Trophy Eyes have released a new song that strikes a deeply personal chord with lead singer John Floreani. The track was inspired by his return to his hometown and showcases the band’s unique fusion of punk, hardcore, modern rock, and pop.
About the song, frontman John Floreani shares: “‘Blue Eyed Boy’ was written about a trip I took back to my hometown. One friend in particular, maybe my best friend, had recently moved back and regressed into their old ways. I’d mourned the death of this friend long ago, as did the rest of us in our small social circle. To see him again brought me great childhood joy yet simultaneously an overwhelming sense of dread. I was reminded of something my mother told me as a young boy when my grandmother died; “if you see her now, like this, it’s the only way you’ll remember her. Best hold on to the good times, you’ll always have those.”
Hailing from Newcastle, Australia, the quartet has been carving out its own path in the music scene, selling out shows worldwide with their emotionally raw storytelling, poignant lyrics, and electrifying live performances. It’s clear that Trophy Eyes is poised to become a dominant force on the alternative scene.
