Based in Halesowen, West Midlands, Ed Strong are a female fronted indie-pop band that have the power to make anyone dance. With a unique storytelling structure, indie hooks that will drive you into tomorrow, and a rhythm section that grooves with great force, it’s no surprise that you’ll end up wanting more and continue to dance once the track’s finished. Entitled “Running in Circles”, the track is the band’s last single of 2019 and they’re leaving the year in a bang. Having formed in 2017, the band have released an EP and a string of singles. Currently focusing on writing and recording new songs, the band are planning to gig far and wide with their indie sound.
Running in Circles is simply a song that gives the middle finger to those who tells musicians/artists to give up on their dreams. Fused with a positive head on it’s shoulder, the track’s arrangement may situate around a simple structure, but it’s the instrumentation that captivates. Emily Abbiss’ vocals soar into another universe and are a force to be reckoned with. A powerful single that feels relatable for anyone in the real world. Human and personal, Ed Strong are a band that feel close to home.
