Weight of Matter, the band’s second full-length, is a Neil-Young & Crazy Horse guitar-inspired album, dialing in tones akin to Mercury Rev and The Walkmen while maintaining the airy psychedelia of early Flaming Lips. Whereas lead songwriters Kate Perdoni and Adam Hawkins took turns to provide drums, keys, guitars and other instrumentation on the band's first record, they were joined in their home studio by new members Alex Koshak (drums), Mitch Macura (keys) and Ryan Spradlin (bass) on new full length 'Weight of Matter', continuing an exploration of sonic landscapes while creating space for each individual member’s contribution to shine through.

First single, “Rxx,” calls to mind dozens of missed moments in rock and roll history set against a backdrop of pop hooks and mayhem, while “Bop Shoo Bop” pays homage to legendary Tropicalia ensemble Os Mutantes. Repose and the cosmos dance on point throughout the track list, providing a contemplative backdrop of harmony and keen melodies to a sometimes brusque outlook. The group borrows popular country standard “Cry,” adding a Casio backbeat and shoe gaze twist, then treads the waters of thematic love and loss on the heartbreakingly emotive title track.

Operating in the realm of the heart, Perdoni and Hawkins’ lyrics and subsequent delivery manifest the sight of creative intuition, bringing awareness of unexplored possibilities to light and letting the listener know that the journey is possible.

Eros and the Eschaton began as the experimental two-piece recording project of Kate Perdoni and Adam Hawkins in 2012, “weaving magic into shoegaze pop” (SPIN). Perdoni and Hawkins spent that year exploring the sound frontiers in the master-bedroom-turned-studio of a swampy North Carolina rental, set against an outlaw country scape of kudzu, atrocious spiders, wild mammals, and copperhead snakes, writing and recording, self-releasing two singles and touring whenever possible before catching the ears of Bar/None through a video session with Love Drunk.
