London based progressive folk band James Edge and the Mindstep never take it easy. Their new single Four Two Four takes chamber pop to the avant-garde and back, by way of indie pop, some jazz and Radiohead-esque vocals. Why settle for one time signature? Or one style? They have constructed a song with seamless segues and abrupt short cuts, a multi-layered composition that is a showcase for the band's musicianship and their willingness to explore uncharted territories.
