Forest Through the Trees
Filled with driving rhythms and captivating melodies, A Forest Through The Trees is the debut release from New York City artist Dustin Edge. Succinct and to-the-point, A Forest Through The Trees presents rich layers of instrumentation within up-tempo, energetic compositions that appeal as much to hard rock aficionados as they do to devotees of indie pop and punk. Inspired by artists such as Fugazi, Uncle Tupelo, David Byrne, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Magnetic Fields, and King Crimson, Dustin Edge has built an album that becomes strangely more complex as it progresses, showcasing his affinity for odd time signatures and experimentation, all the while presenting songs that contain intensely addictive qualities. Whether heard in the car, out for a run, or sitting still in front of the speakers, A Forest Through The Trees is capable of seducing listeners with red-letter hooks, pensive lyrics, and exceptional production - a competent and intriguing debut.
