Mulholland Drive by Eyedress
On his fifth studio album, Mulholland Drive, Eyedress’ Idris Vicuña drifts in and out of the lanes of distortion-heavy rock, synthed-out funk, and charming indie-pop. The album’s features are as refreshingly unique as its sound — with contributions from an all-star lineup including King Krule, Dâm-Funk, Paul Cherry, and Dent May. Overall, Mulholland Drive is dedicated to appreciating the beauty in simple pleasures like family car rides as well as the complicated journey of self-acceptance. As his music starts to get the attention it deserves, Mulholland Drive is a testament to Vicuña’s determination to not lose sight of himself or those close to him on his journey to the top.
