eades // 'vivid dreams'

new wave quintet eades have released a sharp new single ahead of their upcoming debut ep. with post-punk inspired rhythms and a catchy guitar hook in place of a traditional chorus, 'vivid dreams' takes on the feelings of discomfort and dread after a night of graphic fever dreams.

"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." says the close friend and writing partner of frontman harry jordan. "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."

"this is probably the longest we spent working on a song, and one of the earliest songs written for the band," harry jordan confides. "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."
