Eyedressis Idris Vicuña, a 23-year-old Filipino armed with a second-hand PC laptop and a serious love for sorrow-edged synth pop. “Teen Spirits” is a tale of teen love gone wrong, and Eyedress himself directed the video. It’s a dreamlike tale that’s at once inspired and nonsensical – a bit like teenage love itself.
Having just extended his first ever European tour, it’s not surprising we’ll be seeing more of the Manila-based artist: ’80s pop warped via tropical humidity sounds like a winning formula to us.
