Filipino singer Eyedress comes through with a deeply personal and reflective album on his experiences living in Manila. It’s titled Sensitive G, a dream-pop influenced record that is guitar-heavy, finding a balance between meditative melodies and aggressive rhythms that sound menacing and dark.
Eyedress’ vocal performances are clear highlights to this record, who is able to transition between soft and moody, such as on tracks like “Cocaine Sunday” and “Baby Girl,” which features a sweet and soft guitar melody that is just beautiful, or harsh gritty, such as on tracks like “Xenophobic” and “No Love In The City,” where he is unapologetically honest about his feelings. The latter half of the album features some smoother jazz and R&B inspired tracks, especially the title track, which is a stunning piece, with beautiful synths, stunning guitar leads and a bassline that oozes funk and soul. It shows his versatility not only as a singer and songwriter, but also as a composer and producer.
Spanning 20 tracks, Sensitive G is beautiful in its sound and message. Diverse, in sound, honest in its message and a real joy to listen to and experience. You can listen to the album below via Bandcamp., and don’t forget to support! Released via Lex Records.
