THE DOG MY MOM GOT ME DURING MY PARENTS’ INTENSE DIVORCE.”
