Cecilia::Eyes biography
Of the two Belgian bands that specializes into the usual brand of post rock, Cecilia::Eyes comes from Morlanwez, a city in the the South-western part of Wallonie, in a hilly region where plenty of mysteries abound and the group has so far made two albums with typical Post rock names.

The double guitar quartet plays a mostly instrumental Post rock, where the main striking ingredient appears to be drummer Xavier Waernburgh (also on keyboards when needed), but the Thys brothers appear to have strong roles as well. Their first album Echoes From The Attic was recorded in the summer of 05 and featured a friend of their Johanne Lovera on vocals on The Airscrew tracks. The group managed to survive, often depending on concerts in the Northern part of the country, and recorded late in 07 and mixed and mastered by Pierre Vervloesem (ex X-LS). Their gradual increase of profile will have them highlight in two lowlands prog festivals latter this year.

Mountain Tops Are Sometimes Closer To The Moon
Cecilia::Eyes Post Rock/Math rock

Review by Sean Trane
Special Collaborator Prog Folk

3 stars Cecilia::Eyes' second album is continuing much on the same musical path as its predecessor, but in terms of album preparation, the group managed a very interesting booklet where you can make your story take the path you wish and programs the tracks in the order you decided in the story you wrote. However, besides this kind of novelty (had never seen this before), Mountain Tops is just another typical post rock album, neither better nor worse than the hundreds of so

Starting on frightening lugubrious noises, Flags quickly rises to its cruising speed, and the following tracks bring little more, the fourth One Million Whales being a rework of a track from their first album. Standing out sonically-speaking is the slower and less "noisy" 9-mins Song For Alda (drummer's new wife's name) and the 12-mins Peter Star, a drummer's fest.

Just another post rock album, but this time with an interesting twist in the booklet, (in the genre, the booklet is usually anything but seriously taken), but otherwise, even with the slight tracks' sonic differences, there is absolutely nothing new under the sun.

Echoes From The Attic
Cecilia::Eyes Post Rock/Math rock

Review by Sean Trane
Special Collaborator Prog Folk

3 stars Describing a post rock is still quite tough for this writer, especially when these groups usually take on the GYBE! and Tarentel sound. Indeed the Morlanwez quartet has the typical guitary sound that appeared to be the norm in the mid to late 90's Post rock, but took its roots from U2's The Edge's typical string twanging born from the Joshua Tree period. The main feature in Cecilia::Eyes is the unusual freedom given to their drummer, although the loudness he's also mixed in the music might just be as striking a feature as well.

Most of the album, originally thought to be a demo only, but soon gaining a full-fledged album status is made from a straight-ahead no-frills post rock with the usual gloom and doom ambiances, except in the unusual Airscrew, where a young friend answering by the Lovera name comes tossing on both parts of the track, her voices sounding like a cross of Lauper and Bangles with some Tori Amos along the lines. The album's last track One Million Whale will be reworked in their nest album Mountain Tops.

If Post Rock is your thing, no doubt either of Cecilia::Eyes' albums will please you. If you're a more casual fan, you might see a lesser interest, but both remain a typical genre's average album.

Thanks to Sean Trane for the artist addition.
