Leeds band Eades recently came bounding out with “Former Warnings Cluster”, an effervescent display of their newly bolstered five-person lineup. Today they reveal plans for a new EP called Abstract Education, which arrives on April 30 via Heist or Hit. They’ve also shared a new single from it called “Present In The Moment”, with singer Harry Jordan saying:
“I was away on holiday with my girlfriend in Australia for 3 weeks, and by the last week I was itching to get back and write some music. When I haven’t done any music in a while I go a bit stir crazy and start getting really agitated and go off into my own little world inside my head. I wrote the lyrics just after we’d had an argument because apparently I wasn’t “present in the moment”… I hate to admit it but she was probably right. I swear I’m not normally that angsty.”
On “Present In The Moment”, Eades use their frenetic sound to brilliantly capture that feeling of frustrating restlessness, that visceral itch where you feel like there’s pent-up energy just crawling around inside your skin, and use it to power this blustering missive. With a dynamic interplay that’s reminiscent of Rolling Blackout Coastal Fever, but with the sharply playful urgency of Parquet Courts, they’re on to an absolute winner. Turns out that argument that Jordan had with his girlfriend was worth it, after all.
