From Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, Stuyedeyed [STĪ-died] are raw, riotous, direct and they want you to join them for Moments of Terribleness, their new EP. Having grown up in a “New York-for-some” concrete jungle, Stuyedeyed’s songs are mused by their Latinx roots – and you can hear it with every scream and pause coming out of singer/songwriter/guitarist Nelson Antonio Hernandez-Espinal, bassist Humberto Geñao, drummer Luis Ruelas, and guitarist George Ramirez. Moments of Terribleness, is an explosive excavation of self-identity and assimilation, and was lovingly crowdfunded thanks to their devout fanbase. This EP memorializes vanity in an area of individualism by deconstructing what’s considered “cool”.
A release from the drudgery of everyday life. Resistance by audio. Loud and urgent, their music breeds a beautiful chaos evocative of each member’s experiences. In our time of division, the four-piece brings their contexts into the forefront…unabashedly reimagining through their (mostly) brown mouths, the sound of white Americana owned by the Lous, Bobs, and Iggys. Publications like Paste Magazine heralded them as one of NYC’s must know bands of 2018. Native Sun reflects the sound of immigrant America as noted by Noisey – exploring and empowered by the will to make music against all hostility. Their debut EP, Songs Born From Love and Hate, was released in November 2017 via PaperCup Music/Buen Dia Records.
Frontman Danny Gomez met lead guitarist Jake Pflum as a kid in Florida. Life led them apart and reunited them on a random evening in the city. They rekindled their friendship over their mutual obsession with The Rolling Stones, The Velvet Underground, The Stooges, Neil Young, etc. Immediately, they forced their best friend Alexis Castro to pick up the drums and just go with it. Bassist Mo Martinez came to America at the height of 2016’s turmoil after uprooting from Monterrey, Mexico and naturally completed the band’s lineup (accompanied as well with sporadic appearances on keys from Detroit’s favorite mystic child Juju Anderson) … thus the swindle continues.
