CROSSED EYES is the solo project of Jackson VanHorn, lead guitarist of TV GHOST. Here, VanHorn eschews the regular Wire-y gloom of his main gig, and instead embraces a sort-of bedroom-pop electro-maximilism, drawing heavily on 80’s Goth and New-Wave aesthetics.
It's goth-y, but fun. Like playing air hockey with Robert Smith.
"Brooding bass and a hypnotic, unwavering drumbeat set a beautifully dark stage for the reverberated guitar picking and VanHorn’s cool, yet foreboding vocals. Everything is breathy, a sense of urgency in all sounds both human and machine. It’s like listening to a car headlight shine through the thick of a night fog."
