leather-jacketed cool” The Guardian - Tracks of the Week

“a centralized theme of controlled chaos on a sonic level” Brooklyn Vegan 

Leeds quintet Eades release new single ‘Backseat Politic’ today as the final preview for their highly anticipated debut album ‘Delusion Spree’, out digitally on March 4th and physically on May 6th via Heist or Hit (Her’s, Pizzagirl, Brad Stank).  

Talking about the process of making their thrilling debut, the band pull no punches. “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.  

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 crystalised on the debut record is at once effervescent, snarling and invigorating.   

Self-produced, and recorded live a la inspirations Parquet CourtsPixies and Velvet Underground 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. 

Utilising this approach, Eades have made some impression in their short career so far. A hefty work ethic, a prodigious ear for a tune and a fully-leaded live approach has seen the fanbase grow and grow. 

The Guardian, FADER, NME, DIY, Brooklyn Vegan and more have been swept up in the fizzing energy - and DJs at BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq), Radio 1 (Jack Saunders, Gemma Bradley) and KCRW (Travis Holocmbe) have championed on the air. 

Delusion Spree’, the debut album from Eades is out digitally on March 4th and physically May 6th via Heist or Hit and was produced by Harry Jordan and Dan Clifford-Smith - final single ‘Backseat Politic’ is out now.

Eades are Harry Jordan (Vocals and Guitar), Tom O'Reilly (Lead Guitar, vocals), Sam Wilde (Bass), Dan Clifford-Smith (Drums) and Lily Fontaine (Synths, Percussion, Vocals).
