“White Eyes” by Eastern Barbers – A Song Review

     “White Eyes” is a well arranged collection of instrumental techniques that deserves close attention. Merely as an example, at the 1:14 mark, there are two guitars being played with fundamentally opposite approaches. The lower frequency guitar is vibration-suppressed, slow-played, while the higher frequency guitar is played to achieve a tremolo effect. And in the final seconds of the song, guitar strumming plays an important role. Similarly, the percussion cycles through various approaches, with at least one involving a drum stick but not a drum head.
      “White Eyes” on one of four tracks on an EP released by Eastern Barbers in November 2015. The name of the EP is “Everybody's Elsewhere.” Eastern Barbers is a four-member band based in London.
