The Stoffs’ “EDT” is a nostalgic celebration

What “EDT” stands for is anyone’s guess, but this song is seriously fun. Written specifically about those childhood memories you’ll always cherish, “EDT” can apply to the good ole days from any stage of life- whether its time with old friends, family who’ve passed, or experiences that could’ve lasted just a little bit longer. However, that’s not to say that The Stoffs are dwelling on the past. No, no- they’re looking back with joy, carrying their message with fun upbeat indie rock that fills you with infectious delight as you reminisce. The chord progressions are timeless, the mix is just right, and a fuzzy guitar solo straight out of the 90’s is the perfect closer for this ode to yesteryear.


“E.D.T. is a song about missing my father, specifically the childlike relationship you can have with a father when you’re young. Now that I’m older and a father myself, it’s impossible to re-capture that spirit Fortunately, I’ll have the great memories forever.”


The Stoffs is the indie rock project of Indianapolis-based musician Eric Stoff. Eric and his wife Brooke had a turbulent year in 2017. They welcomed their first daughter into the world, experienced unprecedented success in their business, and Eric achieved a life goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon. From an outside perspective, it was the best year of their lives. But the Stoffs also experienced financial stress, strained relationships, and the unique weight of caring for a newborn child. Eric spent the entirety of 2018 writing, recording, and meticulously crafting “Little Flock” in his home. He said it was healing for him as he worked his way through postpartum depression, and it helped him make sense of chaotic previous year. Released on New Year’s Day 2019, “Little Flock,” details a universal tug-of-war between desperation and hope.
