Caught In Motion, On The Edge Of A Dream

Caught In Motion, On The Edge Of A Dream

Popular bands always influence up-and-coming musicians. For every Radiohead or Coldplay, there’s a Starsailor or South to counter them — bands that make decent music but that don’t quite reach similar levels of success, for whatever reasons. Portland-based musicians Banah Graf and Sam Krulewitch, recording under the moniker Caught In Motion, seem aware of the pitfalls of relying too much on their influences. While On The Edge Of A Dream favors the piano-based songs that make up Chris Martin’s sappier songs, Graf and Krulewitch know when to rein it in and make the songs their own. From the emo-y pop of “Blood Still Beats” to the funky “Drop The Ball Now” and dreamy “Once Again,” Caught In Motion’s ability to make dramatic music without being over-the-top makes On The Edge Of A Dream a refreshing alternative to the band’s stadium-sized influences.
