Echoic – Blame – Video

It has been over two years since the English indie-rock band Echoic last featured…

…which reflects of when they last put out an EP with the recently released Shadows Of You being the follow up to Testify.

Unsurprisingly the sound has developed in the intervening years and whilst their rock background is evident in the influences of material, it is now of softer focus with a more dreamy atmosphere giving the effect of more spacious melodies which are given the room to develop within individual songs.

The first of the five tracks is Blame.

Shadows of You – EP – Echoic is available on iTunes.*
