Artist: Hilly Eye
Release: Reasons to Live
Label: No Idea Records/Don Giovanni Records
Genre: Indie rock
Brooklyn, New York’s Hilly Eye released their highly anticipated full-length album, Reasons to Live, today on Don Giovanni Records. Hilly Eye is a collaboration between guitarist/vocalist Amy Klein (a k a Amy Andronicus) and drummer/vocalist Catherine Tung. The duo formed in 2009 as a way to experiment with noise and melody. Their favorite band at the time was the Osaka noise band Afrirampo and they wanted to start something like that–a two-girl band that was super primal and agressive, but also psychedelic and dreamy. Their sound alternates between quiet and loud, delicate melodies and big swathes of noise, contrasting elements.
