The Edward Furlongs is a New Jersey based endeavor in American music. The band takes a DIY approach, drawing it’s sound from popular music of the last several decades with a desire to create something new and inspiring.
Formed in 2013 by Dan Gugger and Nick Afflitto the band continues to remain a duo. As multi-instrumentalists whose abilities complement each other, the studio is their medium of choice. This process makes every song a unique experience, sometimes sounding like a completely different set of musicians from one track to the next.
Stylistically, you will hear whatever sounds good to them with little limitation. Song’s like “Hotel” and “Ready to Die” are reminiscent of roots rock and Traveling Willburys-inspired Americana with strumming guitars, mandolins and banjos. In stark contrast, songs like “Nagasaki”, with it’s vintage analog drum beat and layered synthesizers, is closer to electro pop. Regardless of this open-ended approach, there are elements of their sound that extend across all of their music that makes it unmistakably theirs. Lush vocal harmonies, thoughtful arrangements and an emphasis on simplicity are present throughout their body of work.
