Bedroom Eyes is the New Hampshire-based quartet of RJ Murphy, Adam Meran, Danny Boyd and Rob Skelly. With a sound evoking the reverb-soaked jangle of Creation Records and the shimmering noise-rock of late 80s Slumberland gems, Bedroom Eyes have been steadily releasing an impressive output since their 2012 debut, What Are You Wrong With. Following Honeysuckle (2015) and Nerves (2019) Bedroom Eyes’ skillful hybrid of articulate guitars and squealing feedback culminates here with their latest full-length Turned Away, releasing fall 2023 on à La Carte Records.
Having formed in 2010 by Murphy and Meran, the pair met in the southern New Hampshire DIY/hardcore punk scene, both sharing a kindred desire to explore songwriting in the vein of noise rock, shoegaze, and 90s alternative. After recruiting drummer Rob Skelly and guitarist Mike Spires for their debut, Bedroom Eyes quickly amassed a following in the New England underground scene, playing alongside contemporaries Infinity Girl, Young Adults, and Soccer Mom. Following Mike Spires’ leave, Boston-area bassist Danny Boyd then stepped-in for the band’s sophomore album Honeysuckle. Under this lineup, the band has opened for acts such as The Appleseed Cast, No Joy, Young Prisms, and Slow Crush.Bedroom Eyes’ forthcoming LP Turned Away was mixed by Elliott Frazier of Ringo Deathstarr and recorded by Justin Pizzoferrato of Sonelab Recording. Pushing boundaries of comfort with each release and employing abstract lyricism wrought in anxiety and exploration of change, Bedroom Eyes crafts a sonic space that feels like an effortless marriage of extremes. At times serene and at others, raucous and discordant, the band’s unique articulation of the shoegaze genre is a masterful rarity. “Brood”, the first single from Turned Away releases digitally on May 30th.
