Formed in , Bright Eyes have released nine studio albums with another one on its way later this month and each of their records explore different sonic territories—folk, emo, country, pop, indie rock. In Cassadaga , this happens in a magical setting with cowboy vibes and no laws; whereas Digital Ash in a Digital Urn exists within a morbid electro-pop atmosphere, like a realm of cyberspace. The record travels through water and fire, life and death, sickness and health. Charming harmonies and a keyboard are layered throughout the song, and an extravagant culmination of the two closes it out. This Fevers and Mirrors track best demonstrates the vague Victorian aura this album plays with.

Songwriting and guitar playing extraordinaire Conor Oberst has spent the better part of the last two decades playing deeply captivating songs that have rightfully gleaned comparisons to the great Bob Dylan. As part of his project with Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott, Bright Eyes , Oberst has released gut-wrenching gem after gem, fully investing himself in the emotional capabilities of music that conveys a bold desire to understand life. Oberst brazenly ventures into the most emotionally damaging territories, pushing at questions of love and life, no matter where it takes him.
I was asked by the nice people at Team Rock to compile a list of my top 10 songs by any of my favourite artists. But recently I finished a pretty long tour and was lucky enough to play a very fun show at a venue called the Slowdown in Omaha, Nebraska. So here are the best 10 Bright Eyes songs in no particular order, other than how I heard them and think they should be listened to. Someone put it on a mixtape I had come across and never labelled it and I asked everyone I met for a month if they knew who it was. That record got me through that tour and many more to come. I remember sitting in the van with a CD walkman listening to that record over and over. I think at one point in the song someone turns on a hairdryer in lieu of distortion and it convinces the listener that the song hits a second plateau.
