Video of the Moment #1405: Edit/Select

It helps that I have an elephantine memory. This works in your favour if you’re in a band, you’ve sent us music and I’ve liked it. Because I will remember. Case in point: in October 2011, I got an email tipping me off about an unsigned London band called Edit/Select. Dutifully, I headed to their Facebook to have a listen to them. Even then, I was impressed enough to like their page and bookmark it to keep an eye on their ongoing professional progress.

Two years later, I’m pleased to announce they’ve self-released their debut EP, ‘Lungs’, which you can purchase from their Bandcamp. And here is the video for the title track. The band have told me they’ve been compared to U2, and I can totally see that with this song: with a guitar intro sounding like the Edge’s in ‘Where the Streets Have No Name’ and sweeping vocals so grand (but sounding way better than Bono), I will bet they will be coming through as a singalong to a festival near you next summer. Keep an eye on this band, as I hope they’ll be snapped up by a label any day now. Watch the part performance, part soap promo video for ‘Lungs’ below.
