Water From Your Eyes have released new single ’14’.
It is a preview from their upcoming album ‘Everyone’s Crushed‘ which is out on 26th May via Matador. The single comes with a black-and-white video directed by the band’s Rachel Brown.
It follows from other recently released previews, ‘Barley’ and ‘True Life’.
The band describe the song as “a quasi-serial inkblot signifying submission to personal demons and the realization that change is both necessary and inevitable.”
On the video, Brown says: “I was largely inspired by “Meshes of the Afternoon”, “Last Year in Marienbad”, and “Spirited Away,” as well as the painting “The Triumph of Baccus” by Diego Velázquez, a favorite of Nate’s. I wanted to capture the feeling of being haunted by one’s own inner turmoils and the act of letting those conflicts go.”
Having just concluded a US tour with Snail Mail, Water From Your Eyes are supporting Interpol on their UK dates in May. In June, they’ll embark on a run of US east coast headline shows, followed in the fall by a west coast run with Melody’s Echo Chamber. The band are also confirmed for Pitchfork Festival in London, Paris and Berlin in November.
