Have you been searching for a good solid rock n’ roll band, but get dissuaded when you hear the usual crap coming out of your radio? Have you tried in vain to hear something on a rock station that you haven’t heard a hundred thousand times already? Have you realized that it’s about time that true rock, in its grittiest form, is about due to reemerge from behind a dumpster somewhere?
If the answer is yes, then I bring you Edge Effect. From out of the dusty plains and desolate streets of north Texas, Edge Effect is a four-piece dirty rock band that takes their audience through a sonic romp of shabby conditions and hopeless relations. They speak of love and loss, downfall and redemption, broke and not as broke. They call to mind the familiar sounds of the Toadies and Bruce Springsteen, but in updated and modern English. They span the sheer spectrum of rock n’ roll in all of its marvelous simplicity. Edge Effect lives in the spirit of those who remember when their rock wasn’t bland and watered down. When bands sang to you, yes YOU, as an individual. When rock shows were fun and exciting.
Forming in 2011, DK Jarvis, former frontman for Grain, pushed for a different sound from his previous efforts. Merging the classic rock he grew up listening to with his love affair of punk, he founded a band that is both refreshingly new, yet instantly recognizable. Two months after forming, they released a four song EP, the dubiously titled “Dirty Rock EP”. With tales of substandard living, one night stands, and the beautiful insanity that comes with living such a lifestyle, the “Dirty Rock EP” and they’re almost religious concert performances, Edge Effect aims to bring back the showmanship of rock n’ roll. When seeing a band was an event.
