The five-piece New Orleans band ZamaPara utterly hypnotizes in "Edge of the World"--a breathy, ethereal ballad incorporating guitar, percussion, and cello, among other lovely instruments. The song maintains a subdued volume while still moving through moments of power and ferocity, aided by the orchestral feeling of the music. The lead singer's voice reminds me of Marcus Mumford, with touches of Dave Matthews or Alexi Murdoch. His poetry matches the composition elegantly, singing with an existential, almost Shakespearian contemplation of his life, his world, and his relationships in it. It's possible that the narrator is contemplating suicide, or simply an escape from his everyday life...Frost's "Stopping By Woods On a Snowy Evening" comes vaguely to mind. The song, though, is sung to a lover or friend, and seems to be both reassuring her, and also, asking for help.

"Edge of the World" is reminiscent of well-known artists such as

Mumford & Sons
