Eye Am, the band featuring Type O Negative guitarist Kenny Hickey and drummer Johnny Kelly alongside current Crowbar frontman Kirk Windstein and ex-Crowbar bassist Todd Strange, is now streaming their second single "Cryptomnesia". If you're looking for a doomed-out anthem to blast right into the weekend, this is absolutely it. And don't just take our word for it – our "Cryptomnesia" contest winner can vouch for the song's greatness too.
"I really think 'Cryptomnesia' is a perfect example of a new band finding it's own style and sound," said Windstein. "I love [our debut single] 'Dreams Always Die With The Sun', but we had a lot more time putting together 'Cryptomnesia', and the end result is awesome! The song is very hypnotic to me. I never get tired of hearing it, and that's a great thing!"
I feel that 'Cryptomnesia' is ambitious and really widens the pallet for Eye Am moving forward," added Hickey. "It wasn't designed with that in mind it just sort of grew from a central riff like any other song, but then just spread outward-eventually incorporating acoustic guitars, multiple lead guitar breaks and key changes.
"I think it came out quite powerful and we're really proud of it. Now we've seem to have set a pretty high standard for ourselves and I feel like we're going to have to not just maintain it but keep pushing the envelope to see where it leads us. Discovering new sounds and taking risks go hand in hand. Sometimes it works and sometimes it hits the wall but it's always more interesting than taking the obvious route."
"Cryptomnesia" is available on all streaming services here.
