Suburban Eyes Announce Selt-titled LP, Share "Headlight Torches"

Indie rock / alt band Suburban Eyes have announced the release of their self-titled new album. Marking the announcement the band have released the brand new single “Headlight Torches“.

The 9-track record will be out on August 30 via Spartan Records. Pre-order your copy here.

After over two decades of recording and touring with their individually prominent ‘90s/early-’00s indie bands, the members of Suburban Eyes — Eric Richter (Christie Front Drive, Antarctica), Jeremy Gomez (Mineral, The Gloria Record), and John Anderson (Boys Life) — offer up a nine-song showcase that truly sets itself apart via a sonic duality that seamlessly finds an intersection between propulsion and drive but interwoven with dreamy and shimmering soundscapes, all while retaining accessible pop structures and hooks.

While its collectively represent an impressive roster of previous projects, aside from their established DIY values and work ethic, the band does not rehash too much literal musical influence. Certainly each player brings their own unique sonic signatures that are identifiable to longtime listeners, but make no mistake — this is something new. “I think that all three of us are far enough removed from our past projects at this point,” Jeremy Gomez says. “That’s not to say that you don’t continue to carry those things with you, but creatively speaking, none of us even gave [our previous bands] any thought, good or bad, when working on this project.”

Additionally, Suburban Eyes is also a story of reconnection, but also a lesson in taking things further than you thought was previously possible but through different avenues. Often with a pause, and the occasional cheeky comment, comes moments of clarity and perspective. Suburban Eyes represents both a dynamic and creative unpausing — and inception — of something powerful and newly inspired.

New Single “Headlight Torches,” is about the passing of time and how quickly it starts getting away from you. Take a listen below, followed by the album’s artwork and tracklist.
