I'm new to Echo Lake. Sure, I've seen their names plastered over many a blog over the past few years, but I'd not gotten around to pressing play on any of their offerings. That is until 2 weeks back when a favorite blog, Just Music That I Like, featured their latest track, 'Waves', and I fell for their dreamy shoegaze sound. There's a distinct Joy Formidable feeling here, and that's not a bad thing in my eyes. It's a sweeping epic, and at over 6 minutes, it doesn't over stay its welcome, in fact, I'm dismayed that it actually ended. Now that I'm utterly consumed, I'm delving into their previous works, and from what I've heard, they've honed their sound, and this just might be their finest work ever. It's a gorgeous work, and has completely captured my heart.
According to their Facebook page, Echo Lake are Thom, Linda, Pete, Kier, and Steve. Their eagerly anticipated second LP, Era, is set for a March 2nd, 2015 release date with No Pain In Pop Records. Stream 'Waves' below and fall for its charms as I did, it's my Song of the Day!
