Leeds quintet EADES is comprised of Harry Jordan (vocals/ guitar),Tom O'Reilly (lead guitar/ vocals), Sam Wilde (bass), Dan Clifford-Smith (drums) and Lily Fontaine (synths/percussion/vocals).
So far they have been championed by the likes of The Guardian, FADER, NME, DIY, Brooklyn Vegan got radioplay from BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq), Radio 1 (Jack Saunders, Gemma Bradley) and KCRW (Travis Holocmbe).
New single 'Delusion Spree' will be the title-track for their highly anticipated Debut Album and they just announced a UK headline tour in April to support the release.
They faced the daunting task of writing, recording and mixing a debut album from scratch:
“'Delusion Spree' was a very special song for the band when writing the album. Finishing the song felt like a turning point when we finally knew how we wanted the album to sound, and the direction we were headed in lyrically and sonically. It kind of opened the floodgates for the rest of the tunes!
Thematically it summed up the disillusionment and confusion we all felt in our early twenties, trying to build a life for ourselves whilst the world around us seemed to be falling apart. Two years on I think we all feel quite differently towards the world and we’ve learnt to be a lot more positive as our hard work over the last couple years has started to pay off. Although at the time I think it’s safe to say we were all feeling pretty lost.”
