Eyedress has popped up again, with a track for anyone who can’t decide if they like Drake or Mac Demarco best

You didn't imagine Idris Vicuña all those times – he's releasing his debut album in May

Idris Vicuña – the Filipino bedroom producer known as Eyedress – has spend years popping up in the all the right places, only to drop a frazzled track or phone-filmed video here and there, and then duck away again. When his name comes back around – like now – you think, ‘Eyedress… yeah… that guy who was picked up by XL? I liked him.’

Today he’s back, finally with news of his debut album on Lex Records, confirming that freebie ‘Shapeshifter’ in 2015 was a mixtape.

This ‘proper’ album is called ‘Manila Ice’ and will be released May 12th. But first, here’s the album’s title track – Eyedress’ best blend of mellow RnB and Mac Demarco-ish guitar echo. Fall out of bed to this one.

Help keep Loud And Quiet going

As an independent title, it’s become harder than ever to make the numbers add up.
