'Edge Myself to the Middle' sees Dean taking on a slightly bigger role in terms of bringing musical ideas to the table. The new songs deal with cactus plants and why you shouldn't climb them, the fact that cars just keep on coming and coming and why Helicopter isn't wearing any shoes.
The Independent described the first single ‘Cactus’ as: “Joyful in its simplicity, a funk guitar line, glitching synth and 808 drums sitting under frontman Dean Rodney Jr.'s matter-of-fact, resolute vocals suffused with positivity.” Read the full review and listen to the track here.
The band launched the EP at South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas and have a busy summer of gigs lined up, visit their website for updates!
