proun – “I’m Your Eyes”


Austin-based project proun impress with a nocturnal rock sound on “I’m Your Eyes,” described as “a reflection on gender and identity, a stream of consciousness both musically and lyrically.”

A moody guitar crawl is punctuated with sporadic, twangy pulses — crafting a palpable sense of momentum. The vocals exude a weary, contemplative tone, remarking “my mind is upside down.” An impassioned vocal rise coincides with thumping percussion and rousing guitars as the second minute approaches; this moment is a wholly satiating payoff, culminating from the compelling, atmospheric first half. “I’m Your Eyes” is a stirring rock success from proun, led by Jamie Weed.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2023’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
