[Audio] Ekkoes’ ‘Last Breath’

 

Ekkoes

This weekend sees the release of the eagerly awaited new single from UK ElectroPop heroes Ekkoes. Following the début proper release, the single Fight The Feeling, Last Breath feels like an escalation of activity from Ekkoes. It would be a long time coming; and if it receives a similar kind of attention and radio play as Fight The Feeling, well deserved too. It’s about time Ekkoes burst out into the public consciousness.

Last Breath shows off that particular brand of Ekkoes epicness. A rich, emotional track with a driving tempo, Last Breath blends waves of lush synths with shimmering guitars to provide an unashamedly euphoric soundtrack for Jon’s passionate delivery. Which is odd, as it’s quite a melancholy track, but that’s the way of the best ElectroPop, musically blending the moody and the optimistic, and Ekkoes hold on to that vibe here perfectly. With nods to mid-80’s SynthPop, 90’s Shoegazey Indie and one foot on the dancefloor, Last Breath has the total package.
