Take some acoustic drive, intense vocals, rich textural electronics, and lay it all down across solid bass groove and innovative drumming, and you have the music of fringe. Hardly newcomers to the scene, the band's fifth release finds them emerging from the underground scene onto Bulletboy music's roster as seasoned, stunningly talented musicians. Of their forthcoming release, for the vagabond believer, True Tunes effuses, "the moody string-augmented acoustic rock of fringe (this is a band to watch, trust me) who's vocalist sounds alarmingly like Sting."
With top ten chartings on PRR, a number-one smash on Uncle Samoo's Zoo, and bookings spanning clubs, colleges, and festivals, fringe is perfectly positioned for the kind of cross-over appeal of Sixpence and Jars of Clay.
