Now, that is something really interesting! “Eye in the sky” is a band from Argentina that I had never heard of before. That is quite normal, though, because they released only one record so far (in 2010) that became a sold out (as far as I was informed, this record will be on the market again very soon, as a re-print. In the meantime the band is already in the studio preparing their next album).
First and foremost, I want to clear something up: When I come across a new band with vision and talent, I tend to go overdrive in order to promote them. And that is what I did in this case. I listened to this record, and I found it really good and interesting. So, I thought to make a little experiment before I write this review (and also them a little bit of advertising).
I posted a video with one of their songs (maybe the best of the record), in my community in “google+”, and many other music communities as well, asking from people there to listen to them and write a comment, or at least show if they like them or not by putting “+” to the video. And I just waited… The main idea was to take a quick “feedback” from people with different music tastes. The results came really fast and they were very very favorable. I read some really good comments about their music from all those people and their video collected many “+” in total. So my first impression was right…
Now, a few things about the album. It’s titled “Destiny Interpreters” and, as I mentioned before, it is going to be released again after the sold out it accomplished. Their music style is very pleasant, easy to listen, without long and complex compositions. They have very beautiful melodies and catchy rhythms. The general feeling I get from the album is not so uplifting maybe, but for sure it isn’t depressive! They sing in their mother tongue and English too, and I must say that their English is good and matches their sound (un some cases they use both languages in the same song).
They have some nice funky rhythms in parts, which are very pleasant. In the majority of their songs they have a very strong bass line that makes a nice combination with the use of flute. Although they are absolutely skilled musicians, I liked the fact that they don’t play in order to brag and boast of their musical knowledge. By far, their best song is the dreamy “Ethereal” followed by “City of Sun”. All the other songs are more or less the same style and it depends on the listeners’ taste to choose which ones he/she will like the most.
In conclusion, I believe that for this debut album is a very interesting and pleasant listening experience.
