"The Band of the Eye"

Incorporating some funky guitar with bursts of heavy riffs is what Bristol three-piece, The Band of the Eye, sound like. Think Nirvana with their groove on. Eclectic and likeable, their songs are all somewhat different. A charming band with an immense amount of potential and some great songs. These guys have big plans. - Reverb Magazine

"The Band of the Eye review"

Strangely addictive stuff from Bristol based grizzled power poster trio The Band of the Eye. A combo refusing to buckle to the "do you wanna be in our gang" mentality preferring instead to go off on their musical expedition. - Losing Today

"The Band of the Eye review"

Take addictive riffs, infectious melodies and blend them with a sonic garage-rock sound and the influences of Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Queens of the Stone Age (among others), and you have the alternative rock outfit that call themselves “The Band Of The Eye”... The cut “Dress Down Boy” is especially infectious, with funky and slashing guitar work, secure bass lines and exploding vocals, the song forces you to bob your head in approval. The band takes it to another level with the supreme slide guitar magic and Talking Heads meets Camper Van Beethoven-delivery of the cut called “Beatnik Acoustics.” “Why Are You So Awful” has the classic sound of Van Morrison’s “Wild Night,” but with an alternative twist and disciplined re-invention that has you craving for more. One thing is certain; this rock trio is going places, likely straight to the top of the charts. - iLike2rock

The Band of the Eye is included on the Panther compilation released in July 2008 by Leaping Cat Records.
