Marbled Eye: EPII 7"

Digital Regress


We are very excited to announce our next release coming out 4/10/17 will be the follow up EP to Marbled Eye's excellent debut Tape. Marbled Eye are from Oakland, CA and play tightly-coiled, angular-post-punk.

Our take: Debut 7” from this Bay Area, California band whose demo cassette we raved about a while back, and now that they’re on vinyl we still love them. To me, Marbled Eye sound like the perfect mix of Total Control and Parquet Courts. Like both of those bands, Marbled Eye have a way of combining a Krautrock-style groove with angular, Wire-esque post-punk style riffing and wrapping the whole thing up in great pop songwriting. While their hooks aren’t quite as big as the most memorable moments of the bands I just compared them to, I feel like that’s by design. Even though this is a 7”, it’s so grooved out that it feels like a record you put on and get lost in the atmosphere of rather than putting on to pump your fist and sing along. This band is absolutely killer, and I feel like it’s only a matter of time before they’re as big as the two bands I just compared them to, so grab this 7” and get in on the ground floor.
