ICYMI – Eyedress has released his new album, Let’s Skip To The Wedding, alongside a bunch of great videos this month. Check out the track “Jealous” below, and a recent live version of “Can I See You Tonight?” that was featured on a Brain Dead x NTS live stream here.
Eyedress is the alias of Filipino artist Idris Vicuña, formerly lead guitarist of psychedelic indie/noise-pop band Bee Eyes. Born in 1990 in the city of Makati, Philippines. Vicuña relocated to the US with his family at the age of 6. He was raised in Phoenix, Arizona before moving to San Clemente, California at the age of 13, where he started playing bass in a Crass-influenced crust-punk band.
This is the follow up to 2018’s Sensitive G, where he relocated from Manila to Los Angeles, and shortly after was sharing stages with acts like Homeshake, Omar Apollo, Enjoy, Jasper Bones, N8NOFACE, and B Cool Aid. During his time in America, Eyedress has become a frequent collaborator with streetwear brands such as Brain Dead, X-Girl, HUF, Born x Raised, and more.
This is first album he’s created since moving to the United States. A passionate exploration of the themes of love, settling down, adjusting to life in a new city, and preparing to welcome a child into this ever changing world. Let’s Skip To The Wedding channels the uncertainty of 2020 into an eclectic collection of songs and loved up remedy for the times.
