Manila-born, Los Angeles-based rising star Eyedress shares a cover of Blur’s hit song “Song 2.” Listen HERE.

The song was included in Deezer’s InVersions 90’s compilation, which also includes covers by Soccer MommyPriya RaguLauv and more. 

“We made this in London,” Eyedress explains. “Originally, I was trying to do a heavy ‘rock’ version lol with distorted guitars and live drums then we ended up doing a mellow guitar version and I kept looking at this Oberheim synthesizer they had in the studio and when we plugged that in, we changed the whole direction of the song and made it this 80s synth pop cover with drum machines and synthesizers, it was a fun day!”

His new album FULL TIME LOVER was recently released on Lex Records. Listen HERE.

The album finds him working with a host of collaborators including, The DrumsGonjasufiHOMESHAKENosaj ThingPaul CherryChuck StrangersNa-Kel Smith and Slimesito.

Watch videos for “IN THE DOG HOUSE” with Franky Villani, “DREAM DEALER” with Chad Hugo—which debuted via Consequence, “A GOOD LIFE,” “2 HEADED GOAT,” “SMOKE & MIRRORS,” “HOUSE OF CARDS,” “SPAGHETTI” featuring HOMESHAKE and “STILL IN LOVE.”

“This is the album where I’m putting all the genres together, and I usually keep them separate,” he explains about the 28-track project. “I’ll drop a whole rap album, or I’ll drop a whole guitar album. But I thought, maybe everyone already knows me as this person who does all of these things. So why don’t I just put it all on the same album?”
