THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
Throwing us under the mirrors and lights of an anxious club dance floor, new single‘EYES WIDE’ from Bec Sandridge warps the pop textbook into something moreknotted and metallic, with a jolt of defiance.
‘EYES WIDE’ captures a lonely paranoia that is dramatically inescapable. Sandridgecelebrates the scars that we cannot “unstick" by examining the self inflicted hurt of awounded relationship "Can we unstick a scar / When I tried to well you just stood andblamed me / I've got plenty of heart / But is there limit to us? “
Co-produced by Oscar Dawson and Gab Strum (Japanese Wallpaper), ‘EYES WIDE’sonically nods to Sandridge’s favourite bands from the late 70’s-80’s andnow (Sousiex + The Banshees, Fleetwood Mac + Robyn), with her trademark onenoteangular guitar lines, hard-hitting high hats on loop and ethereal newwavechimes.
Of the track, Sandridge states "I began to question my relationship patterns duringthe recording process. I started asking myself is my behaviour instinctual, a longingrained habit or based on self preservation and protection? The song looks at mediscovering my own emotional boundaries and limitations.”
‘EYES WIDE’ looks into the fear and anxiety of being abandoned (both on the dancefloor and in a relationship) and as a result, striving to be independent. Although Sandridge is unsure of her decisions to enter into relationships, she has neversounded more sure of herself as an artist. ‘EYES WIDE’ radiates reassurance.
Coupled with the release of ‘EYES WIDE’ Sandridge has today announced tour datesfor Melbourne and Sydney.
