Edinburgh-based Eyes of Others has not only released new track, First and Last, but has dropped the new EP, Elevenses. Having stepped out of the woods to bring us these releases, The Fountain caught up with Eyes of Others to discuss new music, favourite venues and plans for the rest of the year.

TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to First and Last?

You don’t often hear from the defectors so it’s hard to say exactly but we’ve had some nice and positive reactions so far – the owls in the music video are going down especially well. you don’t often hear from the defectors so it’s hard to say exactly. It’s still early days with the full Elevenses EP out on May 28th.

TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?

First and Last is a conflict, a contradiction, a convalescence, a creature of habit looking to nature for healthier habits.

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?

The live performance landscape is still a bit of an unknown at the moment so I’m concentrating on writing and recording new material of my own for another record. During locking I’ve been working with Berlin based DJ Küsse on a new new project – US Useless – so we’ll be making our first releases this summer. It’s kinda bittersweet, breezy lofi pop tunes.

TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?

Sneaky Pete’s is probably my favourite place to play – good sound system, nice staff, friendly and curious crowd. So to play there would feel homely.
