Hailing from Sydney’s Inner West, Village Echoes formed in 2013 and are a multi influenced, energetic indie rock trio creating music that is certain to appeal to fans of Bloc Party, Jimmy Eat World and Biffy Clyro.
Just 3 months after the bands formation Village Echoes quickly threw together their debut EP ‘Evolve’ prior to a single onstage performance. This record would encapsulate the wide array of influences from all 3 members, from punk, grunge, to modern indie. ‘Evolve’ epitomized the bands desire for diversity, fun and drive not to become one dimensional. With the foundations strongly set the remainder of the year saw the band travel throughout NSW with their energetic live show.
“their music was impressively focused and confident, with tinges of Nirvana in places” – Alex Needham - The Guardian.
Singles ‘Another Thought’, received airplay on community radio stations nationwide as well as Triple J’s Unearthed Radio, while their video for ‘The Bike’ featured on ABC’s RAGE TV as well as notching up 50,000+ views online.
Early 2014 and work began on their new material. The trio found sanctuary in a secluded farmhouse in rural New South Wales, far from the distractions of city life. A new approach, new surroundings and a different writing method would be the reasoning for such escape. This time away would birth what would be the bands follow up tracks to ‘Evolve’.
Mixed by Simon Todkill (The Griswolds, Matt Corby), and Mastered by 2x Grammy Nominee Joe LaPorta (Foo Fighters, The Killers), Village Echoes return with the infectiously catchy new single ‘You Are Mine’.
