Quezon City, Manila, in the Philippines is where Idris Vicuña's music project EYEDRESS came to life. It also serves as the backdrop of the Filipino wunderkinds new, self-directed music video for his latest track "Teen Spirits." Speaking about "Teen Spirit," Idris explains that it's "a song about true love and the idea of soul mates, about finding the one and following them into the next life, loving them forever. The video is about giving love another shot even it got so fucked up"
"Teen Spirits" premieres on Noisey today:
EYEDRESS' universally well received debut Supernatural EP was released on XL Recordings imprint label Abeano last fall. Recorded on Fruity Loops in EYEDRESS' bedroom on a PC laptop handed down to him by his father, Supernatural features the blog-catching track "Biolumine" and the eerily wistful single "Nature Trips." The latter track has an equally eerie video that stars Vicuña and was also shot in his hometown (view here).
EYEDRESS has used the Internet to his advantage so much so that The Observer named him a One To Watch and Dazed stated him an essential music name for 2014. He has recently supported Grimes and How To Dress Well and his beats appeared on the L3IF mix tape and the new mix from London's renowned DJ Oneman. He heads to Europe soon for his first ever UK tour, dates below:
21st February London Seabright Arms (NME Show)
22nd February Paris Café de la Danse
28th February Amsterdam Di Nieuwe Anita
4th March London Village Underground (with Jungle)
"Eyedress sounds like nobody but himself. Keep your eye on what he does next" - NME

EYEDRESS is centred around 23 year old Manila based producer, filmmaker and romantic Idris Vicuña.
Eyedress' music is the culmination of the experiments he started when mov- ing back to the Philippines from Phoenix, Arizona when he was 15 years old due to a family relocation.
