Single Review: Edens Edge – Too Good To Be True

With “Too Good To Be True,” Edens Edge looks to break out with this single after becoming a new name to watch through 2011′s lead single “Amen.” Read on to see what we think of the talented trio’s chances of success with the single.

Featuring a vibe-y, almost haunting melody to the proceedings, the song finds the trio of multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Dean Berner (those Dobro licks in this tune are his), mandolin/vocalist Cherrill Green and lead singer Hannah Blaylock, singing a song about a guy who who will say anything possible to get the girl to sleep with him or do whatever it is that he wants to do. It serves as a cautionary tale that’s theme isn’t dissimilar from themes from other songs. But while familiar in theme, the band’s sound’s the kind that has sort of been missing from country radio.  This is a traditional country-based band with a bit of folks-y, Dixie Chicks like attitude and harmonies added for good measure. 

If this single isn’t a hit for Edens Edge, I think I may need to switch careers for it’s that strong of a  single.

Look for our interview with the band to appear on Roughstock soon.
