A Million Miles Away (I Wish I Had A Time Machine) is the new smash single, from EDISON’S CHILDREN... the new “Supergroup” featuring Marillion/Transatlantic’s PETE TREWAVAS and ERIC BLACKWOOD.
The quirky, smoky ballad combines an understated Nick Cave like vocal and Beach Boys like harmonies with a Pink Floyd like guitar hook… which culminates in an infectiously haunting melody that you will be humming to yourself for years to come. This is the first major single to come from this dynamic and progressive duo, and is destined to become a radio hit for the ages.
This new Single/EP features 2 songs from the Edison’s Children album “In The Last Waking Moments …” (including 2 versions of “A Million Miles Away”) and “Spiraling” which guest stars one of the greatest and most respected guitarists in rock history… Marillion’s STEVE ROTHERY.
There are 4 ALL NEW EDISON’S CHILDREN SONGS on this EP… “Haunted Memories”, “Fallout (of the 5th Kind)”, “Dusk (The Rising)” and “A Moment of Zen”.
These songs have been Mixed &/Or Mastered by JOHN MITCHELL of Arena/Kino/It Bites/Frost fame.
“'A Million Miles Away (I Wish I Had a Time Machine)' is more upbeat and catchy, maybe a little in the style of Asia and It Bites. This song grows on you the more you play and the I really enjoyed the vocals throughout this song.” “'Spiraling' comes over like a mix of Hawkwind and early Genesis. It's a lovely spiraling song with gorgeous guitar playing in the Spock's Beard vein.” Nicky Baldrian, Fireworks Magazine
"Edison's Children make a dark and atmospheric album, with lots of ambient kind of references. When you hear Eric Blackwood sing A Million Miles Away, you will hear the dark and emotional power, which even has some edges of Nick Cave. Closer towards progressive rock is a song like Spiraling; combing Blackfield kind of vocals with a smooth acoustic guitar and a majestic guitar line by Steve Rothery finishes this song off as one of the highlights of the CD."
