Once and Future Kings blend hook-laden, anthemic rock with a twist of dystopian lyricism. They are often said to sound like Radiohead, The Flaming Lips, Muse, Cold War Kids (and others), with nods to 60's rock. Still, there is something distinctly original about this act that tingles the tip of the tongue.
"An EP that blends uplifting crescendos with powerful lyricism..."-Andrew Rahal, WRVU
"...interwoven guitar parts, transcendental washes of delay, nontraditional pop structure at its best...tiny hints of math thrown into a mind rock mix..." -Corbie Hill, Roam, Buffalo, Roam
"...their graceful pop carriage moves in a choreographed sashay whose moody, atmospheric pulse evokes Radiohead’s dramatic air...Edison keenly channels Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne—his willowy vocals mingling with the band’s lilting, distorted psych-pop shimmer." -Chris Parker, Nashville Scene
