Following the release of his tracks “Prada” and “Brain Dead,” Filipino indie artist Eyedress (Idris Vicuna) is set to release his new album Mulholland Drive on August 27.
As Eyedress shared, the upcoming album is about embracing positivity and simple pleasures, while also dealing with more complicated themes.
“Chad An Gordy,” a collaboration with King Krule, is a reflection on being away from family, while “Body Dysmorphia” talks about unrealistic beauty standards.
“It’s about loving your image and who you are,” Eyedress said. “You have to fit into the beauty standards of the world, which is a problem. I wanted to make a song about loving yourself for who you are.”
“This album is about loving yourself and your life,” he said. “At this point in my life, all the people who support me have made my life better than I can imagine. I’m literally eating off of this, and I want to give back because there’s so much love.”
Mulholland Drive is Eyedress’ fourth album. The artist, formerly the lead guitarist of the and Bee Eyes, made his solo debut in 2017 with the album Manila Ice.
His 2020 album Let’s Skip to the Wedding, includes Tiktok hits “Jealous” and “Romantic Lover,” while also hitting the Spotify and Billboard charts in the United States. – Rappler.com
