Eyedress is the alias of Filipino artist Idris Vicuña, for whom this is the first album that he has created since moving to the United States. This collection of nineteen songs has Idris singing about very personal emotions whilst electric loops and guitars match the emotion with a pleasant perkiness. The journey through the album is an upbeat one as most tracks run under two minutes, so no single thought is dwelled upon for too long.

There is a break in the high tempo rhythm about half way with Trauma, which slows proceedings with a heartbeat pounding. It signals a change in pace that adds an effective dynamic to the experience. Clearly toggling residence between Manilla and the US, plus preparing to bring a child into the world has given Idris a lot to contemplate.
