In a world where we’ve been conditioned by radio to expect songs to last 2-3 minutes, folk rockers Edwin have delivered some of the most enjoyable 6 minutes and 42 seconds of sonic stimulation and dreamy escapism I have heard in a long time.
It’s extremely easy to get lost in their single I’ve Only Gone from the moment you click play.
Hauntingly cosmic layers lead us into a soothing acoustic guitar and simple groove which spends the next 6 minutes weaving, building and guiding us through a relaxing, reverberated atmosphere which you can feel yourself floating through. Just turn it up, close your eyes and let it carry all your stress from the day away.
I’ve spend the last 24 minutes listening to the song on repeat. I’ll probably listen one more time; I love this deliciously smooth jam.
