SONG PICK: Eyedress – Jealous (Video)
Dark, brooding yet with the occasional bright optimistic shimmer, “Jealous”, the new single by Filipino artist Eyedress, is purely mesmerizing. Behind the alias Eydress is Idris Vicuña, formerly lead guitarist of psychedelic indie/noise-pop band Bee Eyes.
When asked about his new song and video, Vicuña, who calls California his home, reveals:
“’Jealous’ is a song I made earlier this year about trying not to be possessive. It was also one of the first songs I recorded on my new Japanese Teisco guitar. I was really excited when I first made it because I haven’t had much time to just sit down and come up with a new riff, but that one came to me so easily. It was recorded in my bedroom in Silverlake and the video was filmed by BRVINFREEZE. We filmed on a nice sunny day in Venice beach; basically went out with my bandmate Zahara and skateboarder friend Kane The Menace and just filmed a bunch of clips of us skating around Venice beach along with shots of me and Zahara busking and performing the song live for passers-by.”
