Leeds art-rock quintet Eades are comprised of Harry Jordan (lead vocals/guitar), Tom O'Reilly (lead guitar/vocals), Sam Wilde (bass), Tom Barr (synths/percussion/vocals) and Dan Clifford-Smith (drums).
New single 'Reno Pt.2' is the first release since 2022’s acclaimed debut album "Delusion Spree".
The new cut is a spirited sequel, continuing where raucous debut album opener 'Reno Pt.1' left off. The track follows a sociopathic arsonist from arrest to court case, and his eventual escape “out of the fire, out into the cold!”.
Lyricist and co-vocalist Tom O’Reilly explains the thematic origins:
"We thought it would be interesting to see where we could take the original story of Reno, trading in the chaotic setting of a crime scene, for the courtroom drama that followed. It’s a departure from what the band once was, and a taste of what’s to come."
Frontman Harry Jordan adds a little on the direct sonic links between the sister-tracks:
"We had a lot of fun tying in little riffs and themes from the original and then twisting them on their head for a new setting. If you listen carefully you can hear the guitar solo from the original buried amongst the noise in the middle jam section with some extra wonk to it."
Dan Clifford-Smith, drummer and the song’s co-producer along with Harry, highlights the influence that rigorous road-testing, largely denied to the band in the past, has had on the development of the song:
"We’ve been opening our sets with Reno Pt.2 a lot recently. It’s an instant thumper and gets a crowd going, teeing us up for a real humdinger. We have a saying for successful takes of a song that are tracked all the way through without mistakes - big boy takes. Despite tracking everyone individually this time round, this song is riddled with big boy takes giving it some natural live-esque energy."
