FM4 Indiekiste presents EYEDRESS

Eyedress is the alias of Filipino artist Idris Vicuña, formerly lead

guitarist of Manila based psychedelic indie/noise pop band Bee Eyes.

Born in 1990 in the city of Makati, Philippines, Vicuña relocated to

the US with his family at the age of 6. He was raised in Phoenix,

Arizona before moving to San Clemente, California at the age of 13,

where he started playing bass in a Crass-influenced crust punk band.

In 2005, Vicuña moved back to Manila where he formed Bee Eyes with

friends Julius Valledor and Diego Abad. Valledor taught Vicuña the art

of sampling and making loops. During downtime from the band Vicuña

pursued his own solo project which would eventually become Eyedress.

He released his first record as Eyedress in 2013, entitled „Hearing

Colors”. Well received by music blogs, it led to him signing his first

record deal with XL Recordings imprint Abeano. Later that year they

released his EP “Supernatural” which saw praise from publications such

as The Guardian and NME.

He followed up in 2016 with his second full length, „Shapeshifter“, on

his own label Babe Slayer. The title track featured King Krule under

his Edgar The Breathtaker alias, as well as several underground

artists including London rapper Oscar #Worldpeace and LA rapper

Pyramid Vritra.

Signed to UK label Lex Records, he released his third full length

record “Manila Ice”, an album about love and survival in the

Philippines, in 2017. Showcasing his unique talent for lovesick

composition and songwriting, the album was recorded around the birth

of his first child and represents the hopes and fears of a young

parent. It provided him with an escape from the realities of his

personal life and the dramatic political events in his home city that

continue to unfold.

Enlisting his local friends Jess Connelly, Ankhten Brown, Jasmine and

Teenage Granny, Manila Ice sees eyedress strip his electronic

experimentation back to more traditional songwriting, bringing

striking honesty to the DIY spirit and naratives that weave through

the record.

The follow up was released in November 2018. ‘Sensitive G’ is a deeply

personal reflection on the joys and pains of his life in Manila told

through the styles he was influenced whilst growing up in the US; R&B,

dream-pop, indie rock, punk rock and G-funk. A more solitary affair

‘Sensitive G’ was recorded almost entirely by himself in his bedroom

and demonstrates a more refined and visceral approach to his process

and palette.

Following the release of ‘Sensitive G’ he relocated from Manila to LA,

and began collaborating with like minded artists, such as Triathlon,

Natia and VRITRA. Throughout 2019 his wild live show has been in high

demand, and found him sharing stages with acts like Homeshake, Omar

Apollo, Deb Never, Enjoy, N8NOFACE and B Cool Aid, as well as

supporting Inner Wave on their 13 date west coast tour in June.

Eyedress‘ 2020 project ‘Let’s Skip To The Wedding’ was his first album

since he moved to the United States. A passionate exploration of the

themes of love, adjusting to life in a new city, and preparing to

welcome a child into this ever changing world. ‘Let’s Skip To The

Wedding’ channels all the uncertainty of 2020 into an eclectic

collection of songs and loved up remedy for the times.

Lead single ‘Jealous’ grew steadily through early 2020 before viral

success on TikTok catapulted it to success. It’s now his most popular

track to date and has introduced him to a huge new audience. The track

has had over 10 million streams worldwide and charted on Spotify’s

Viral 50 Chart in the US, UK, Canada and many other countries.
