Echo Lake

Dream pop from Slumberland...doing really well on the college charts and reviewed yesterday for Dusted.

Echo Lake
Wild Peace

Echo Lake, a duo that grew from London, first made waves with the 2011 EP Young Silence, a disc whose title track’s muscular, distortion-blurred guitars brought comparisons to My Bloody Valentine. This new full-length, Wild Peace, eases back on the drama, blurs singer Linda Jarvis’s coos into rainbow mirages and edges into dream pop, a la Mazzy Star, The Sundays and, especially, The Cocteau Twins.


One of the best things about reviewing this record was checking back in on the Cocteau Twins and, especially, reconnecting with this Felt/Elisabeth Fraser collaboration.
