Lard Vinyl.
In just over a year since their initial inception, Eye Flys have
established themselves as a force beyond reckoning. Their debut
full-length Tub of Lard is stunningly potency full of piss and vinegar,
scientific in its ability to pulverize everything in its path. Due in part
to the considerable pedigree of the band's lineup (including members
of Full of Hell, Backslider, Triac), the east coast-based quartet chew
through steel-barbed riffs and off-kilter rhythms with exponential
force. Their 2019 debut EP Context set an early precedent for just
how lean and ruthless they can be. On Tub of Lard, Eye Flys launch
that potential into 10 songs of maximum impact that find both raw
power and subtlety in their simplicity.
Written during the summer of 2019, in between U.S. tours with the
likes of Daughters and Torche, anxiety, agnosticism, distrust, and
psychedelics are all invoked to question reality both personally and
globally. The album's themes are unified by Jake Smith's search for
deeper meaning in the chaos and uncertainty of the world, happy
to demolish any opposition along the way.Though the band's
members live spread throughout the east coast, Tub of Lard took
shape collaboratively. Smith took on laying down the framework
with drummer Patrick Forrest, while guitarist Spencer Hazard added
riffs of his own, as well as layers of noise and texture that embellish
the band's penchant for reckless abandon. The gravelly muck-laden
bass lines by Kevin Bernstein, who also recorded the album at his
Developing Nations studio in Baltimore, are handily interwoven
beneath the pummel of Patrick Forrest's drums into buffets that feel
almost dizzying. Searing through the ensemble's taut rhythmic fray
is Smith's bark, deftly riding the line between infuriated skeptic and
maniacal punisher. Across Tub of Lard Eye Flys' merciless sound
coalesces through a constant push and pull that leaves every moment
thrilling: direct, hypnotic blunt-force grooves that twist and fray into
feedback and oblivion.
