RADICAL SOFTNESS - The split

In the summer of 2017, Crystal Eyes and embarked on the Radical Softness cross-Canadian tour. With a mission to play shows featuring bands with female-identifying members from coast to coast, RADICAL SOFTNESS was a celebration of femininity, women in music and hardworking dream pop rock and roll. In 2019, these two acts have come together to release Radical Softness - The Split in commemoration of their partnership and the community they've built.

RADICAL SOFTNESS COMES OUT FEB. 12th!

CRYSTAL EYES are an Indie dream rock band with touchstones of psych, shoegaze, 60’s pop and 90’s grunge. Led by vocalist/guitarist Erin Jenkins, the band features warm effect-drenched guitar and synth, at times layered or alternately stripped down. Their recordings are defined by live off the floor performances and the analogue recording techniques of producer/musician Chris Dadge (Chad van Gaalen, Alvvays, Lab Coast).

 

Drawing on the vastness of the landscape and the mental and spiritual tension that results from its destruction and creation, Crystal Eyes have thrived in a diverse and supportive cross-Canadian music scene, honing their live show through multiple tours and as consistent hometown favourites.

 

Crystal Eyes have released two albums on Canadian indie labels since forming in 2016, with two new singles on RADICAL SOFTNESS - The Split with Marlaena Moore out on DOUBLE LUNCH RECORDS Feb. 12!
