New Band of the Day #216: The Dawdler

The Dawdler

Who: John Edgar

What: Ambient pop

Where: Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK.

Why: The one-man project of Geordie John Edgar, The Dawdler is a delicate and seductive stab at the most restrained and low-key brand of pop music. Otherworldly vocals and lyrics meld seamlessly with a echo heavy, simply plucked electric guitar. Almost hymnal in presentation, the song ‘Around Eve’ calls to mind Jeff Buckley at his most angelic. This track will serve as the opening salvo on The Dawdler’s upcoming debut album.
