Portland-based duo, Echos, has been gaining serious traction since the release of their single “Silhouettes” last month, and it’s clear why that is the case. The hypnotic, drone-like background of their sound is layered with haunting vocals and sharp beats dropping at exactly the right moment. This dramatic combination incorporates the perfect elements of light and dark for a very pleasant, yet totally unique, listening experience.
The duo’s new single, “Tomorrow,” was released two weeks ago and has been garnering a lot of attention from SoundCloud fans and music blogs alike. While keeping the character that makes “Silhouettes” so compelling, “Tomorrow” lacks the rhythmic intensity in the beats found in it’s predecessor. However, don’t think that this deficiency makes this song any less powerful. The trance-style beats serve to highlight the quiet longing expressed by the lyrics in an intoxicating way.
You can follow Echos on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. If you like “Tomorrow” or “Silhouettes,” toss them a heart on Hypem. At the rate they’re going, I can’t wait to see what they’ll come out with next.
