We came across the tribal, propulsive and hypnotic sounds of Brussels’ Why The Eye? at the tail end of last year and we’re picking their eponymous album to start 2018 on a high. An unconventional and quirky band known for their musically and visually ecstatic live shows, Why The Eye?’s music brims with mystery and celebration, with its four masked members playing only home-made instruments, like the microdrukit, the lamellophone or the likembe. For a taste of their paleo-futuristic techno, take a listen to ‘Plastique’ and ‘Free Gluten’ now.
Why The Eye?’s self-titled debut album is out now through Angstrom and Plynt on all usual formats and also in the form of a specially brewed ale with a download code, available only at their shows. If you’re near Brussels, don’t miss them at Brass on February 16th.
