Crayola Eyes announce signing to Fuzz Club and reissue of their debut album ‘Gushing’
Indonesian outfit Crayola Eyes are today announcing their signing Fuzz Club and a reissue of their debut album ‘Gushing’, originally released digitally back in February this year and now due on vinyl for the first time on December 8th. It comes on 180g coloured vinyl, with a limited edition red/blue swirl vinyl edition available exclusively from the FC store/membership. Pre-order here
Behind their reverb-drenched pop/psychedelia, Crayola Eyes are a Jakarta-based six-piece consisting of vocalist and tambourine-shaker Reno Nismara, guitarists Kendra Ahimsa (aka the highly sought-after artist/designer Ardneks) and Bayu Andrianto, bassist Aditya Hadisusanto, keyboardist Anindya Anugrah, and drummer Ferry Prakarsa.
On the signing and ‘Gushing’ vinyl release, the band said: “We're beyond ecstatic to finally share the news that we have joined the Fuzz Club Records family. Safe to say, we're part of THE club now; in the company of legendary and emerging artists from around the world that we're fans of throughout the years. First order of business: we'll be releasing our full-length debut album, Gushing, in physical format for the first-time ever through the label. We've been wanting to put it out on vinyl and we're so glad that Fuzz Club Records is the one doing it. Couldn’t ask for more.”
As the title suggests, ‘Gushing’ is intended to capture the band's nature in creating and delivering songs without compromise and restraint. It can also be seen as a manifestation of their stance to be in control of their own music, to create what they want to create. The result – co-produced with Bernardus Fritz – is an album of varying styles yet still bonded by Crayola Eyes' fundamental particularity, which makes for an authentic creation that can be enjoyed by everyone
A song of ascension. A wall-of-sound whirlwind. An homage in overdrive. A bittersweet, conversational number. A kaleidoscopic string section. A head-on collision between krautrock and good ol’ rock & roll. A trip to the sinister outskirts of late ‘60s psychedelia. A stripped-down ballad. It’s all there on this deeply engrossing debut.
