Hotly tipped Canadian indie-rock trio Basement Revolver have released the title track from their debut album, “Heavy Eyes”, the album of the same name is due out on the 24th August 2018 via Fear Of Missing Out Records.
The sleepy title “Heavy Eyes” sums up a general exhaustion right down to the bone, as well as hinting at a heavier direction as the band deftly merge 90s infused indie rock with fuzzy dreamy pop and poignant, yearning lyrics. As songwriter and singer Chrisy Hurn explains; “'Heavy Eyes’ is about feeling really tired. And life is hard when you are really tired.”
The trio of Chrisy Hurn, Nimal Agalawatte and Brandon Munro embarked on their first UK dates earlier this year, with two tremendous sets at The Great Escape Festival and a sold-out show at Paper Dress Vintage in London. The band will be touring the UK again at the end of 2018, dates tba.
