Eyelids Share “Colossal Waste Of Light”

Portland OR band Eyelids have a new video/single out today. This single “A Colossal Waste of Light.” The song is off the Eyelids’ new album titled ‘Colossal Waste Of Light’ (Jealous Butcher Records). It is out Mar 10th 2023. The album does an excellent job of framing the quintet as one of today’s most compelling purveyors of lopsided guitar pop workouts and earworm-laden vocal melodies. Produced by REM’s Peter Buck, A Colossal Waste of Light is Eyelids fourth LP and the first to feature new bass player Victor Krummenacher (Camper Van Beethoven, Monks of Doom). 

With all the feel of a lost late 70s classic, A Colossal Waste Of Light sounds both majestic and playfully open to multifaceted meanings and moods. It’s haunting and vibrant all at once while putting some kicks back toward melancholy. Every track feels like its own journey and having songs from two songwriters at the top of their game makes for a most dynamic, immersive narrative as their songs follow one another throughout. As a whole, it’s thrilling, moving, mercurial, absorbing, soothing, and unmistakably Eyelids.
