Some duos are meant to be. Like sunshine and the beach, Echo & Bloom bring their powerful, pristine sound to us in the most elegant form. This is a project that is birthed from a mastery of several skills. The result of this can be seen in the latest track, Hindsight.
The thing about hindsight is, it looks very obvious at first glance. It is essential, to make future choices as well. With a scratching vinyl opening this track, Echo & Bloom bring the sonic tides that they’re experts in fabricating. The sound is mesmerizing, deep and meaningful. The pop track flows with an ease that can’t be explained unless experienced. They choose sharp, crisp moments to add layers, while their vocal and arrangement choices are unique as well. Their sound develops from a deep sense of understanding, an underlying chemistry that changes this track from a gentle serenade to a bestirring, echoing single. Being producers, the two have made sure you hear the effects of the instrumentals and vocals in crisp detail, every time. There is a crunch to the warm notes, a sharpness to the highs that is necessary.
Young love movies like The Spectacular Now, Tallgirl and even Ice Princess are perfect for this kind of sound. Not only is the sound detailed enough to carry the moment, but the lyrics create this sense of longing and emotional back and forth. Listen to their stellar EP From the Particles that Made Us and other singles that bring the best of their music to us. It will all be worth it, in hindsight.
