Calgary Crystal Eyes shared their new single “Like a Movie”.
The track comes from their next second album, The sweetness was restored, released on April 22 through Bobo Integral. Today’s release sees Crystal Eyes sharpening their quintessential psychedelic sound with a jangle-pop feel. The dreamy melody comes full of enchanting guitars, orchestral strings and hazy melodies.
“‘Like a Movie’ is three minutes of indie rock bliss in the artistic vein of Sharon Van Etten or the Alvvays,” explains Crystal Eyes singer Erin Jenkins. “The secret of its sound is a classic Hammond instrument with Leslie speakers, a guitar solo and the support of a string quartet reminiscent of the Neutral Milk Hotel. “If love is ‘like a movie,’ how will it end?”
Listen to “Like a Movie” below.
Crystal Eyes consists of singer / guitarist Erin Jenkins along with a rotating cast of musicians, currently featuring Jordan Tettensor, Joleen Toner, Will Johnson and Paul de Andrade. Their forthcoming album is a “tangible self-help album for the era of existential terror”, the band explains.
In addition to “Like a Movie”, The sweetness was restored includes previous singles “Wishes” and “Don’t Turn Around”.
The sweetness was restored is a collection of ten melodies that weave in and out of items with ease. From new wave to psych-rock to shoegaze, this album has a bit of everything.
