Mrs Magician premiere new song “Eyes All Over Town” — listen

on April 15, 2016, 11:45am

Stare long enough at the artwork for Bermuda (seen below), the forthcoming album from San Diego’s Mrs Magician, and you just may convince yourself that you’re being hypnotized and sucked into alternate world. The image is no coincidence as it not only matches the LP’s themes of addiction, religion, and “the incoherent yet intoxicating aroma of modern day conspiracy theories,” but also the brooding, urgent punk that lines its 11 tracks.

Case in point: “Eyes All Over Town”, the band’s latest offering. From the unnerving, Big Brother-like title, to the way frontman Jacob Turnbloom shivers over angular riffs, “Oh, it makes me nervous, oh it makes me wanna crawl back,” it serves as something of an embodiment of all that the album represents. Even John Reis (Drive Like Jehu, Rocket from the Crypt) leaves a haunting fingerprint through his production work here.

Careful not to reveal too much of the mystery, Turnbloom tells Consequence of Sound little about the song, saying, “Lyrics are printed, people can take what they want from that one.”

Below, find the stream and those lyrics.

Lyrics:

Run past the rivers, & run past the seas,
Oh I don’t wanna, Oh I don’t wanna go back.
When it rains, I save my pennies, when it pours I toast to stay dry.
Oh I don’t wanna, Oh I don’t wanna go back.

Don’t mess around, because I’ve got eyes all over town.
Eye’s all over town (Repeat)

It’s a joke, to all my friends it’s a joke, but the joke is on me.
Oh, it makes me nervous, oh it makes me wanna crawl back.
So I run, to the water, that Siren’s bell it tolls for me.
Oh it makes me nervous, oh it makes me nervous, oh it makes me, oh it makes me wanna dive in.

Don’t mess around, because I’ve got eyes all over town.
Eye’s all over town (Repeat)

I just wanna forget, I just wanna forget
My mistakes & regrets, my mistakes & regrets.

Don’t mess around, because I’ve got eyes all over town.
Eye’s all over town (Repeat)
