Riff: Haim – “Edge”

Oct 16, 2013

The memories hold/They’re overgrown/Moments of the past have dimmed too much to bring us back

from Edge lyrics by Haim

Co-written with fellow 80s revivalist Twin Shadow, this Days Are Gone bonus track finds the trio finally waving the white flag on a crumbling relationship over another addictive blend of moody synth washes, juddering bass-lines and towering echo-laden drums which go the full Phil Collins; [LISTEN].
