West London newcomers The Echo are gearing up for the release of their new EP - stream a preview on Clash.
The Echo are a little unexpected. For one, the trio hail from West London, an area of the capital which has rather fallen off the clubbing map of late.
Then there's that sound. The group obviously take inspiration from dance music and club culture, yet re-assemble these elements into something precious, personal.
Debut EP 'Responsible' is out now, with its slow burning aesthetic winning some admiring glances. Shifting between tempos, The Echo never allow the mood to settle - it's chilled, for sure, but there's also an unsettling side to what the group accomplish.
Taken from the EP, 'Find A Way' is all twinkling electronics and gently evolving structures. Like watching the construction of a building from start to finish, it's a beautiful, engrossing listen.
