Never been, but now is. It’s time to premiere a stream for you that just came in, which in turn is dead leaf echo’s debut-LP titled “Thought & Language“. Mixed by John Fryer (4AD/This Mortal Coil/NIN) and mastered by Joe Lamber (School of Seven Bells/Deer Hunter). I must admit, I haven’t been able to pay much attention to this – since I’ve been doing a lot of things lately that have been related to other acts. But since I got this just in time, I had to write something about it. Their debut is somewhere in between new wave, dream pop and shoegaze, with glittery ambiance and joyous shoegazy feelings. Surely, it’ll be the ultimate album to begin spring with, since we haven’t really gotten rid of all the snow yet. There’s a lot of summer in it too, like a seasonal outburst of emotions. Sincere, true to itself, reeking of soft-spoken but subliminal thoughts. Including a colourful palette of differentiated riffs, easy going drums and almost an symbiosis between catchy upbeat and emotional downbeat. Ready to hit it off, but staying with you, since that’s more worth their time. Stream it down below and check out their latest video for the track “Kingmaker“, above.
