Artist: Man & The Echo
Album name: Man & The Echo
Release Date: 18 Nov 16
Label: 1965 Records
The album is a soulful, poetic, eleven-track statement from a band clearing their own space amidst a cluttered musical landscape.
The album skirts numerous musical signposts, spanning the likes of The Smiths, Dexys, Pulp, 50/60s crooning, blue eyed soul and much more, arriving at a sound that isn’t retro as much as ricocheting through pop’s many decades and landing squarely in the post-Brexit, conflicted, chaotic UK of the here and now.
