Eyes of Love is the eclectic experimental project of Brooklyn-based songwriter Andrea Schiavelli. To help him craft his intriguing mix of pop, punk, and instrumental arrangements, Schiavelli formed a band with some of New York’s most skilled underground musicians: Lily Konigsberg (Palberta, Lily and Horn Horse), Sammy Weissberg (The Cradle, Sweet Baby Jesus) and Paco Cathcart (The Cradle, Shimmer).
Eyes of Love’s debut full-length, End of the Game, is out Aug. 17 via Wharf Cat Records. “Homeowners,” the record’s opening track, is a wobbly masterpiece of taut, post-punk guitars, pulsing rhythms, and earworm melody. Schiavelli says: “I wrote the song in my head at 4am walking through downtown Brooklyn on the way home from work as a sound engineer. At the time I was reading a lot of JG Ballard shorts. I was obsessed with the inner state of rocking out that can take whatever external form. Like air guitar or something doesn’t actually have to generate sound to be potent.”
