Below is a really, beautiful introduction to a new artist, Edges.
Edges – Walk Away
The Blue Walrus “melancholic alt-folk … a personal journey through the sadness and hope of life”
When it comes to music Berlin is rather known for its pulsating and innovative electronic music scene. But it is also the place where Edges was born. The new folk/ alternative project of singer, songwriter and painter Sami Simon merges the warm and intimate vibe of folk music and its rustic images of woods and a fireplace with contemporary songwriting, expressing the fears and longings of a guy that grew up in the city. While exposing his innermost thoughts, Edges sounds melancholic but still hopeful, dreamy but still grounded and lively.
‘Walk Away’ is the first taste of the upcoming debut EP which will be released in fall 2016. It is a mix of a travelling- and a love song, dealing with the inner conflict of leaving and setting out to something new, but at the same time leaving things behind that you might not want to leave. The song starts off with an appealingly warm and folky acoustic guitar that is instantly accompanied by the dreamy and slightly dark touched voice of Sami Simon. Steady, laid back drums and crystalline pedal steel guitar lines totally hook you up with a classic country-folk flair of being on a dusty road under a wide open sky, while the chorus gives you that feeling of inner strife of saying goodbye, both intimate and painful.
