It was back in 2014 that the Canadian folk-rock quintet Echo Nebraska last featured with their début EP Send The Ships, it is therefore with some pleasure to return with news of their latest (and follow-up) LP Hold Up To The Fire which was released on the 1st of June.
Although Echo Nebraska have not been completely hidden away from sight, regularly playing live, the death of one of the trio of founding members Gunn Park has found they have remained away from the studio until now.
In recognition of their travails over the years and the respect with which they still hold Gunn, the song and title track – Hold Up The Fire, which is the fourth of the ten of the thirty seven’ish minutes of the melancholic folk rooted album – which is full of gems – too whom it was written in dedication, seems an apposite re-introduction and I merely hope that having broken the fast they feel able to reveal more music without the, understandable, four year gap for those of us spread more widely than able to catch them live.
Hold up to the Fire – Echo Nebraska available on iTunes.*
