Eldridge Rodriguez has released their latest single, “The Strange Things That Happen to People,” off their upcoming album Atrophy. The single is now available on all streaming platforms and can be found here. Atrophy is the fifth full-length release from the band Eldridge Rodriguez.
The album demonstrates the band’s wide range, veering away from the electro-rock and poli-power pop of their last two releases, The Castrati Menace and Slightest of Treason, in favour of a slacker indie feel while still incorporating the noise pop that the band has leaned on for over a decade. The themes on the tracks are more personal this time around, focusing on love, loss and the burden of memory. Atrophy will initially be released digitally and on CD and include 12 songs, with a deluxe LP coming soon.
Like previous releases, Atrophy was recorded at Bluetone Studios in Somerville Ma which is owned and operated by David Grabowski and released on Clayton and Cameron Keiber’s Midriff Records label. The track “Scars in the Vein” features vocals from indie rock legend Thalia Zedek (Come, Live Skull, Uzi).
