Two years after the release of The Observatory’s Catacombs comes the Singapore band’s first remix album. Widely regarded as The Observatory’s darkest and angriest release, Catacombs is a texturally complex and viscerally emotional album, a study in delusion, insanity and obsession. Now, 11 respected artists from Singapore, China, Norway, Thailand/Japan, and the US, have been invited to enter the vortex of The Observatory and rebuild their own sonic worlds from the detritus of that landmark album.

Titled after a key lyric from Catacombs, Behind These Eyes sees these 11 visionaries steering the trajectories of the original album in different directions, resulting in a sprawling double LP that is by visionaries steering the trajectories of the original album in various directions, resulting in a sprawling double LP that is by turns more violent, calming, morose, euphoric, abstract, and elegiac.

While listeners new to The Observatory will find in these disparate tracks a strange but certain unity of spirit borne from passionate experimentalism, fans of the band will find, over the four vinyl sides, a lingering sensation of familiar displacement and the uncanny. An album forged out of friendships and collaborations, Behind These Eyes is jointly released by The Observatory and Ujikaji.
