Water From Your Eyes Invert Interpol’s “Something Changed”
Water From Your Eyes have shared their version of Interpol’s track “Something Changed” as part of the latter’s Interpolations’ project, which sees songs from Interpol’s latest album The Other Side Of Make-Believe re-imagined by different artists.
The version takes the original’s piano shuffle and brooding vocals and subjecting them to an expertly wielded sonic and rhythmic sledgehammer, the interpolation adds vocals from Water From Your Eyes vocalist Rachel Brown. “The idea was to invert the tone of the song, like a photo negative,” says Water From Your Eyes’ Nate Amos, “reframing change from something foreboding into something encouraging – as well as creating a conversation between Paul and Rachel in order to place the thoughts externally rather than internally.”
The track joins recently released interpolations from Makaya McCraven (“Big Shot City”), Jeff Parker (“Passenger”) and Jesu (“Toni”), with Daniel Avery’s contribution to follow.
Water From Your Eyes are confirmed for Summerstage in Central Park this month alongside Horsegirl, Iceage & Lifeguard. The band will play a handful of US west coast dates with Melody’s Echo Chamber in October ahead of their appearance at Levitation Fest in Austin. Next month, the band will appear at festivals across Europe, including Oya Night, Way Out West, Lowlands, Green Man, & MS Dockville. In November they will embark on an EU headline tour including Pitchfork Festival in London, Paris and Berlin. The band’s current release Everyones Crushed is now available via Matador Records.
