EP Review: Pre-Columbians EP

Title:  Pre-Columbians EP (BandCamp, iTunes)
Artist:  Edelweiss (BandCamp, Facebook, Twitter, PureVolume)

Edelweiss is a synth-pop group in the vein of New Order.  Hailing from Stroudsburg, PA these kids (literally; the oldest member of the band is 17) have put together a strong debut in the Pew-Columbians EP.  From start to finish, Pre-Columbians is synth-pop excellence that could have easily been produced during the genre’s heyday in the early ‘80s.  The five-song EP is tight, well produced, and does a great job at introducing this band to the world.  Standout moments include “A Sound From Pennsylvania” and “(No).”  Great for fans of New Order, Depeche Mode, The Killers, and Joy Division.
