Following the release of her debut EP ‘Dogs and Gods’ in 2020, New Zealand-born, London-based singer & songwriter OCTOBER AND THE EYES is back with a new single ‘Spiral’, which is out now via KRO Records. October will also be playing a UK tour with YVES TUMOR this March.

Speaking about the new single, October said “‘Spiral’ is about a problematic friendship where you never quite know where you stand at any given time - a constant pendulum between being pulled in and then spat out again, going round and round in circles until you’re left dizzied and jaded by the whole thing. The song is pretty scathing and somewhat of a waving fist. I wanted the song to sound in constant flux, with reverberating percussion and vocals that feel like they could spiral out of control at any moment.”

“OCTOBER AND THE EYES makes music that wouldn’t feel out of place on the soundtrack of an arthouse thriller. Read: dark, sexy and a little dangerous” - i-D

“Songwriting charred black, her fusion of acid rock and post-punk leans towards The Cramps' playful nihilism, while expressing something potent and personal” – CLASH

“October pulls inspiration from the greats, such as BAUHAUS, BOWIE, SIOUXSIE SIOUX AND SUICIDE, but giving it her own modern, electronic-infused sound, thus creating something wholly unique” – Notion

“Hypnotic” – DIY

“October draws from the music of her childhood and modern electronica, crafting snarling songs led by her grainy vocals and sharp guitar figures” – Dazed
