Echo Bloom aka Brooklyn-based orchestral folk musician Kyle Evans takes a desperate yet ultimately sweet journey on his keys-sprinkled new single, "Leaving Charleston" (streaming below). With the warm vocal drawl of a country song and the drum-racing jubilance of a Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band track, "Leaving Charleston" engagingly sets a somewhat ominous tale of uncertain travelling lovers against sunny instrumentation, the hope of a bright future carrying the characters forward. The South-hailing Evans, whose Echo Bloom moniker derives from a term used to describe the offspring of baby boomers, doesn't just intriguingly use counterpoint with "Leaving Charleston" but crafts a simply pleasant, warm cut. While he doesn't seem to have any New York shows coming up, Kyle Evans will play at Philadelphia's Xfinity Live this Saturday (10.10) and then go on an extensive tour of Germany from late October through all of November. - Zach Weg
