It’s July, 2012. We just shared ambient dream-pop duo Love Echo’s rework of “Lovecats.” Do you remember? We only had good things to say. Things like, it’s “the sound of cashmere” and “it smells like cheesecake.” Sounds warm and delicious, right? It is. Electro-pop infused with shoegaze? You know you want some of that.
Love Echo is vocalist Vicki Glass and producer Vic Miranda, a post-chillwave duo who create sensual lullabies. Back in July ’12, the two only had a few tracks under their belt. Now they’ll be releasing a new, debut album – I Promise You Always the Sky - later this month. While it’s been a while since those first releases, we still have good things to say. We’re feeling the goosebumps. Love Echo’s just that chill.
Listening to their music is like looking at life with a Gaussian blur, a bit seductive and charmingly dreamy. It’s moody glo-fi that inspires relaxed memories, like laying out in the grass on a breezy spring day. Something between oOoOO, Clams Casino, and Washed Out. This track “Hush” is one of my favorites, but I’m also really into Daybreak. Fuck it. You know what? It’s all good. Listen to the whole thing. Chill out.
They’re hoping to go on tour in the immediate feature, and are still making tracks in the meantime. Their album drops January 28, 2013, but until then, you can listen to tracks on their SoundCloud. Order the CD or vinyl through their label, LebenStrasse.
