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.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
