Water From Your Eyes Share “Let It Ring”  

Out January 19th via Exploding In Sound Records’ ongoing Tape Club

Brooklyn via Chicago’s Water From Your Eyes, comprised of Rachel Brown (Thanks For Coming) and Nate Amos (This Is Lorelei, Opposites) are set to release their new album All A Dance on January 19th via Exploding In Sound Records. Now they are sharing the record’s latest single, “Let It Ring”, following previous singles “We’re Set Up” and “All A Dance”.

GoldFlakePaint shared, “‘Let It Ring’, a six-and-a-half minute expansion of their sound that needles its way in to your consciousness with its repeated, rudimentary composition. Never once pausing for breath, the track is a groove-laden delight, the still-subtle bed of beats and gentle bass providing the lapping undercurrent for Rachel Brown’s plaintive, perfumed voice to glide above, as quietly intoxicating as ever before.”

The band’s use of electronic pop and dance music is strewn with deep grooves, and hypnotic beats, channeling the best of 80’s post-punk and 90’s dream pop in the process. Brown’s beautiful vocal melodies sit perfectly in the mix, creating a human element to the otherwise mechanical explorations of Water From Your Eyes. Their songs are winding and rhythmically driven, dance pop with a brilliant post-punk shimmer.

“a truly engaging blend of dance music, pop, and post-punk. Despite the track’s lengthy run-time, it never loses its focus, adding more and more layers to build until they begin to fade away at the track’s climax. If nothing else, “All A Dance” certainly cements Water From Your Eyes a group to watch in the coming months.” – Uproxx

“”We’re Set Up” is the track that would pull you onto the dance floor or at least turn wherever you’re listening into the neon-hued dance floor of your dreams. It’s one of those moments where you can close your eyes and let your wildest fantasies take over, the single carrying you away from the darkness of the everyday to somewhere far, far away, a place secretive and secluded … It’s magic.” – The Grey Estates

“‘We’re Set Up’ might well be WFYE’s most adventurous and invigorating cut to-date, a broad stroke of motorik pulses and dance-led undertones that feels wildly compelling throughout. Infectious and beautifully poised, there’s something of a confident swagger here – and it’s well justified, the track rolling on for more than six jubilantly-crafted minutes, a vivacious, née vital, next-step from the ever-promising pair.” – GoldFlakePaint


Water From Your Eyes is a pop/dance project created in July 2016 by Nate Amos (Grandpa Bay Recordings, Opposites, This Is Lorelei) and Rachel Brown (Thanks For Coming). The band’s eponymous debut exhibited influences ranging from New Order and Talking Heads to Deerhoof and Stereolab. The full-length Long Days, No Dreams expanded upon these influences but incorporates elements of soft rock, 70’s album pop, and alt-country, while their latest release finds the pair adding bits of post-rock, indie pop, and soundscape recordings. The duo consistently leaves the listener to dance in familiar but uncharted territory. The music itself is composed and performed by Amos, while the vocals are written collaboratively and performed by Brown. The pair live and eat lots of Chinese food together in Brooklyn, NY.
