:: A terrific first release by this talented young artist!
Eaves aka Leeds artist Joseph Lyons gained himself a dedicated following over the past year with carefully crafted demos and delicately delivered live performances which resulted in his signing to Heavenly Recordings in September. Now, the much respected label has released Eaves’ three-track debut EP As Old As The Grave and you can take a full listen here.
As Old As The Grave was released on November 10, 2o14 via Heavenly Recordings (PIAS). The EP is available as digital download and 7″ vinyl. You can buy digitally from iTunes or order your physical copy of As Old As The Grave here.
The EP is produced by Cam Blackwood (London Grammar, George) and was recorded in his London studio. In a label press release, Eaves says of the title track: “I grew up in a town where it’s pretty easy to fall into the pace of the place. A lot of hard working people finish their day with drink and lose some ambition in the process, and before they know it a year has gone by and they’ve rarely left the county. The older I get I start to realise that its not a phenomenon. And more and more I find myself trying to avoid the same trappings. It’s an ancient routine of the working class and I guess it’s pretty hard to shake off. ‘As Old As The Grave’ touches on that and my own dealings with alcoholism.”
