Bio

The Sydney 4-piece is made up of Jenna Murphy (vox/electric guitar), Zana Rose (vox, electric piano, synths), James McKenna (bass guitar), and Marc Watson (beats and samples).

E for Echo formed in 2016 in the inner-city cultural hub of Redfern, Sydney. They make dream-pop soundscapes lead by gritty guitars, 90’s synths and lush layered vocal hooks.

Over the past 4 years, the group have gained a wide audience and stellar reputation for their dynamic and engaging live shows. They have played with the Jezabels, Ngaiire, A.D.K.O.B, Letters To Lions, Death By Denim, Egoism and Andy Clockwise (US). Studios 301 recently funded the first recording for their third EP.

Their debut EP Dreamers was produced by Ross James (Chet Faker, Vera Blue) and mastered by Joe Laporta (David Bowie) while their last release was entirely self-produced at Golden Retriever Studios (How To Dress Well, The Internet) and was mastered by Nick Franklin (CLEWS).

Static AND TV follows on from SATISFIED, released in April, which was spun on triple j and premiered on FBi radio and received airplay across the US, the UK, Ireland and Canada. The music video ran exclusively via Music Feeds which later made Rolling Stone Video of the Week. The band are excited to officially announce that they will be releasing their debut album FRESH OUTTA COLLEGE this year, as they adapt to life in lockdown and realise its impact on the way they want to release music.
Praise:

"E for Echo's lush harmonies wash over you and draw you in all at once... they have been pushing their own boundaries of late"

- Rolling Stone (Satisfied)

“Oh Boy starts in a sundrenched, whimsical haze before it takes a haunting and dark turn, one that will keep you hooked until its closing moments.”

– Music Feeds

“How To Win is a dreamy pop tune filled with reverberating guitars, sparkling synth lines and dual vocals cascading through the song.”

– Tiny Mix Tapes

It's always a lush and harmonic combination when E For Echo drop a new track on us. Fans of Clews and Ali Barter will likely dig this too.
