Local band Eros and the Eschaton are doing big things in the Colorado Springs music scene. Their brand of shoegazy indie rock has impressed fans, record label execs, and music writers around the country, and they've achieved a degree of critical and commercial success rarely seen by bands in the Pikes Peak Region.
Signed by the legendary indie label, Bar/None Records, back in 2013--before they were really a band at all--Eros and the Eschaton have released two full-length albums, Home Address For Civil War (2013) and Weight of Matter (out today), and have seen their music featured everywhere from Stereogum to commercials for the surfwear company, Billabong.
In this interview from the latest episode of Air Check, founders Kate Perdoni and Adam Hawkins preview three songs from the new record, and talk about what it's like to work with a label that has had bands like Yo La Tengo, They Might Be Giants, and Of Montreal on its roster.
Eros and the Eschaton will be throwing an album release show Friday, August 26th, at Flux Capacitor in Colorado Springs.
