about

‘Close to the Edge’ is a searing piece of music which shows the band continue to lean toward a revelatory heaviness over previous psych-rock offerings. The screaming intro attacks the listener from the get-go, pounding drums and a guttural grunt setting the tone for the opening line - I think we both want the same thing / but it’s so hard to be sure / with all this noise that just gets in the way / to take us further away from the point.

“’Close to the Edge’ is a commentary on a communication breakdown” states Byrne, “it’s essentially the soundtrack to a really bad argument, in particular the kind that tend to be carried out over social media. The main riff (and overall track) is intentionally a bit nasty and vulgar because it represents the uglier side of people’s personalities that tend to come out in the heat of the moment, particularly when their opinion or ego is challenged.”

lyrics

I think we both want the same thing, but its so hard to be sure
With all this noise that just gets in the way to take us further away from the point
Different opinions bring a new set of problems that I cant fully comprehend

How’d we get so close to the edge
How’d we get so close to the edge

Truths are your fictions mirror guide you, tell you just how to think next
Suitable deception or delusions, whatever helps you to forget

Opinions aren’t the same as facts, there’s no shades of grey just white and blacks
Your argument is no more fun, there nothing gained or nothing won so move on.

Tied to the weight of your problems, questions with no answers left
Am I the key to your sorrow, or is it all in your head?

Opinions aren’t the same as facts, there’s no shades of grey just white and blacks
Your argument is no more fun, there’s nothing gained or nothing won so move on.
