With an artist title as salacious as Edge of Desire, the up and coming act definitely set the same expectation for their sound. With their debut single “Explicit”, it’s safe to say that the Guildford, UK-based Alt Rock trio hit the nail on the head.
While there are slight reminiscences to bands such as Muse, there’s no denying that Edge of Desire carry plenty of their own distinctive appeal; for a start Matt Bellamy has never quite laid down riffs which will cut through you with the same veracity. Seriously, they resonate like searing heat. In the very same way violin strings cut through an orchestral composition the guitar cuts through the layers of raucous, and dirty concordance. There’s also plenty of mesmerism to be found within Daniel Fraser’s vocals.
