The Post War Years have recently released their first single, “All Eyes,” off their forthcoming album. James Yuill has given the pop track a synth-heavy remix. Post War Years’ singer Henry Riggs explains that the track is about the uncertainty of youth.
“I suppose it’s a comment on the inward self-analysis that so many people seem to go through during their mid-20s,” Riggs says. “What am I doing in life? What does the future hold? Etcetera…”
Riggs considers “All Eyes” to be an untraditional pop song, because of the way it’s structured. “The unusual thing about this song is that there’s no lyric during the chorus, which is probably tantamount to pop suicide,” he says. “Instead, a melodic, pitch-shifted primal scream felt like the natural alternative. We went with it.”
