Evil Eyes release new EP ‘ii’

San Francisco trio Evil Eyes are back with a new EP titled ii, their latest release since last year’s Borderlines LP. In line with the style on their previous albums, ii combines dreamy California power pop with the band’s Nashville roots. The album’s opening track “Johnny Said” paves the landscape with a touch of Nashville twang that stretches over a tight guitar and synth melody. Somewhere in between rustic folk-pop and ‘80s era Fleetwood Mac, the new EP is perfect for 20 minutes of a late summer drive, if you can manage to find a highway desolate enough. https://soundcloud.com/onlyevileyes/sets/evil-eyes-ep-ii

New video From Evil Eyes: “Keep Your Mind On Me”

San Franciscans Evil Eyes just dropped their newest video for "Keep Your Mind On Me" off of their debut full-length Borderlines. Directed by Joe Lumbroso, the video focuses on the band as bewildered travelers looking for their love who has been plucked away by a cardboard claw.  Along the way they're tempted by siren space babes in cone bras, scoot from planet to planet in jet packs, and ride in cut-out submarines and hot air balloons while stop-motion comets slam together. Eventually they make it home to their lady in a log cabin, but (spoiler) she's already been charmed senseless by a monster [...]

Video: Evil Eyes — "Flow"

Photo: Aleks Bars Evil Eyes just dropped a music video for "Flow", offering a pristine black and white visual to compliment the brevity of the song. It starts off with flashes of a dusty earth setting, cold concrete and brick, a forgotten set of stairs, before cutting to curious outer space scenery littered with stars and textured landscapes. There's no story, and it doesn't need one. Paired with the song's languid sound waves, the video's lush imagery captures the dreamy and moody vibrations that make Evil Eyes' music so stunning.

Interview: Greg Mabry on Evil Eyes' debut LP, 'Borderlines'

After releasing a four-song EP and a handful of singles in 2012, Greg Mabry and Joe Frabotta established their project Evil Eyes with a style they describe as the "soundtrack for your midnight ride." Whether that ride is aimless or packed with purpose, solemn or full of mischief, the now four-piece outfit offers a sound that simmers in subtle, we own the night vibrations. At the helm of the project along with Frabotta (vocalist, synth-master and guitarist), Mabry lends the band many of its textured layers on guitar and vocals. We spoke briefly about his band's debut LP, Borderlines, which was released at the end [...]

Evil Eyes announce 'Borderlines' LP

(Photo: Aleks Bars) San Francisco's Evil Eyes, the band led by Nashville transplants Greg Mabry and Joe Frabotta, was one of my favorite new bands of 2012, a year which they spent releasing a great collection of singles and videos, and playing a handful of shows. We haven't heard much from Evil Eyes in 2013, but that's because they've been busy recording their debut LP, Borderlines, which is set for a July 24 release. Ten of the 12 tracks are brand new, while previously released songs "Keep Your Mind on Me" and "Evil Eyes" were reworked for the album. The [...]

Song Premiere: Evil Eyes – "Keep Your Mind On Me"

San Francisco's Evil Eyes debuted with an EP and single release this summer, and today are releasing a new single, "Keep Your Mind On Me".

Founding members Greg Mabry and Joe Frabotta will continue to be the chief songwriters and producers, but with Angelica Rockne becoming a full-time vocalist, Aleks Bars playing bass, and Brian DaMert taking over on drums. Listen to "Keep Your [...]

Evil Eyes – "Over My Shoulder" / "Playing with Matches"

evil eyes by evil eyes San Francisco based Evil Eyes is the brainchild of Tennnesse college friends Greg Mabry and Joe Frabotta.

Since then, they've released an EP, two videos, and will soon release a 7" single of "Over My Shoulder" and "Playing with Matches" on their own label, Eye in the Sky Records.
