Gold Coast alt-rock trio In Eyes have shared their soaring new single Tripwire, a heavy new addition to the band’s collection, exploring the aftermath of a manipulative relationship.
Tripwire experiments with a heavier, thrashier sound while staying true to the trios alt-rock roots. Receiving its first play via triple j Unearthed TOPs on Wednesday evening, host Imogen Hanrahan coined the single “Heavy and dark as hell“, and The Soundcheck affirmed the single as “a compelling foundation for some huge things to come“.
Vocalist Rosie Jacobson rips through a gut-wrenching vocal performance, drawing from her own experiences with past naivety and blindness to manipulative and toxic behaviour. “Everyone was telling me he was bad news pretty early on, and looking back I probably could have saved myself a lot of heartache if I had listened,” Jacobson reflects, “but honestly, I was sixteen and falling in love for the first time. There was a naivety there I think we all experience when we’re young.”
