Aussie quartet Trophy Eyes have shared details of their fourth album.
It’s called ‘Suicide and Sunshine’ and will be released through Hopeless Records on June 23rd.
It’s an album about “the human experience”
Upon announcing the album, the band said the album is about contrast; the light and the dark, beauty and tragedy.
Expanding on this frontman John Floreani explained, “It’s the human experience, what we experience and how we navigate it. The millions of tiny flashes of light that are memories and thoughts and feelings and smells, all those little moments make up a lifetime. They’re beautifully tragic because they don’t mean anything to anyone, and on the scale of everything in the universe don’t mean a damn thing. But it’s so beautiful that they happen in the first place.”
Listen to Trophy Eyes’ new single – ‘What Hurts The Most’
If you’re familiar with Trophy Eyes‘ work, then you’ll know Floreani pours plenty of emotion into his band’s work, emerging with deeply personal songs. The album’s leadoff single, ‘What Hurts The Most’, is no different. It’s been described as “a haunting song about pain, loss, and learning to say goodbye to relationships you’ve outgrown.”
The track captures Floreani distinct emotive voice, backed by a driving hook and swirling instrumentation.
