Joyously infectious, Eades are that gang you want to be a part of. Gorging on the eclectic sprawl of the guitar-music cannon, and latching onto the traditions that get their blood pumping, the resulting maelstrom of sound is at once effervescent, snarling and invigorating. Debut album ‘Delusion Spree’ delivers on all fronts.
Through this sonic swirl they channel the nervous stop-start energy of mid-twenties despondency affected by addiction and mental-health issues, time spent navigating life choices, micro-analysis of friendships and interactions, and yearning for less complicated days. All filtered through a satirical lens, and never lacking in self-awareness.
Self-produced, and recorded live a la inspirations Parquet Courts, Pixies and The Strokes’ early work, there is an energy alchemised by the confidence each individual member has in their craft. This is amplified by the psychic connection established by hours of practice, and the rough and tumble of auxiliary commitments as an indie-band in this day and age.
“We went in to record a classic” states lead singer and frontman Harry Jordan of ‘Delusion Spree’. As manifestos go, they don’t come much more straight shooting. “Lyrically, we wanted to talk about issues we’ve been going through without sounding like preachy dickheads” adds guitarist and vocalist Tom O’Reilly. The result is a document of a group seizing a moment and making it entirely their own.
