Shares new single “Spiral”
Announces UK tour supporting Yves Tumor

Following the release of her debut EP ‘Dogs and Gods‘ in 2020, New Zealand-born, London-based singer & songwriter October and the Eyes is back with a new single “Spiral“, which is out now via KRO Records. October will also be playing a UK tour with Yves Tumor this March. 

Speaking about the new single, October said “‘Spiral’ is about a problematic friendship where you never quite know where you stand at any given time – 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.”

These fierce and intense piercing tones chime immediately and share how raw this piece is, the array of brash, angular attributes commence this mighty ensemble. The complex low-end breaks through this already expansive wall of sound to bring yet another layered density to the track. October and The Eyes have this flawless ability to create such colossal landscapes, crafted from the get-go, the expansive world is enough to captivate. When the delicate, lustrous vocals join the exploration and soar above the crushing tones, that’s when you appreciate how volatile this immersive experience is.

Spiral” brings that song title to life within its hypnotic spiral-like rhythms which loop throughout and create this addictive influence. As the abrasive course takes on more power, the track transitions to allow psych tendencies to provoke the journey and leave such a lasting impression.
