Juxtaposing dark, anxiety-ridden themes against the sounds of an indie summer classic, Leeds based Eades reveal a snappy new single ‘Forget What You Want’, and announce debut EP ‘Microcosmic Things’ – out July 10th via their own Bam Bam Records.
The light surface feels are undercut by a serious sentiment. The lyrics were written by vocalist Harry Jordan alongside a long-time close friend, who has struggled with addiction in and out of rehab over the last couple of years.
This writing partner elaborates:
“It’s about a malcontent mind, who whilst trying to sleep, without the distractions of day to day life, gets caught up in an abstract etiological search for the root of all his current problems. The chorus refers to how dark moments are often more formative than happy times: you simply experience and enjoy happy moments, whereas dark moments can linger, stew and twist you irrevocably.”
Harry speaks on this collaboration, and fills in on a few of the cultural reference points:
“I have worked with him in the past and have always found his way of writing incredibly honest and raw whilst being able to deliver the message in such a colorful way.
The song was influenced by Synecdoche, New York’s funeral poem, and a quote from Don DeLillo’s Underground. The chorus also references Cormac McCarthy’s, The Road.”
