The Echo Friendly

A Deli premiere: The Echo Friendly - "Surveying the Damage" - LP Release Party at Rough Trade on 12.10

The Echo Friendly's 2014 debut LP Love Panic was a rather mellow indie pop-rock record filled with timeless melodies and moody atmospheres. The duo today is releasing the long awaited sophomore LP, called Surveying The Damage, and its first single is a testament to rising above anxiety called "Power Through". In keeping with that theme, the timely title track (premiered below) navigates breaking through feelings of insecurity in a hostile world, while revealing a sound that's faster and rawer - a clue confirmed by the other single available for streaming. You can hear The Echo Friendly play both singles from the album and more during their record release show at Rough Trade on December 10th. - Will Sisskind

The Echo Friendly plays Glasslands on 11.21

We often say that for bands to last there needs to be a strong bonds between band mates, and The Echo Friendly is a peculiar example in this regard: a break up didn't prevent Jake Rabinbach (guitar, vocals) and Shannon Esper (vocals) from keeping making music together, and the result is an album that chronicles this complex relationship, where attraction, musical chemestry and relationship troubles team up to create what we can only imagine being a rather messy situation. These guys should be asked to write the soundtrack for HBO's TV series "Girls" - wait a minute, that actually happened already! Rarely music is created without struggle, and accepting this as part of the creative process is one of the secrets of creative longevity - and maybe also protracted love and/or friendship. Check out The Echo Friendly's latest single "Fuck it and Whatever" and see them live at Glasslands on 11.21.
