It sounds like exciting things are brewing over at Echoes HQ. Rumours (yes, I spell ‘rumours’ the English way when it’s not the website’s title…it’s a long story) of label interest, new singles, and live shows. All very hush hush, to quote them, they “need to get it right”, which is the best attitude to have. Still, doesn’t leave us any less eager for new tracks.
So, to tide you over in your wait for news check this epic reMix of Kate Bush’s ‘This Woman’s Work’. There are a lot of reMixes of this tune that get it so wrong. I have heard Trance versions that just make me angry and sad. Echoes treat the song with exactly the right balance of respect and innovation. They have made it sound contemporary and relevant without butchering it, and what emerges on the other side is a beautiful, majestic slice of ElectroPop.
Echoes are playing their début live show alongside Penguin Prison and Matt & Kim on 23rd March at the Garage, London.
