London based German musician, songwriter, and producer Atka's latest single was inspired by Nabokov's novel The Eye. "Eye in the Sky" explores the loss of self while knowing that we're always being observed by someone else. The song is a haunting avant pop track that pierces deep into your psyche without you even having to be aware of the subject matter. It's slow pace adds to the song, particularly the way the song's unique instrumentation wanders in at will. "Eye in the Sky" gives the listener such an unsettling feeling that you can't quite put your finger on, which is the perfect feeling for a song about always being watched.
