song premiere: in your eyes - daphne tunes

At the end of January, daphne tunes will release Vol.1, a collection of songs on two moons. Ahead of that we're treated to "in your eyes," a song in two very different acts created to echo the stages of conflict. The first act is heavy, compromised of fuzzy, psychedelic, trippy instrumental effects and Santiago Dietche's soft vocals lamenting a resulting argument. Bandmates, Josh Halpern, Peter Shults and Andrew Stevens provide a final burst of twang before it's stripped all away. For the nearly three final minutes, "in your eyes" becomes a track of experiment and reflection. Guitars are given room to create, noodling with crisp and clear precision. Those moments we feel angry or lost, as we struggle to keep hold any semblance of peace are etched in a track that mirrors our worst battles — from the rush of feelings to the settled acceptance, "in your eyes" is a beautifully pieced together intimate portrait of emotions.

"In your eyes is a song about differences and overcoming them. I started writing it throughout some sad times I went through around this time last year and finished the song not too long after. I wanted to split the song into two parts: the first half represents an argument with a mixture of universal and specific words and feelings that we all experience in the heat of a conflict. The second half is without words and acts as a moody, but hopeful jam to go along with the uphill battle that comes with getting over that conflict."
