Premiere: Only Echoes Remain – ‘Aurora’

A dense, complex piece of music...

Everything about Only Echoes Remain appears carefully thought through.

Dense layers of noise are combined with intricate instrumental passages, falling somewhere between the glacial post-rock of Sigur Ros and Karnivool style prog.

New album 'The Exigent' is incoming, with the band crafting the material into a complex block of sound.

Clash is able to premiere new cut 'Aurora', and seemingly it was the last song written for the release. Only Echoes Remain explain:

"During songwriting, 'Aurora' came together extremely quickly – basically over the course of one jam session; Si had this picked arpeggio, which is how the track now opens, and I started messing around with the root progression and different chord combinations – and then when Craig introduced the 6-4-6 pattern at the end then the whole thing came together very quickly after that."

"Much of the album tracks came from my own older demos, but 'Aurora' was the first song we all wrote together, and as a result I think it's probably the song we're most proud of to date."

Check it out now.

'The Exigent' will be released on June 16th.
