"New single Reeling by New York-based band Erostratus is a lot of things:

It’s apologetic. Grappling with a period during which when lead singer Ben Workman worked nights and his live-in girlfriend worked days, forcing them to never see one another, he addresses disparity and sorrow in a fluid-yet-mechanical endeavor.

It’s explorative – in both theme and music. Filled with edgy, complex arrangements comprised of thrumming bass, precision drumming, and fingerpicked guitars, Erostratus experiments with stories en masse, mashing together a collection of experiences and people into something cohesive and compelling.

At its epicenter, however, “Reeling” is just a little bit of a love song. It’s about the city, stitching together a series of vignettes and ideas into something entirely cohesive: a symphony of NYC’s pieces interlocked and the feeling of being enamored with – and exhausted by – the city at night."

Glide Magazine, July 2018


In the darkest part of the night
I will come find you
Under a blanket of stars
When you’re dreaming

You just don’t know
How beautiful you are

When we first walked through the door
I circled around you
Lost in a halo of stars
I’m still reeling

But you just don’t know
How far away you are

Sometimes it seems like we are
Only passing in the night
What goes on between the light

Well, I guess it’s easy to say
Just don’t worry about
All those things you can’t change

In the darkest part of the night
I couldn’t find you
Lost in a halo of stars
And I’m reeling

And I just don’t know…

Well, I guess it’s easy to say
Not to worry about
All those things you can’t change
And maybe if I keep saying I’m sorry
It just worsens the pain
But I keep trying to explain

I keep trying to explain
