song premiere: "Tiger's Eye" - Spandrels

Spandrels started as a one-off, and nearly eight months later, the group has overcome the miles between them and to create and release their first official single "Tiger's Eye." It's a track unlike anything you'll hear; beginning as something fuzzy, raucous and fun. After listeners tumble through a whirlwind of catchy melodies and biting guitar they emerge in an unexpected breakdown. The energy and amusement that seemingly started it all are stripped away as the track transforms to the sounds of guitar and drums echoing off one another, floating and crashing into a wide expanse of noise. Eerie vocal effects loom overhead, their message garbled and unclear. In a single that reflects the idea "the desire for your lover to end the relationship when you don't have the strength to, when both of you know it can't work out the way it was supposed to be," this vast change seems to echo that message. Relationships can start out so innocently and fun, but when it falls apart you're left to wander the darkness alone.
