"Strangelove" is the latest recording from the Melbourne outfit, being recorded mostly live at the Sound Park studios, engineered by Steven Schram, and mixed by Steven Schram and Jarrad Brown.
Musically, Strangelove traverses through strange worlds of pop music derived from the near past, taking cues from 70s and 80 Americana, as well as pushing into some newer sounds for Eagle. First single 'Give Me Time' is an evolution of Eagle and the Worm in the studio. Messing with loops, and synths, multiple bass tracks and the likes.
Blending styles into a party 8 piece band stage show- mashing pop music, 60's vocal harmonies, songs, jams, 3 piece horn section...The EATW road train has been working and evolving constantly over the last year- Collaborating with the likes of Hypnotic Brass Ensemble (Chicago), Big Freedia (New Orleans), and Milwaukee MC Juiceboxxx, producer Steven Schram; as well as taking their 8 piece band to some of the countries best festivals and clubs; Big Day Out, Meredith, Bluesfest, Falls Festival.
This October, Eagle and the Worm will be once again hitting the road, playing support to English band Gomez. They will be playing selected dates down the East Coast, starting in Coolangatta.
