Of Redeye’s early years in Texas, remains an authentic accent, and a certain form of sun kissed melancholy. Scenic roads, infinite landscapes and a radient blues warming the soul. The 3rd album release from Redeye (aka ThIsIsReDeYe), French export now Austin native, delves deeper into his alternative folk sound drenching it in a bit of psychedelia a la Cacophony Recorders (studio of producer/engineer Erik Wofford and projects like Bill Callahan, Black Angels, White Denim). The album, entitled ‘The Memory Layers’ sways from alternative folk to slowcore and bedroom pop journeying the listener across various emotional peaks and valleys. Accompanied by some choice Texas players, this recording features appearances from the cellist of Polyphonic Spree, drummer of the Baptist Generals and piano and percussion from the Dana Falconberry camp respectively. Cap that off with some tracking with and performances from Matt Pence (Midlake, Centromatic, Sarah Jaffe) and you can clearly see what drew this Frenchman to Texas.

With a baritone drawl reminiscent of The National’s Matt Berninger, Redeye’s hypnotic instrumentation swells with strings, bells and whistles with a nod to traditional folk but wrapped in a modern European songwriting sensibility, then again at times even touching upon the better part of 90’s alternative pop.

All in all, a diverse set of tones and influences amalgamates to the distinct sound that is Redeye.
