Brooklyn-by-way-of-Connecticut post-punk outfit EULA is a force of nature. Incorporating shades of Wire, Bikini Kill, X-Ray Spex, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Gang of Four, and Blonde Redhead, singer/guitarist Alyse Lamb, bassist Jeff Maleri, and drummer Nate Rose make an awful lot of noise for three people as they walk the fine line between chaos and order, melody and dissonance, negative space and sensory overload for a result that's as visceral as it is catchy. On their self-released debut full-length Maurice Narcisse (2011)--and even more so in their crackling live shows--frontwoman Lamb swings wildly between animal wails, percussive chants, and delicate vocalizations that are all the more anxiety-inducing for their sweetness, as if she's teetering on the edge of violent breakdown. In advance of the release party for their new "Orderly"/"Meadows" 7" (out now on Bloodmoss Records, show details following interview), we spoke with Lamb about her classical training, her production collective, and her love of riding her bike around Bushwick.
