October and The Eyes Unleash Single ‘Spiral’

Aotearoa-born and now London-based industrial-pop artist October and The Eyes dives deep into wild psych-rock territory on new single ‘Spiral’, their first release since late 2020's Dogs and Gods EP. Sounding like an echoed-out apparition in the midst of locked-in heavy guitar riffage that wouldn't feel out of place on a Mainliner / High Rise record, the red hot "exploration of lost friendship" was originally written and produced with October’s best friend Oliver Johnston aka Hugo Jay, who joined the artist on their shift abroad. That adventure looks to have already borne fruit, as October and The Eyes will be supporting Yves Tumor on the US innovator's March UK tour — wrap your ears around ‘Spiral’ below...

“‘Spiral’ is about a problematic friendship, where you never quite know where you stand at any given time... It’s about a constant pendulum between being pulled in and then spat out again, going round and round in circles until you’re left dizzied and jaded by the whole thing. The song is pretty scathing and somewhat of a waving fist. I wanted the song to sound in constant flux, with reverberating percussion and vocals that feel like they could spiral out of control at any moment.” — October and The Eyes


‘Spiral’ is out now on major streaming services via KRO Records.
