A sultry, melancholy-tinged electronic gem, New Zealand-born, London-based songwriter October and The Eyes has shared her latest single ‘All My Love’. Lifted from her debut EP Dogs and Gods, which is set for release on 20th November via KRO Records, the track is a bittersweet, yet swaggering extrapolation on desire and infatuation.
“’All My Love’ is unfortunately a love song – something I told myself I would never write yet here I am,” October and The Eyes reluctantly admits. “But it’s not all sweet. In fact, I would call it more of a lust song. It’s about being in love but lusting for something more. It’s about desire, greed, and infatuation with a stranger.”
“The song became strangely prophetic in recent months as I watched the one I once loved self destruct from afar ‘in tin cans and other crumbs of temporary self satisfaction’ – a line I wrote before I could even comprehend that it would become remotely true. Because of this, the song is now tainted with a strange sadness that I’ll carry with me every time I perform it.”
Despite her unease about writing about heartbreak, October and The Eyes has crafted a slick, hazy, kaleidoscopic-feeling on her new single. Written and produced in her bedroom in East London, her independent spirit is reflected in the tracks that make up her upcoming EP.
