October and the Eyes unleashes scathing psych pop hex “Spiral”

Imagine if The Doors had existed in a cyberpunk universe, I reckon it approximates October and The Eyes dark, blistering new single “Spiral”, out now via KRO Records. It’s a hazardous but bewitching slab of song that confidently adheres to its title, descending down the vertigo of madness and mayhem. Indeed, the New Zealand-based artist has a similar penchant for writing corrupt pop music as Yves Tumor, who naturally took October under their wing.

“”Spiral” is about a problematic friendship where you never quite know where you stand at any given time”, she says of the new single, “a constant pendulum between being pulled in and then spat out again, going round and round in circles until you’re left dizzied and jaded by the whole thing. The song is pretty scathing and somewhat of a waving fist.”

Listen to “Spiral” below and on other streaming services.
