Out of Manchester we find the charming synthpop of Edits, comprised of Liv Westhead (Vocals/Synths) and Chris Abbott (Guitars/Programming). Edits take pride in their D.I.Y. aesthetic; producing everything they make themselves, even their music videos. It's easy to tell there is a methodical care put into their work.
The duo have recently released their latest single, “Cold,” but don't let the name fool you. A punchy beat and warm synth open the track, a blanket of ethereal atmospherics leading to the entrance of Westhead's vocals. She exhibits commendable control as she slides into her falsetto, singing "icy rivers running through my veins." Abbot's guitars blow open the second half of the song alongside the increased intensity of Westhead's haunting wails. Edits' sound makes me imagine a coalescence of The XX and Lacuna Coil, sparking electropop with a dark underbelly.
Keep up with Edits
