Minnesota Made Music: Early Eyes

Minneapolis has always had such an incredible music scene, and lately many local bands are taking over the Twin Cities with their catchy tunes, energy, and passion for music. I have had the chance to see many incredible local bands, but lately one that has caught my eye is a band called, "Early Eyes."

Early Eyes is an indie/"jangle pop" band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The band is composed of four members, Jake Berglove on guitar/vocals, Des Lawrence on bass, Wyatt Fuller on drums, and Henry Patterson on guitar. Each member brings something unique to the band which comes together to create an incredible sound. The band has played multiple shows around the Twin Cities recently and in such a short time has already gained a following. It will be so much fun watching this band continue to grow.

I had the chance to ask the band a few questions. Check them out:

1. What has been your favorite live performance as a band so far?

"Our favorite show to date was headlining the Planned Parenthood fundraiser at the Triple Rock. We got to play with our buddies The Happy Children, and raised $500 with our good friends Zeke, Yvonne, and Gavin from Subaquatic Record. It was a blast!"

2. Why did you guys choose to play the music genre that you do?

"We all come from different musical backgrounds, and are influenced by a variety of musical styles. We never really decided on or defined a genre for ourselves. When we started playing music, and writing songs together they just took on their own sounds."

3. What do you do in your free time besides music?

"We're all full time students, so there's a lot of homework involved, and, obviously, we love spending time with our amazing amigos."

4. Who have been your musical influences?

Jake - Marvin Gaye, Shaky Graves, D'Angelo, Amy Winehouse, and The Cardigans.

Des - Marvin Gaye, J Dilla, Miles Davis, Phish, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, D'Angelo, and The Velvet Underground.

Wyatt - The 1975, Tears for Fears, The Beach Boys, and Little Commets

Henry - The Eagles, Michael McDonald, Paul Simon, Tom Petty, Mick Jagger, Steely Dan, The Strokes, and Jonathan Rado.

5. What is the meaning behind your song, "Change Your Season?"

"Change Your Season is about confusing love for a person with love for intoxication."

Listen To "Change Your Season" Here.

6. What is your songwriting process?

"Usually someone comes to everyone else with an idea and then we jam it out until it sounds good."

7. Do you have any pre-show rituals?

"We really should, shouldn't we."

8. Which song did you enjoy writing the most and why?

"Probably "Good Hearts" because it turned into a song in about 20 minutes, and it was just an all around fun time."

9. As a band have you learned any lessons so far in your career?

"There have been many self-learned lessons, but we've learned so much from other people too. For instance, Caleb, Mitchell, and Judah from The Happy Children showed us how fun a show could be."

10. What are your future plans? What are you working on currently? Any new songs, shows, etc?

"We're all students, but ideally we'd like to make a career out of playing music to you friendly folks. We're working on an EP at the moment, but we're always writing more songs."

If you haven't had the chance to check out Early Eyes' music or see them live I highly recommend that you do! Don't miss out! Find out about local shows from the band's social media.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
