Dark Eyes

Disc review

There’s a lot of buzz surrounding this Mile End trio, and while their debut LP is not mind-blowing or anything, it’s inspired enough for said buzz to keep growing. It’s impossible not to think of Radiohead when listening to Half Moon Run – it’s in Devon Portielje’s ethereal vocals, the intricate instrumentation blending rock and electro elements, the adventurous yet accessible songwriting… All the same, there’s a fire, a drive to the band’s music that’s all theirs, and tracks like Full Circle, She Wants to Know and Drug You have a thrillingly hypnotic quality.
