Room Full of Eyes

Album: Option Paralysis (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Bassist Liam Wilson told The Associated Press about this track: "This song kinda came out of nowhere during rehearsals; like we were momentarily possessed by the spirit of it and once it was unleashed to the studio, the real demons showcased themselves. Full of contrasting and collapsing patterns that grab you and just as quickly kick you to the curb; vocals that interrogate you with good cop/bad cop crooning; and some twisted, Latin-inspired stringed lashings helped make this one the underdog favorites for many of us."
