Water From Your Eyes has taken on recent touring companions Interpol’s track “Something Changed” as part of the latter’s ‘Interpolations’ project, which sees songs from Interpol’s latest album ‘The Other Side Of Make-Believe’ reimagined by different artists. Listen BELOW:

Taking the original’s punch-drunk piano shuffle and brooding vocals and subjecting them to an expertly wielded sonic and rhythmic sledgehammer, the interpolation adds vocals from Water From Your Eyes vocalist Rachel Brown. “The idea was to invert the tone of the song, like a photo negative,” says Water From Your Eyes’ Nate Amos, “reframing change from something foreboding into something encouraging - as well as creating a conversation between Paul and Rachel in order to place the thoughts externally rather than internally.”

The track joins recently released interpolations from Makaya McCraven (“Big Shot City”), Jeff Parker (“Passenger”) and Jesu (“Toni”), with Daniel Avery’s contribution to follow.

Water From Your Eyes recently performed three songs from their critically acclaimed new album ‘Everyone’s Crushed’ for Bandcamp Live. Joined by additional guitarist Al Nardo, the band shred through album highlights “Barley”, “Out There”, and “True Life”. The performance is followed by a conversation with journalist Shaad D’Souza. Watch BELOW:

Water From Your Eyes are confirmed for Summerstage in Central Park this month alongside Horsegirl, Iceage & Lifeguard. The band will play a handful of US west coast dates with Melody’s Echo Chamber in October ahead of their appearance at Levitation Fest in Austin. Next month, the band will appear at festivals across Europe, including Oya Night, Way Out West, Lowlands, Green Man, & MS Dockville. In November they will embark on an EU headline tour including Pitchfork Festival in London, Paris and Berlin, as well as Sonic City in Belgium & Primavera Weekender in Spain. A complete list of upcoming dates can be found below.

Across the record's nine tracks, Rachel Brown (they/them) and Nate Amos (he/him) find silliness and fatalism dancing in a frantic lockstep, using heart-palpitating rhythms and absurdist, deadpan lyrics to convey stories of personal and societal unease. Described by Brown as Water From Your Eyes’ most collaborative record ever, it’s a swollen contusion of an album: experimental pop music that’s pretty and violent, raw and indelible.
