    Nine Eyes is the first EP by digitalist Dorian Zoyd. Consisting of four tracks of dark progtronics, Nine Eyes explores the uneasy and sometimes sinister relationship between us and powerful new modes of interconnection.

    Nine Eyes mixes grungy electronics with the prog-inspired sonics and intertwined vocals that underpinned Zoyd's previous incarnation as Lost Zoyd. Alongside this, multiple artists provided ocular visuals for the striking "eye matrix" adorning the EP's cover.
