Water From Your Eyes have taken on recent touring companions Interpol’s track “Something Changed” as part of the latter’s ‘Interpolations’ project, which sees songs from Interpol’s latest album ‘The Other Side Of Make-Believe’ reimagined by different artists.

Taking the original’s punch-drunk piano shuffle and brooding vocals and subjecting them to an expertly wielded sonic and rhythmic sledgehammer, the interpolation adds vocals from Water From Your Eyes vocalist Rachel Brown. “The idea was to invert the tone of the song, like a photo negative,” says Water From Your Eyes’ Nate Amos, “reframing change from something foreboding into something encouraging – as well as creating a conversation between Paul and Rachel in order to place the thoughts externally rather than internally.”

The Water From Your Eyes Interpolation reimagines the Interpol track with fierce, abrasive injections, adrenaline-fuelled percussive beats and this kaleidoscopic structure. The usual chaotic charm of Water From Your Eyes combines with the mesmeric Interpol tones and the result is vivid and consuming.

The track joins recently released interpolations from Makaya McCraven (“Big Shot City”), Jeff Parker (“Passenger”) and Jesu (“Toni”), with Daniel Avery’s contribution to follow

Water From Your Eyes recently performed three songs from their critically acclaimed new album ‘Everyone’s Crushed’ for Bandcamp Live. Joined by additional guitarist Al Nardo, the band shred through album highlights “Barley”, “Out There” and “True Life”. The performance is followed by a conversation with journalist Shaad D’Souza.
