With a sound that looks back on pop music as far as its horizon, Tears In X-Ray Eyes are very hard to define and impossible to pigeon-hole. A great deal of work has gone into this mix of electronica, huitars, strings and orchestral percussion.
Created by Tim Closs in his south London bedroom, with help from Anthony Christmas (drums), Cameron Miller (bass), Alexa Beattie (viola) and Tom Arthurs (trumpet), The Way We Live Now twists and turns through a range of moods, tones and emotions, peaking at the amazing indie-rock eruption of Electricy.

Bedroom producers are split into two types: those who can tell when their music is bad and those who can’t. Tim Closs is either the former or he never writes bad music.
