Keep on creating such beautiful art,you are an amazing musician and you deserve all the best. I hope to see you soon.
A lot of kisses,hugs & love from Argentina.
Eye Opener was one of the first songs written by the Dots. I remember Jonathan and I really thinking of it as the kind of song R.E.M. would write. I’m not sure if it is or not. I kept throwing around the R.E.M. record Monster, a record I love, as a reference as we were writing that song. I’ve noticed that I write about eyes a lot. Perception. Seeing. Being seen. All of that. Being open. Being closed. Being.
