Leeds rockers Eades have announced that their second EP, Abstract Education, will arrive April 30 via Heist or Hit. The announcement arrives with a new single, “Present in the Moment.”
Abstract Education will be the band’s first EP since signing with Heist or Hit earlier this year. It’s a new era for Eades as the young band work to develop a style of recording that properly reflects their sound, abandoning click tracks and opting to record to tape in order to capture a more authentic “live” feel on their latest project. Lead single “Present in the Moment” is dominated by a turbulent overlapping of fuzzy guitar takes, grounded by a cowbell beat that weaves in and out of prominence.
Lead vocalist Harry Jordan elaborated on the song’s meaning in a statement:
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.
