Outside Eyes
Outside Eyes
Birthed in a sweaty West Philadelphia Victorian, the Outside Eyes are old friends, former roommates, neighbors and conspirators, bringing a fullness to frontman Zach Eggelston’s songs. Sleepily glowing melodies recall Roy Orbison, Elvis Costello, and T-Rex with lyrics both poignant and playful. Veteran player Todd Erk, (Hoots and Hellmouth, Birdie Busch, Auctioneer, Divers) relegated to the bass for many years, takes on two more strings ringing out brave new guitar riffs. Rachel Crowley on the skins keeps the beat solid with subterranean grooves from bassist Joshua Lennon allowing space for the songs to take hold.
Eggleston has been writing and performing music for the better part of 15 years often as a solo artist and infrequently banded together with fellow musicians for short lived romps with recent bands, Ocean City Maryland and The Last Minutes. Together the Outside Eyes back up and interpret Eggleston’s quirky song writing with bombastic aplomb, from the creepy, psychedelic singalong Dance Party From Hell, to the sweet, folky, harmonies of Foot Tapping.
Since debuting in March of 2013 the Outside Eyes seen have been seen playing frequently around the Philadelphia area. A debut album is in the works.
The Morelings
The Morelings
The Morelings began entrancing audiences with their ethereal dreamgaze in the summer of 2014. They then joined forces with Kyle "Slick" Johnson of Fancy Time Studio to record their hypnotic and shimmering debut EP, "No Sign." Released in January of this year, "No Sign" has been called "a blissful maelstrom of sound." The Morelings recently released their first official video, "Less, " directed by Bob Sweeney, which uses a monochromatic film tint framed by a dark pinhole camera perspective, invoking a timeless dreamscape. Flitting, multilayered images of vocalist/bassist Kedra, ordered estate gardens, a blooming tropical solarium, and scenes rushing past a setting sun in an anonymous train's window are all set against lush guitars and ethereal vocals. The off-hand glamour and mystery of the repeated images reinforce the song's soaring, swirling atmosphere and stay in the mind like pictures from a dream half-remembered upon waking. Amidst tour dates on the East Coast and in the Midwest, The Morelings began recording their first full-length album with Philadelphia producer Jeff Zeigler (Nothing, A Sunny Day in Glasgow).
