BASICcomic My new absolute favourite band. All that was great about early 90s indie without any of the things that were wrong with early 90s indie. I also can believe how young they are, making music this artful. Marvellous stuff. Favorite track: Animinimism.

kain_128 While their earlier music was a bit more shoegazey, this album takes more of an indie approach, which I absolutely love. Favorite track: Fruitcake.

about

Shedding heavy fuzz and fanfare for rawer tonality and wearied lyricism, Singaporean noise rock mainstays Subsonic Eye reinvent themselves on their third full-length release Nature of Things.

Coming to grips with their place in a strange world, the band finds refuge in confessional intimacy with a grounded palette that evokes the album’s namesake – nature – whilst pondering the toll of human indulgence.

Capturing beauty in the liminal, Nature of Things finds the band poignantly celebrating the spirits of a natural world fast disappearing. In a world that seems to be closing in, their sonic metamorphosis becomes a source of life-affirming refuge. By embracing their most immediate instincts, Subsonic Eye take their boldest steps forward.
