Beginning in 2017 and based in Singapore, Subsonic Eye craft noise rock that convey the hectic, fast-paced character of urban life through snappy, invigorating hooks, layered with singer Nur Wahidah’s restless velvety lilt. The quintet find possibilities in embracing organic energy - at times taking root in post-punk dynamism, at others blooming into primitivist folk cuts.
On their fourth full-length All Around You, Subsonic Eye explore their relationship with nature with renewed appreciation for its coexistence with urban cities. As if to make this harmony manifest, Subsonic Eye balances the scales with songs that pick apart the brutal and monotonous cycles of our capitalist setting. Though the subject matter can grind you down, the songs instill purpose and uplift listeners with undeniably hooky songwriting that combines the best of Alvvays and Sonic Youth.
Rather than succumb to doom, Subsonic Eye relishes the opportunity to meditate on these uncomfortable emotions to find their way to the ultimate realisation that beauty is all around us.
