A quick look at a band that first won our hearts with their gorgeously creative guitar work, then startled us with their powerhouse gravelly growl, then melted us again with a song named after our favourite staple food that goes well with everything. Edgarville’s debut album Fingerprints & Handwriting is available now for you to download via Bandcamp, and we think it’s awesome.
They’re a duo based in Blackburn, UK, and they fuse all the best parts of raw punk with a wonderfully nostalgic softness; one we haven’t really heard since Dashboard Confessional’s Screaming Infidelities was echoing through the halls of every university. It’s an album well worth checking out – the band are doing their own thing entirely, and it sounds great. As if that’s not enough – the album has a picture of a seal on the front, and my gosh is it cute.
