New Wave hooks and a dose of existential dread describes the new single Same Guy by Leeds quintet, Eades.
The band was inspired by the clear cut sounds of Talking Heads, Velvet Underground, and Parquet Courts, and the 90s psych-reimagining ‘Same Guy’ has layers of sample-esque guitars, quasi-disco bass, and skittish rhythms.
Frontman Harry Jordan explains about the new single: “It’s essentially a coming of age tune, and the realization that eventually we’re all going to grow old, becoming either our parents or the oldies we might think are ‘uncool. It’s about accepting we are all just part of the cycle.”
Speaking too of the unusual influence that Bollywood brought to the table, he says: “The song started out with a pair of riffs Dave (Lancaster, bass) had been working on inspired by Bollywood music in an attempt to force us down a different style sonically. Making us break away from a certain writing style that had become typical for us”.
