Leeds-based quintet Eades channels the surreal angst that often haunt us at night in their new single “Vivid Dreams” Sprinkled with kaleidoscopic synths and built on razor-sharp riffs, “Vivid Dreams” channels the anxiety that creeps into our consciousness during the quietest hours and the weird sense of fake security we feel when the sun comes up. Stream below:
“This is probably the longest we spent working on a song, and one of the earliest songs written for the band. It’s been through countless version and mixes but I just didn’t want to ditch it. I knew there was something there, particularly in reference to the detailed lyrics written with a close friend of mine. It started almost drum and bass like but after a lot of jamming I think we got it somewhere we’re proud of,” explained frontman Harry Jordan. “It’s about the day after a long night when you’re scared of the outside world, and the elements feel like they’re conspiring against you. The last line is a response to the first verse, with the sun giving you a false sense of comfort. It’s about the fever dreams you have when you wake up with prickling skin.”
“Vivid Dreams” is from their upcoming debut EP Microcosmic Things, which will be out on July 10th.
