I saw this trio of Canadian brothers two years ago at Lollapalooza on one of the side stages and they stood out among the plethora of bands that I saw as one of the most promising. The brothers Erickson of Inward Eye were fed a heavy diet of The Clash, The Kinks, and The Stones and you can feel the influences raging through their rambunctious sound. They recently released a self-titled EP which rings of enough promise and energy to make this listener look out for the full-length coming out later this year. What will win over more fans will be their high-energy live shows and with being added to the Vans Warped Tour, Inward Eye will be sure to attract many a rebellious youth.
