Tired Eyes Kingdom
Fatigue and megalomania – this is how you could read the band name. But, of course, the kingdom that stretches behind the tired eyes is one of humbleness, not of almightiness. Tired Eyes Kingdom are children of our time – but not good children. They are not concerned of taking up the contemporary music one-on-one or joining the ranks of the zeitgeist of the contemporaries. With stubborn willfulness, they deconstruct impressions from what is shimmering around them.
Now, a permanently peeling snake is anything but a beautiful playmate, yet exactly therein lays the uniqueness of Tired Eyes Kingdom. They look for change, but they admire the song and would never sacrifice it for the heat of the moment.
