HËXĖ - Edge

Following the release of their debut single "Words" back in June, which garnered a handful of support from notable tastemaking music blogs such as Hillydilly, Going Solo, and PressPlayOK, London-based electronic pop duo and Olympia Records's latest signee, HËXĖ, comprised of vocalist/songwriter Lex Stowe and producer/musician Callum Raab, now return with their second offering entitled "Edge". With pulsing synths and garage inspired percussion that flows throughout, along with Lex's soulful and delicate vocals, "Edge" sees the duo take on a different perspective of heartache than the one taken on their debut.

Speaking on the track, Lex Stowe explains:

"'Edge' is about liking someone but not being ready to commit. You're standing on the edge, half of you wants to be with them but the other half just isn't ready. You're at the point where you have to decide whether to let them go or take the next step. I started writing 'Edge' way before Callum (Raab) and I had even met. At the time it had a totally different melody and the lyrics weren't placed in the same way. After Callum and I finished our first single 'Words' we decided to build something together from scratch. We started putting some beats down and the these lyrics fit perfectly. With a bit of reworking it became what it is now!".

"Edge" is available now on iTunes.
