The Edwards – “Wicker Park Towing Specialist”


“Wicker Park Towing Specialist” is a gripping new track The Edwards, a five-piece from Chicago. Captivating early with a confident sound reminiscent of Deerhunter, the effort features a slew of catching twists throughout. The mid-point features a seductive saxophone accompaniment and entrancing, dark guitar tones, setting up an especially energetic and guitar-focused second half. “Wicker Park Towing Specialist” is a blast to listen from start to finish; The Edwards show an exciting, varied rock sound with both mood and melodic infection.

The track was mixed and mastered by Dave Vettraino (Dehd, Lala Lala, Deeper). Graham Holthaus (In The Pines) plays saxophone.

“Wicker Park Towing Specialist” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2021’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
