The latest track to surface – Lighthugger, which came out a few hours ago disports of the searching mind of Dub Chieftain as analogue meets the latests electronics in a just over four minute collision of angles which, like suspended swaying crystals breaking sunlight into a spectrum of colours into the room, transfixes the mind.

It has been a couple of years since Echo Arcadia last featured. Into The Shadows, which was also the title of a three track single made available on the 6th, is of the same blood line and instantly recognisable with the atmospherics of the violin and dual vocals, though more compact and certainly marks a step development in the sound.

Echo Arcadia have been able to retain the brooding presence of the sound, whilst simultaneously introducing more complicated layering and a punchier, more forceful, presence.

Into the Shadows is available on Amazon.*

JD Allan – Lonely Boy – Audio

The Scottish alt-rock creator JD Allan released a new single on the 6th.

JD Allan - Lonely Boy

JD Allan




On reading the name of the track I was immediately reminded of the version of Lonely Boy released by the Sex Pistols back in 1979. A popular song title going back prior to Paul Anka in 1959.

When I hit play I found something new, which also sounds of a very different space to the JD Allan feature of last year. Gone and forgotten are the angry bustling reflections, to be replaced by an introspective sense of fast nights and early morning blues while contemplating breakfast alone. The reverberating guitar drifts past the ears in disconsolate furloughs whilst vocal paces up and down the room in quiet reflective commentary.
