EYES OF OTHERS
FRIDAY 12 APRIL | LA BELLE ANGELE
John Bryden is the man behind Eyes Of Others' self-proclaimed "Post-pub couldn't get in the club music", which really ought to be a genre as it's a bang-on depiction of the atmospherics sculpted by this Edinburgh resident. Drum machine loops and monosynth sounds allied to vocals with an ominous aura have enticed airplay from BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music and releases from labels Paradise Palms and Paris-based Mange_Moi.
Given that Eyes Of Others' output is seductively paced, it's left to a very willing band of remixers, including techno legend Andrew Weatherall, to levitate these songs to a dancefloor-ready tempo.
"Sounds like the work of a beat-driven Beta Band left alone too long in the dark, and it's great!" - The Skinny
