Why The Eye return with new album, Inspirex, share first single ‘La machine’

We were lucky to come across the tribal, propulsive and hypnotic sounds of Why The Eye in 2017, just after they released their eponymous debut album, and immediately became avid fans. Based in Brussels, the mysteriously masked quartet, who describe their music as “Prehistoric Techno”, play home-made instruments made out of random objects. The good news is they are finally back with a new album. Entitled Inspirex, the record arrives on October 4th through Exag Records and they are giving us a first taste of  what to expect from the album with ‘La Machine’. Of the track, the band says:

“La Machine was composed at rue de la Senne, a legendary spot on the Brussels underground scene. The song was written in a flash, in a single day. The overall shape emerged instantly. The text became clearer during the covid crisis. The song speaks of the confinement generated by our capitalist society. Live, this song sets the audience free! When we recorded the album in the midst of the covid crisis, the song became more vindictive. The crowd noises, it’s the band screaming. Initially, “les boules dans la machine” was a bit abstract. But then it took on a different meaning.”

A daredevil of a single, ‘La Machine’ comes with an accompanying video directed by DjP and Marco Zagaglia and you can watch it below.
