Hello Echo is a captivating indie band that takes the reigns from Boston, MA. Recently releasing their new album, Echo, the band immediately drew me in with their retro indie-radio sound that I grew up with as a teen. Their songwriting is proficient and captivating within every track on the new record. Pieces like “Growing Old and Sleeping In,” take center stage with dreamy vocals from Sean Aylward, which brings back memories of Modest Mouse, Built to Spill with a dash of The Pixies.
The 12-track record features a lot of highs, all melodically brought to life by perfect instrumentation, with Aylward’s voice itself proving to be an important instrument. This is prominent in pieces such as “Under a Spell,” and instant favorite, “A Drop Is An Ocean.” Hello Echo brings the best parts of indie’s past and brings gives them a whole new life and outlook. Slow songs such as “And We Both Know,” provides the dreamiest vocals you will ever hear, which plays off of faster tracks such as “Coffee Cups.” Hello Echo has quickly proven that they are one of the best bands to come from Boston in a long time. You can quote me on that.
