Water From Your Eyes Share New Track “Track Five”

Taken From Forthcoming LP “Structure” out August 27th on Wharf Cat Records

The new LP from Water From Your Eyes, the New York duo composed of Nate Amos (he/him) and Rachel Brown (they/them), is set for a release almost exactly a month from today. Entitled Structure and out via Wharf Cat Records on August 27th, the album has so far received a hugely positive reception, with the lead single “‘Quotations” being selected as the best song of the week by Stereogum, landing a spot onAll Songs Considered, and recognized as one of the 27 Best Songs of The Year So Far by NPR Music. Now, the group are returning with their final single from the record, a track called “Track Five” (which in the band’s typically esoteric style is actually the new album’s 6th track), that was premiered via The FADER and streaming in full below.

Water From Your Eyes produce and craft these enriching ensembles with this stirring momentum. This outfit will stop you in your tracks, “Track Five” commences with this focus on the vocal melodies aggressively challenging the input of silence, with just two parts being the first focus the ambiance starts with this expressive and emotional influence but this unpredictable turn soon faces the exploration. Before long this surging synth ryhthm engulfs the atmosphere and allows this experimental angular attack take to the soundscape. The influx of bold textures, immersive patterns and this soaring intrusive energy merge to manipulate the visionary world of “Track Five“. As we’ve said before, Water From Your Eyes are easily one of the most driven and compelling outfits’ around right now. The duo have such a dynamic range to their vision and their latest release proves just that, their forthcoming album is destined to be one of the most impressionable of this year.

“I get really lost in this song when we perform it,” explains Brown. “It’s so easy to get lost in. Someone once said it’s like dancing through the fallout of a nuclear power plant. I think they were on to something. This song is also a bittersweet one. I think this whole album might be bittersweet. I remember writing this song right after someone in my life left. For me, this song always feels like watching someone walk away as you realize the mental image of the last time they looked in your direction has already faded. 

“To me, the song is both melancholy and out of control. I felt that the video needed to have an abandoned industrial feeling to convey the pining for what has been lost in sharp contrast with a chaotic chromatic dance party that digs into the welcomed apathy of letting everything go. We shot it at an abandoned building out behind JFK that I had seen from the highway on my way to Far Rockaway the week before, by the old Red Hook grain terminal, and in the hallway of my apartment. It was a real fun time hanging out and creating with some of my best friends and also I learned that there are lizards by JFK which is a very exciting development for me.”
