Due for release on September 13 via Topshelf Records, ‘All Around You’ serves as the highly anticipated follow-up to 2021’s celebrated ‘Nature Of Things’. In line with the album announcement, the band have also shared their first single from ‘All Around You’, titled ‘Yearning’. Pre-order your copy of ‘All Around You’ here.
The band’s lead Nur Wahidah sings of her newfound perspective that nature is all-encompassing. She said of ‘Yearning’ via a press statement: “In the past few years, opening my mind up to the little things around me allowed me to get closer with nature and myself. I felt like as I learnt more about my relationship with nature, the love I felt for my loved ones grew deeper (and vice versa).”
“I feel that my love for nature (and myself) started to parallel the love I have for my loved ones! Every day I thank all the trees around me for reminding me of the love I am capable of receiving and giving. Some days it is particularly beautiful out and it cocoons me in a familiar warmth,” Wahidah continued.

‘Nature Of Things’ scored a four-star review from Adrian Yap for NME. Yap wrote: “‘Nature Of Things’ definitely stretches the imagination as to what Subsonic Eye’s ‘sound’ is and can be. At the same time, it also opens new doors for the band sonically. This is a record by a band at the height of their creative prowess, unperturbed by trying new things and managing to deliver compelling music along the way.”
The album was named NME’s best Asian album of 2021, and was crowned the Best Album by an Asian Artist at the BandLab NME Awards 2022.
