Water From Your Eyes – “14” [Video]

| |

Water From Your Eyes have released a new single and video “14,” the latest preview from their forthcoming album and Matador debut Everyone’s Crushed, out this Friday May 26th.

A crescendo of swelling strings, pizzicato and electronic drone moving around a cyclical vocal refrain of “How many is 14?,” 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 will support Interpol on their UK dates in May. In June, they’ll embark on a run of 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 and November. Find a complete list of upcoming dates below.
