Say hello to DRESS CODE, who just dropped their airy debut single/video clip, Eyesight

The Adelaide four-piece bring some dreamy soundscapes to their first release.

DRESS CODE are an Adelaide-based four-piece who've literally only been around a couple of months, but have already supported the likes of TOWNS and Pinkish Blu, with shows supporting Bakers Eddy and Good Doogs coming up. All of that without (until now that is) a debut single to share!

Lucky for them, debut track Eyesight is a pearler - all dreamy indie-rock soundscapes and lush vocals, it comes with a pretty beautifully shot little video clip too. Get to know them a little better below, and like they say, go see 'em live some time soon!

Tell us about yourselves?

We’re a four-piece band drawing from a range of different influences from post-hardcore to electronic.

What kinda tunes we talking:

Our sound is comprised of full, spacey guitar tones, attention-grabbing bass lines, punchy drum beats and infectious melodies. We’re interested a wide variety of music that motivates music that doesn’t stick to one genre. I guess you could say we fit in the alternate/rock/pop area, but we’re not necessarily bound to that.

Production/writing process:

The writing process is very much a collaborative effort, starting with a synth, guitar or bass lick, it’s jammed out until we have a full song. Although there is some thought to structure, the songs come out naturally and never feel forced. We have our own meticulous demoing process that we go through occurs before the song moves forward. We worked with Jarred Nettle from House of SAP (SA) to help us produce Eyesight.

Can you tell us about your new single, Eyesight?

Eyesight came out of our first band practice and emphasises our pop and modern influences. The song is loosely based around the feeling of being distant from the people close to us and is open to interpretation. The music video that was directed by Jack, our bassist, fits the song not only to the songs meaning but also its aesthetic direction.

Any shows coming up?

Supporting Good Doogs as a part of their Want That national tour at the end of December. We’re also in the process of organising to bring our live show interstate in the near future.

What’s the rest of the year have in store?

We’re demoing new material and are always writing. We’re in the process of finalising our second single so keep your eyes posted for that early next year.

Where can we hear more of your music?

Eyesight is available on all available streaming services, but in the meantime, you’ll have to come see us live to see more.
