Hilly Eye was a collaboration between guitarist/vocalist Amy Klein and drummer/vocalist Catherine Tung. The duo formed in 2009 as a way to experiment with noise and melody. Their favorite band at the time was the Osaka noise band Afrirampo and they wanted to start something like that–a two girl band that was super primal and agressive, but also psychedelic and dreamy. Something really stripped down and raw that could also be beautiful. Alternating between quiet and loud, delicate melodies and big swathes of noise, contrasting elements.
