Echodrone – “The Past or the Present”


San Francisco-based shoegaze/dreampop act Echodrone formed in 2005 and have been churning out high-quality tunes since, a trend that continues on their sixth full-length release, Past, Preset and Future. As the album’s self-titled track shows, the band embraces heavy guitar textures with warm reverb, within a dreamy soundscape and distant vocals reminiscent of Canadian act Stars. Eugene Suh’s remain an integral part though, his serene nonchalance adding nicely to the mix. The quartet do well in meshing shoegaze and dream-pop with a warmly layered assortment of sounds. The album, just released this week, can be streamed in full below:
