Although she left Titus Andronicus behind and is currently fronting the folk-rock band Leda, guitarist and activist Amy Klein has not forgotten about her love for punk rock’s raw, distorted sounds and cutting lyrics. She and drummer/vocalist Catherine Tung have partnered up to form Hilly Eye. The duo signed to the New Brunswick-based punk label Don Giovanni earlier this year, and now comes the announcement of Hilly Eye’s first full-length record, Reasons To Live. The album’s first single, “Amnesia,” pits Klein’s fragile vocals against a crunchy, reverberating guitar and Tung’s steady drumbeats. Stream it below.
Don Giovanni will release Reasons To Live January 22, 2013, but before the year is out, Hilly Eye will play a couple of shows in Brooklyn. Check below for the tour dates and the Reasons To Live tracklist.
