Eye & the Arrow

Although this blog entry has no visuals, Eye & the Arrow is a Denver band to watch...closely!

After experiencing live shows and listening to this EP on repeat I still can't figure out what makes this trio work so well. Perhaps its Paul's fresh yet familiar melodies meshed with a drumming style only Mark can claim. The rhythm exchanges between all (Jason on bass!) happen rather unexpectedly. The final song of the set "Stutter Beat" is a good example of uncatchable rhythms and swirling notes that make for moments of uncertainty of where it all might land. But it does, gracefully, leaving you wanting another go around.
