“Exquisitely rousing... explosive and exciting, combining the call-to-arms dynamism of WU LYF and the sort of chorus that’s just begging to be played out to thousands from festival stages.” – Crack In The Road
“Striking… life-affirming euphoria.” – Triple J (AUS)
Percussive and patently palatable, Edward R reveals debut single ‘Wolves And The Water’. It’s a slice of “life-affirming euphoria”, albeit born of the deep, dark depths of ‘Agrabah’ – the otherwise affable site of Edward R’s emotional exile, musical misadventure and apparent coming of age. Despite his nomadic tendencies, and an extended stint in ‘The Big Smoke’, such displacement transpired in the most unlikely of places – a quiet, unassuming beachside community on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
It was there that the Australian singer/songwriter honed his craft, under the moniker of Edward R. “When you're on your own you can't help but second guess yourself,” he explains. “In many ways, Edward R is a second personality – an alter ego, but also an extension of myself. It’s a shield and a sword; an excuse for me to be ridiculous, but a reason for me to be sincere.”
‘Wolves and the Water’ follows a string of local shows in Edward R’s for-now-home Melbourne, alongside Aussie up-and-comers Patrick James and Jesse Davidson.
