Following the release of her debut EP Dogs and Gods in 2020, New Zealand-born, London-based singer & songwriter October and the Eyes is back with a new single ‘Spiral’, which is out now via KRO Records. October will also be playing a UK tour with Yves Tumor this month.
Speaking about the new single, October said “‘Spiral’ is about a problematic friendship where you never quite know where you stand at any given time – a constant pendulum between being pulled in and then spat out again, going round and round in circles until you’re left dizzied and jaded by the whole thing. The song is pretty scathing and somewhat of a waving fist. I wanted the song to sound in constant flux, with reverberating percussion and vocals that feel like they could spiral out of control at any moment.”
It’s a perfect piece of post-punk, starting off with a dose of dirty industrialism before the guitars and vocals come into their own. There is a lot to like here and as the track progresses you don’t want it to end, falling deeper into its fold.
