Eyelids are a Portland-based psych pop outfit featuring current and former members of The Decemberists, Guided by Voices, Drive-By Truckers, and The Jicks. Along with their internal star power, they also count such acts as Robert Pollard, Elliott Smith, Stephen Malkmus, and Grandaddy’s Jason Lytle as past collaborators.
Following their 2015 debut album, 854, Eyelids are gearing up to release a follow-up titled or next month. For assistance on the 12-track collection, the band has called on one of its famous friends in Peter Buck.
The R.E.M. co-founder and lead guitarist not only produced the entirety of the LP, but he also stars in the music video for its latest single, “Falling Eyes”. Directed by Chris Slusarenko & John Clark, it finds Eyelids rescuing Buck from what might otherwise have been a catastrophic birthday shindig.
