loaf eye is an album i’ve been working on for the past 2 years since finishing the debut tomemitsu album, m_o_d_e_s in 2013. the overarching theme for most of the songs on loaf eye deals with self exploration. looking inwards and becoming at ease with who i am as a musician and human, rather than the themes of love and loss emphasized on m_o_d_e_s.
