You might recognize Emily Dix Thomas from playing cello in The Huntress and Holder of Hands or bass in NOVA ONE. Thomas's solo project is EDT, and just released a new single, "Depths." As you might guess from her other bands, "Depths" is hardly traditional folk. It's a lovely song with swirling noise and a hypnotic riff and drums. The repetition of the riff never gets old despite going through virtually the entire song. Thomas's vocals are the highlight, as they sound like they belong in a more mainstream, traditional modern folk song. Instead, they anchor this foray into relatively experimental folk. Whatever you do, don't let EDT slip below your radar.
You can listen to "Depths" below. it was a wave, of course is due out August 5 on Pretty Purgatory and can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp. For more on EDT, check out the artist's website.
