On the extensive European tour in 2013, TYRED EYES started writing and performing new songs. The sad notice of the passing of a close friend to the band, in the middle of the tour, set an initial dark mood to the new material. The album was then recorded during three weeks in Welfare Sounds Studios with producers Per Stålberg and Olle Björk.
TYRED EYES have since the start taken big musical and inspirational steps between releases, and the difference between last year’s ‘Ghost’ Ep and new album ‘Elevator’ is substantial. If ‘Ghost’ Ep consisted of 4 short and direct pop songs with a lot of punk attitude, then ‘Elevator’ is it’s older and more mellow sibling. The older sister with the cool band posters who smoked cigarettes and knew what bands were shown on MTV. TYRED EYES has been influenced a lot of the lo-fi/indie bands of the 90’s, as opposed to 70’s punk, which has set a great impact on the new album. The album titel ”Elevator” refers to the original meaning of the word, “something that elevates”, rather than a means of transportation.
However, TYRED EYES are now ready to move to the next floor.
