Delayed slightly in release from June of last year, the bakers dozen track Visions Of Symmetry is a welcome addition to the playlist. Echo Arcadia are able to deliver an intensity of sound which is lain across the listener akin to placing a warming blanket over a  guest who has drifted to sleep on an armchair.

Within the sixth of the compositions – Ghosts – there are unhurried gradually evolving themes which are played out through different instrumentation dropping in and out of earshot along with well judged shifts in pace and intensity and an emotive duality of voices, giving the song its hold over the listener in a gentle, yet comforting, embrace.

Visions Of Symmetry is available on Amazon.*

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.*
