Accessory "Eyes For Berlin"

Accessory has released a new single called “Eyes For Berlin” via the Brooklyn label Fire Talk.

This is the Synth laden sound of Jason Balla of Ne-Hi, Dehd, and Earring. This is the first new music from Balla’s solo project since his 2018 debut album, Blue Tape.

The song is about finding “new eyes” in moments and surroundings both new and familiar. Here is the graceful way Balla phases it; "It's about finding new eyes. Seeing the old and everyday that has become the background of my life with a fresh sense of wonder. Years ago, I went to Berlin, crashed on a friend's floor and walked and walked. Even through the cold faced grey of Berlin winter, the city felt so full of life and it all felt so new to me. There are moments where I have these eyes again in the most surprising of places: an old neighborhood I used to live in, a friend's face, the sunset through the McDonald's golden arches out my bedroom window. And they all remind me that the world can be beautiful and good."

Dehd recently announced a Spring tour with a hint of new music and more dates to come.
