Die erste Vorladung (XVIII)
Civil War opens with “20 Different Days”. The faint sound of a baby crying is interrupted by a roaring guitar figure. Kate’s singing is soft, drenched in echo. Overlapping keyboards and maddened guitars eventually twist the song into a tangled mess. While “Carry the Water” features Adam’s lead vocals, his wife’s voice is still prominent. Their voices blend well together. The couple seems to have a knack for reining in the noise around them and weaving it into a cohesive melody.
Adam and Kate don’t hide their obsession with the counter-culture. They named their band after a lecture by American psychonaut Terence McKenna. Their song, “Terence McKenna”, creates a hazy noise worthy of the icon’s mind-expanding legacy.
Of all the musical styles currently trending, “nu gaze” is one of the most interesting. Young bands are taking their music farther and getting weirder. The results are transfixing. On Home Address for Civil War, Eros and the Eschaton prove to be one of the most exciting and progressive forgoers in this new revolution in sound.
For a taste of what the duo’s collaborative efforts can yield (aside from a human being), they’ve released lead single “Heaven Inside”. Despite only being two people, the lovebirds deliver a vibrant outpouring of shoegaze, taking the ceaseless drive of drums and layering on to it boy-girl harmonies and hazy guitar effects. But even amid that chaos, the vocal interplay betweenn Perdoni and Hawkins really draws the ear, an alluring mixture of their voices that sounds as much as they are singing at an audience as they are serenading one another.
