Throwing us under the mirrors and lights of an anxious club dance floor, new single‘EYES WIDE’ from Bec Sandridge warps the pop textbook into something moreknotted and metallic, with a jolt of defiance.
‘EYES WIDE’ captures a lonely paranoia that is dramatically inescapable. Sandridgecelebrates the scars that we cannot “unstick" by examining the self inflicted hurt of awounded relationship "Can we unstick a scar / When I tried to well you just stood andblamed me / I've got plenty of heart / But is there limit to us? “
Co-produced by Oscar Dawson and Gab Strum (Japanese Wallpaper), ‘EYES WIDE’sonically nods to Sandridge’s favourite bands from the late 70’s-80’s andnow (Sousiex + The Banshees, Fleetwood Mac + Robyn), with her trademark onenoteangular guitar lines, hard-hitting high hats on loop and ethereal newwavechimes.
Of the track, Sandridge states "I began to question my relationship patterns duringthe recording process. I started asking myself is my behaviour instinctual, a longingrained habit or based on self preservation and protection? The song looks at mediscovering my own emotional boundaries and limitations.”
