Their voices form syncopated rhythms before compounding into a luscious, eerie harmony. The guitars lay beds of dreamy textures, interplaying with driving bass and flickering electronica. Their music is a mix of romantic melancholy and nocturnal angst. E for Echo are reminiscent of Bombay Bicycle Club, Warpaint, Asgeir, and War on Drugs. The band’s sound is awash with dream-pop soundscapes that delve below the surface into a darker, expansive intensity.
E for Echo originally grew from collaborations between Rose and Murphy, and in 2016 they gave themselves the next logical push, falling straight into the warm embrace of a full band. The group are now gaining a wide audience and stellar reputation for their dynamic and engaging live shows. Their upcoming studio releases are set to bring the band some well deserved attention. ‘Not Like You’ is the first single released by Sydney 5-piece E for Echo.
E for Echo are Zana Rose (vox, electric piano, synths), Jenna Murphy (vox/electric guitar), Adrian Leighton (lead guitar), James McKenna (bass guitar), and Marc Watson (beats & samples).
