The Scottish indie-gaze quartet The Echo Session will release the single But I’m Scared on the 1st of August.
The Echo Session are not ones to rush out releases -back in 2009 two singles were recorded – but only one was ever made available. Seven years later Flowers In the Dustbin dust off the live recording of But I’m Scared, which is available from their bandcamp page. Recorded at the time of the banking crisis and reflecting of living in a world of turmoil and uncertainty, seven years on the sentiment remains as perspicacious.
The fuzzy guitars drift slowly through the room and the listener is reminded of the warmth of a bye-gone era of four-track analogue recordings in a track that, which in 2009 where by then retro reminders too. Like a vintage wine this gets better as it ages though an immediate click of the replay button doesn’t go amiss.
