Close Your Eyes And See is The Blackeyed Susans’ seventh album and their first collection of new material in over a decade.
Long, reverby trails of pedal steel, tremolo guitar, violin and keyboards combine to create evocative soundscapes for the album’s dreamlike torch songs, bruised ballads and atmospheric rockers. The results are lush, beautiful and mysterious.
Featuring the single Lover or the Loved.
