Vestige of the Vox Populi # 40

By Sean Stubblefield

Eisley has released the video for an amazing new song called Invasion… the first new single from Combinations. Available August 14th--accompanied by yet another tour, this is their second album.

Happy Birthday to me!

The band members are self-proclaimed sci-fi fans (the band’s name derives from “Mos Eisley“-- a Star Wars reference), and the song is inspired by the book entitled Invasion of the Body Snatchers. The video itself is an artistically subtle, yet sublime, representational re-imagining of that story.

From what I’ve heard so far-- both musically and anecdotally, Eisley has grown more sophisticated, proficient and bold. In terms of their musical style and production, as well as promotion. They now have a Youtube channel for behind the scenes vids, currently featuring shots of the album in progress. Combinations was originally scheduled for spring, but the band chose to postpone the project while they embarked on another tour, giving them more time to refine their music and plans for this next album.
