The Echo And The Always

Based: Cardiff
Genre: Post Punk/Indie
Website: Facebook

The Echo and The Always are Laura Hancock (Vocals), John Harman (Guitar), Dean Harris (Bass), Matt Joyce (Drums) and Angela Muir (Trumpet and Keys). They are from the very beautiful city of Cardiff and have been together as a band since 2012.

The last twelve months has seen the band gain support from BBC Radio Wales and Amazing Radio through Adam Walton and Bethan Elfyn. They have played a number of gigs throughout Cardiff and Swansea and have recently been announced on the line up for Sŵn 2013.

The band have made two tracks available, ‘Temper Tantrum’ and ‘For The Ground’. After listening to both these songs on repeat for a very long time, I strongly urge you all to do the same. The sound that The Echo and The Always create is so uplifting you will find yourself wondering why this band are not on a major label and selling thousands of records.

Temper Tantrum is seriously one of the best songs I have heard all year, it sounds like a band who have been creating anthems for a very long time, rather than a band at the start of what is sure to be an exciting journey. ‘For The Ground’ is another example of how to create a perfect pop song. The other thing that ensures this is a band that you will remember and instantly fall in love with is the irresistible vocals that will straight away jump inside your heart.

This is a band who I intend to devote a hell of a lot of time and attention to over the coming years. Feel free to join me.
