About

Island Eyes is Victoria, BC's Derek Janzen. Formerly working under the name Wand, he recently felt the need to change the name due to confusion involving another band with the same name. Derek has been quietly recording and releasing homemade alternative music from his home since 2007 and has been operating out of Victoria, BC for nearly five years. Over the years he's played with some great acts, including Mount Eerie, Car Seat Headrest, Frog Eyes, and We Are The City.

When playing live, Island Eyes incorporates drum machines, various synths, delayed guitar and driving percussion to create their unique and grandiose sound. While influenced by a diverse array of artists, among the most prominent are Phil Elverum, David Byrne, John Bender, Sufjan Stevens, and Carey Mercer.
