Lovely Hearts Club Presents: EULA (LHC #34)
One of the first things that folks tend to say about Brooklyn trio EULA is typically something involving ‘grrrl rock’. Which is great! BUT if you’re asking us, it’s not even relevant to say that this is one of the better girl bands around, because EULA is one of the better local/up-and-coming psych punk bands we’ve heard as of late. Period. Which is not to say that she who fronts this Brooklyn trio isn’t incredible. Not only is Alyse a super talented guitar player, but her searing vocals blaze through each track on their Maurice Narcisse LP.
Released this past May, “Maurice Narcisse” is a playful treatise on pretension, part lamenting part castigating the metaphorical ‘character’ for his egotism. Alyses’ punching lyrics find their match in aggressive drums and plunging melodies, so despite the aforementioned woes, Maurice Narcisse is an undeniably fun listen. Give a listen to the record’s titular track, a smoldering, discombobulated pop song that EULA has made their specialty. It’s indubitably technical and well-crafted, every detail fired off with conviction and purpose. Check out the video below for “Maurice Narcisse” and be sure to come see EULA at our Multiverse Playground event on Saturday, September 17th!
