Echo Deer sing songs about love, drinking, death and desire. Over the last few years the band have built a strong following with their high-energy and entertaining shows in the bars and back alleys of Sydney’s inner west. With influences from Old Crow Medicine Show, Fleet Foxes and JJ Cale, Echo Deer blend folk, country, blues and bluegrass with sweet, homespun harmonies. They are regular fixtures on Sydney’s Americana scene and the festival circuit, having featured at Newtown Festival, Majors Creek and the Illawarra Folk Festival.
The band's first EP, Side A, garnered radio play on Triple J, FBi and radio stations across the country. Now they've flipped the record for their second effort, Side B, a seven-track collection of folk ballads and country bawlers with a decidedly darker tone. Side B is out in November.
