Effervescent three-piece Screens 4 Eyes provide our daily dosage of lucid dreampop. Hailing from Israel and unmistakeably passionate, the Tel Aviv group cradle their audience with a renewed blend of sound from the past and the future.
Screens 4 Eyes moves into the spotlight amidst the renaissance of dreampop synth – coupled with shows such as Stranger Things and mainstream blockbusters like Blade Runner 2049, synth music is simply back in style. It serves to create nostalgia for a new wave of Gen X-ers. With beautifully simple vocals laced over smooth beats, Screens 4 Eyes are a nice listen, but ultimately have no definite flair to help them stand out amongst similar groups. Within an ever-shifting music industry, it’s important – now more than ever – to create a sense of uniqueness. It’ll be interesting to see where the band go next.
Whilst trying to find some information on the band themselves, I came across a review by Dave Franklin of Dancing About Architecture that perfectly summed up my feelings for this EP; ‘a film score to a movie too beautiful to be made.’ To be candid, this is not an EP that I’d listen to regularly, but it stands out for being a great and thematically orchestrated piece. Screens 4 Eyes will certainly fall onto my playlist for concentration, and they deserve commendation for their atmospheric effort, not to mention the band’s personality that radiates through their craft.
