Edinburgh enigma Eyes of Others steps out of the woods to present his long-length debut « Elevenses » on Global Warming Records. With a sound once described as « post-pub, couldn’t get in the club music », Eyes of Others sonic style is a ghostly mix of leftfield pop and electronic dub. His melancholic productions are a reminder of a failed relationship whilst doing the dishes, celestial and conversational in equal measure. Putting pleasure first always, picking up the pieces thereafter - may this record be your lover and strife.
But Eyes of Others is not taking his first steps here. Previous releases on Edinburgh’s ‘Paradise Palms’ Records saw remixes from the late legend Andrew Weatherall and plays on BBC 6 Music help establish his signature sound. Elevenses now renders a coming of age moment as it grooves and meanders through everyday subjects in a light-hearted yet cutting fashion. Stuart Evans of Green Door Studio (Sordid Sound System, Golden Teacher) puts the finishing touches on the productions using his mixing techniques to elevate the tracks to a dubby space of their own.
The release is visually scored by the Manchester-based creative studio DRME, using original Eyes of Others footage from a remote island in the Scottish Hebrides. The record will be released as a K7 tape including 2 exclusive tracks + a limited edition hand-printed t-shirt + an original print booklet.
Global Warming Records is run by Franco-British producer and talent seeker Malcolm, who imagines and shapes each project hand in hand with his artists. Elevenses will be the label’s 15th release.
