about

Almost four years after their debut-album ‘Temporarily Colourblind’, Eyemèr returns with a new EP called ‘Good Mourning To You’. The record focuses on themes of mental health and non-binary gender identity.

The title ‘Good Mourning To You’ is a play on words. It refers to the grieving process that Eyemèr went through when they lost someone to suicide. When someone dies in such a way, feelings of guilt often haunt those who are left behind. In addition, Eyemèr experienced a process similar to ‘mourning’ when someone in their family could no longer be truly present due to a mental illness. With the saying ‘Good Mourning To You’, Eyemèr wants to uplift those who are currently processing a loss.

For many years already, Eyemèr has been working to break the stigma surrounding mental health using melancholic indie sounds and activist lyrics. Since 2018, which marks the year the artist came out of the closet as non-binary (not man or woman), they have also started writing about their genderqueerness. Eyemèr hopes to spotlight both the mental health theme and non-binary theme and normalize these.

In order to be able to finance this new record, Eyemèr launched a crowdfunding campaign through which fans and patrons could invest in the new record for a period of thirty days. The campaign was a success and even surpassed the goal amount of 3.500€.

Track Name: On My Own
call me lonely
call me fragile and a bore
if that’s what describes me
I don’t mind your tone
people are trying
to destroy our world
don’t arrest me
it’s not my fault

my best days I’ve spent on my own

death is all around me
but I refuse to let it touch my bones
we all hope that
we’ll live and never get old

my best days I’ve spent on my own
my best days I’ve spent on my own

on my own

you are not alone
if your best days are spent on your own
if your friends say you should go out more
