My friend Thomas hipped me to this track earlier today. It’s been on repeat since. The vibe is early 80s melodic post-punk crossed with a nice dose of ambient new wave and ennui.  Eddie The Wheel is the project of Eddie Whelan, based in Athens, GA. “Nearsayerfive” is culled from his new EP He’s A Scream.
