<i>“What makes “No Smoking” a good listen is how raw and unafraid the lyrics are. At times, it’s inventive and resourceful, while remaining vulnerable and relevant.”</i> – Afropunk

While Ed Balloon has never shied away from soul bearing with his streamlined and catchy music, his sophomore release, ‘Yellow 20-Somethings’, brings a more socially-focused content to the minimal sound his fans already love. In a unique space between club tracks, love songs, and pop anthems, Ed is able to find the core of a sound, shed the rest, and produce such a focused sound that it is at once huge and cosmic and also as intimate as a cuddle. It is the perfect musical forum for contemplating the ways our world’s huge issues fall right in our laps. Ed Balloon is the best friend we all wish we had; able to tell us those hard truths in a way that is a pure act of love.

<i>“With this lack of overt flashiness, the music has space to speak for itself. His lyrics feel honest, often about love, but not necessarily in an cliche broken-heart kind of way.”</i> – Passion of the Weiss
