Water From Your Eyes plays Baby’s All Right 12/2

NYC’s Water From Your Eyes fuse post punk and dancey grooves in All A Dance, their latest release and first for DIY imprint Exploding In Sounds records. Made up of Nate Amos (This Is Lorelei) and Rachel Brown (thanks for coming), the duo has been making music under the WFYE moniker for just around two years but in that time they’ve put out an impressive amount of music–two full-lengths and several EPs–and carved out their own sonic space. Amos’ dense mixes layer ‘80s-inspired bass lines and jumpy hooks over Brown’s wandering vocals, finding fresh retro-futuristic sounds that are just as uplifting as they are introspective. Water From Your Eyes seamlessly blend elliptical rhythms with twee-like melodies–resulting in a new-wave sound that’s equal parts entrancing and charming. Their songs can clock in at over or around 6 minutes; they’re easy to get lost in. But no matter how hypnotizing the tracks may be, they never fail to keep a steady grasp on the listener’s attention. Keep an ear on them, and don’t miss the opportunity to see them live on 12/2 at Baby’s All Right, where Water From Your Eyes are performing alongside Patio for Poppies’ tour return. – Sara Nuta
