Eyedress is the alias of Filipino artist Idris Vicuña, formerly lead guitarist of psychedelic indie/noise-pop band Bee Eyes. Born in 1990 in the city of Makati, Philippines, Vicuña relocated to the US with his family at the age of 6. He was raised in Phoenix, Arizona before moving to San Clemente, California at the age of 13, where he started playing bass in a Crass-influenced crust-punk band.
In 2005, Vicuña moved back to Manila where he formed Bee Eyes with friends Julius Valledor and Diego Abad. Valledor taught Vicuña the art of sampling and making loops. During downtime from the band Vicuña pursued his own project, which would eventually become Eyedress.
Eyedress released his debut album for a record label, ’Manila Ice’ on Lex in 2017. Described as an album about love and survival in the Philippines. His second album ‘Sensitive G’ was released by Lex in late 2018.
After a EP including tracks 'Jealous' and 'Trauma' Eyedress dropped 'Let's Skip To The Wedding' on Valentines day with a 16mm video directed by Angela Stephenson. Watch it below;
