Comprised of Edison (vocals), Harry (drums), Pete (bass), and Ben (guitar), the four musicians collectively form Edison Miller’s band and, as heard by their latest release “Alibis”, have a talent for writing anthemic indie/alternative-rock with subtle pop influences coming from the likes of Sam Fender, James Blake, and Bon Iver, to name a few musical inspirations.
Opening with enticing piano melodies and swiftly followed by Edison’s characterful vocals that delicately emulate indie-rock icons Catfish and the Bottlemen, the song very quickly makes an impression on the listener and invites them to listen closely to the full song. From here the band utilise volume and pacing to vary the dynamics and energy of the song, building up to the splendidly anthemic section found at the halfway point before a deft second build that then surprises the listener as the outro crescendo suddenly opts for a quieter ending with layers of vocals that enable the song to finish as strongly as it opened.
“Alibis is a tactful offering about a tumultuous relationship between two people ultimately not destined to be together. A more emotive and sensitive song than the previous releases, this wraps up the trio of singles nicely.” – Edison Miller
If this release is anything to go by, then Edison Miller have a promising future ahead of them and their anthemic style will resonate perfectly with live crowds, marking them out as a band whose live schedule should be watched closely.
