His successful independent music run has recently been recognized with a major label co-sign from RCA Records. The Filipino creative’s latest release stays true to his formula of alternative sonics, partnered with trippy visuals.
Eyedress just dropped a mellow new song titled “Escape From The Killer” and the single comes in two different versions.

Lets take look at some of the outfits worn in Weekend 1.

Vanessa Hudgens is the queen of Coachella and her outfits do not disappoint. The wanderlust looks she bought to the festival throughout the years is a staple that isn't going anywhere. This year, the Hudgens sisters dress up in PowerPuff Girls colors in pink, blue, and green.
Nicole Scherzinger brings the animal print pattern to the desert. The outfit screams boho-chic plus it's paired with oversized sunnies and accessories to complement, it's perfect.
Valkyrae keeps it comfy and simple in a two-piece outfit with mesh pants. Whenever at Coachella, you definitely have to keep yourself cool so you can't forget the bucket hat!
Ate Icy brings the color with reds, blues, and gold in her outfit. We're loving the hair and the two-piece outfit designed with a textured pattern.

Jay-R and Mica
The couple take to the dessert in a desert appropriate rock and cowgirl themed outfit. Mica rocks a cowboy hat and mixes it with a boho-fringe top with boots for the dusty conditions. Jay-R keeps it rock-n-roll with KISS muscle tee ready to fend away the bright weather.

Remember the old school games that used to be played online before high-definition came along? Filipino artist, Idris Vicuña-aka EYEDRESS is bringing it back in his latest music video for the track, "Smoke & Mirrors." Watch him and the crew featuring NA-KEL SMITH, BOOFPAXKMOOKY, CASHCACHE cruise around the city and kick it together. Roll with them as the vibe of the music video isn't just for aesthetics. It also introduces the EYEDRESS game that's available both for PC and Mac consoles.
According to the singer, the inspiration for the track comes from raps on SoundCloud. He says, "I've been inspired by the jazz chords and synthesizers they would use on their plug beats to the point where I felt some sort of connection, because the sound was pretty similar to what I was trying to do making indie rock songs."
EYEDRESS is gearing up to perform at this year's Coachella Festival alongside Fil-British singer beabadoobee and other 88Rising artists. Catch them both weekends on the Sunday lineup with EYEDRESS performing on the Sonora stage and beabadoobee taking on the Gobi stage.
