Alternative pop band Made of Eyes create a melancholy masterpiece in their latest single ‘Honesty’. Powerful lyrics layered on top of ethereal synth sounds, this single is the perfect musical accompaniment in these turbulent times.
A complementary fusion of laid back verses and catchy pop-influenced choruses, the composition of this track mimics the emotional back and forth of its lyrical content, further enhanced by strong, clear vocals. The glistening synth intro instantly transports the listener into a dream-like state, and quickly gives way to vocals with a minimalistic accompaniment, highlighting the singer’s talent. The chorus rushes in with a mystical mix of guitar, drums, and synth, creating an extremely emotive listen. As the song reaches its end, the crashing drums carry ‘Honesty’ to a memorable and empowering climax, eventually turning to other-worldly synth.
The song fades out, but the message lingers. Made of Eyes have created an anthem that will resonate deeply with any listener who has experienced distrust within a relationship.
Having completely changed direction as a band within the last year, it is evident that Made of Eyes have found their musical niche. They have had their music featured in The Scottish Sun’s music column, and Honesty was recently named ‘Single of the Week’ on BBC Radio nan Gaidheal. These are both major achievements for an up-and-coming band, solidifying their place within the Scottish music scene.
These Glasgow lads have a distinctive sound and an abundance of potential. They could easily break out into the wider British music scene with their fusion of synth and alternative pop, earmarking Made of Eyes as a band worth watching.
