Edelweiss caught me off guard a little bit. As I opened their bandcamp page and clicked to play their song “Withering Heights,” I was instantly hooked. The song begins on a forceful downbeat followed by a mesmerizing guitar riff that had me nodding my head. It quickly progresses into a faster, more intense guitar bit and then into faded, lo-fi vocals. There is something about Edelweiss that is so established that it makes me wonder why I hadn’t heard of them until recently. Their vibe is punk-pop vibe with an alt-indie edge. I think we can expect a lot from the foursome from Stroudsburg, PA at Make Music Philly.
