The Edward Furlongs – “Nagasaki”

edward furlongs music

The Edward Furlongs are a duo from New Jersey with a particularly sharp sound. Their brisk new trackĀ “Nagasaki” touts some Beirut-like brass flourishes over anthemic vocals and playful guitar schematics; the hybrid of guitars, synths, and brass just prior to the two-minute mark shows the sound’s potential, as does the psych-friendly vocal bleed shortly after. The “did I mean what I said” chorus resembles reggae slightly in the tropical guitar trickles and free-flowing vocal delivery, injecting yet another favorable stylistic fusion into The Edward Furlongs’ promising sound.

  1. I just found your blog today I’m finding so much great music on here! thanks! I like how “nagaski” can have all these different layers of vocals and brass happening at once but it all serves the song.
