|Big Eyes Stake My Claim Limited Vinyl LP
Big Eyes, the brainchild of Kait Eldridge, is a band that has spent its career successfully defying classification. They're a punk band with pop sensibilities; they're a power pop group with a hard rock edge. Big Eyes are different things to different people, and yet have always felt ultimately content cemented "in-between" the scenes. Stake My Claim, the band's third full length, was recorded throughout the fall and winter of 2,315. It opens with their heaviest song to date, the title track, which sets a tone of Kait at a crossroad: "'Cause nothing stays the same / stake my claim." Her lyrics are centered around dissatisfaction and a need for change. Throughout the entirety of Big Eyes' discography, there is an undercurrent of sadness and frustration, but within Stake My Claim, Kait has found a sense of acceptance.
