about

Sophomore album from little xs for eyes, a harmony-heavy, indie pop outfit, half boy / half girl, tangled guitars and twinned synths, embarking across a soundscape of songwriter Bennie Reilly's quintessential themes: a love of nature and the nature of love, and the mess we make of both. Imagined journeys to real places through forest, jungle and ocean, singing songs of lost summers, loose kisses and longed-for landscapes; venturing somewhere but searching for everywhere else.  Throughout it all, elements of the modern world seep in, visible through the mist.

about

little xs for eyes Leinster, Ireland

littlexsforeyes@gmail.com

little xs' music tells of tragic heroes, failed lovers, empty dance floors & the unchanging seasons, taking place on trains, boats, wrestling rings & the inevitable long walk home.

Officially our favourite Irish pop band - State.ie

the most deliciously sweet hues of bitter you could possibly taste - Irish Independent

genuinely swoonsome folk-pop melodies - Irish Times

Track Name: Phantom Wings
I saw in the sky a 'v' of geese
synchronised flying to some country
south of me

Wow, take me with you south
smuggle me out

Autumnal signs
my mood declines
my compass heaves, magnetic fields
and my insides, are causing me to reel and preen
are heeding to
celestial queues
to seek out spring / and unfold the span of
on/my phantom wings

I saw in the sky a 'v' of geese
synchronised flying to some country
south of me

Moving measured formation like a
string of beads
open jawed with awe i hitched a hope
to their heels

Wow, take me with you south
smuggle me out
Track Name: Love Gets Lost (album version)
If you're gonna go
Say you wanna leave
Think we oughta talk about just what we need
I don’t wanna stay
If we’re gonna debate
Are we gonna talk ourselves into a grave

Are we going stale
Are we turning sour
Are we gonna argue for another hour
Lets address this rut
We discuss too much
Rather use my arms and lips to fix us up

Love gets lost
beneath talk
we'll find it
if we kiss

All my words have been heard
All my heart is still yours
No no need to doubt or shout or have a fall out
Coulda woulda stuck
Woulda shoulda shut up
Understood ya better when you didn’t say so much

If you're gonna go
Say you wanna leave
Think we oughta talk about just what we need
Now my heart is open
But my voice is tired
I wish my lips were swollen instead of my eyes
