EULA formed while attending music school in New Haven, Connecticut. Based around the demo recordings and fiery voice of guitarist Alyse Lamb, the group went in a loud, angular, art rock direction when she invited bassist Jeff Maleri and drummer Nathan Rose into the fold.  Following a slew of demos and three EPs, they released their debut full-length Maurice Narcisse in 2011, along with six videos to promote the album.  It was also around this time that Lamb moved to Brooklyn, New York, establishing herself as a fixture in the DIY music community.  EULA called on legendary producer Martin Bisi (Swans, Sonic Youth) to record their sophomore LP, Wool Sucking.  The album was released on Lamb’s art collective, Famous Swords, in 2015.  This time also marked a change in the band’s lineup, with the addition of Stephen Reader on drums.

some quotes:

 EULA is unhinged, rabid, and utterly charming… the atmosphere is suffocating and unsettling, but it also feels like a place you’ll want to revisit again and again, even if it’s only because on some level you like the pain.”” – Stereogum

“But just as New York is a vastly different place than it was 30 years ago, EULA put a friendly face on an aesthetic synonymous with self-loathing nihilism. They may be trudging through the same sewers as their forbears, but they’re grateful for the sunlight poking through the grates.” – Pitchfork 

“Brooklyn trio EULA explore the boundaries of post-punk to an abrasively sexy degree…from the traditional, morbid intellectualism of the godfathers of the “movement” to the noisy, dissonant, and often downright scary experimentalists associated with post-no-wavers to the transgressive playfulness of Riot Grrrl… and many of the things in-between. ” – Philthy Mag
