Eaters is an ongoing collaboration between multi-instrumentalist Bob Jones, sound engineer Jonathan Schenke, and sculptor Christopher Duffy.
Their latest LP, carefully crafted over the course of two years at Doctor Wu’s in Brooklyn, marries rich pulsing electronics, driving beats, and guitar pyrotechnics. It is literal and figurative “art-rock.” An exploration of light, shadow, expansion, and transformation. It speaks to the vulnerability and resilience of the human spirit in the modern age.
Since the release of their debut in 2014, the group has performed with Shabazz Palaces, Dan Deacon, Parquet Courts, !!!, Protomartyr, Trans Am, S U R V I V E, US Girls, and at Moogfest 2014. Their work has been covered by Pitchfork, The New Yorker, Interview Magazine, The Creators Project, FADER, Impose, CLRVYNT, and a variety of other publications.
Eaters also released the ‘Moment of Inertia’ EP based on an original sound sculpture and ‘Prisms’, the soundtrack to their sound and light installation ‘Eyes Have Brightened’. Their installations have been shown at The Knockdown Center (Queens, NY), The Chrysler Museum of Art (Norfolk, VA), and Machines with Magnets (Pawtucket, RI).

“It’s as though Eaters found a hidden path in the mainframe of machine music that leads to an emotional core thought impossible in the metal cogs and live wires.” – Impose
“The textures on Eaters are beautiful: Grim and subdued but so rich you could raise tomatoes in them.” – Pitchfork
“Quirky and grinding” – The New Yorker
“The Brooklyn duo [has] lovingly brought to life an album that pays tribute to a range of stylistic ventures: warped Vocoder missives, off-the-deep-end funk explorations, and songs framed as immersive, analog synth landscapes.” – Interview Magazine
“Eaters have made an album that rewards those who listen by providing a different experience each time you put it on. Layered, complex, and varied, it pays off in different ways.” – Post Trash
