Echotape
“Whiskey Bar”

Echotape

Today is one of those where we feel we’ve done fuck-all, but in fact we have done quite a lot indeed. What have we done today? Well….we ordered a cleaner to come and, y’know, clean at our resident stomping ground and/or the mean streets of Highgate this morning. That was good. We came to the office at the semi-respectable of 10.30am with the intention of having a chat with one James Matthews of Capitol Records fame. What about, you ask? Oh, this, that, very much the other. We spent a good 20 minutes trying to mentally recreate the conditions upon which we first met. This could have continued indefinitely as neither of us could really remember, although we mutually came up with some pretty wild theories. Clearly, we were both going through some shit at the time. Anyway, amongst our blatherings, James decided to mention a band called Echotape whom he had recently gone to see at Camden Barfly. He then decided to play us the aforementioned band. We quite liked it; having pried into the social networkings of our current Track Of The Day’ers, we’re intrigued to learn that despite their rather intimidating-to-the-degree-that-it-is-nearly-off-putting facts and figures, this is something has been relatively untouched as far as blog-world is concerned save for a handful of mentions and single reviews ranging from between earlier this year and a couple before that particular date. Which is weird. But good, at the same time. So on that, following on from previous offering We Should Feel Like We Are In Love (great name, guys. Emo, etc), we now have a rather upbeat follow up in form of Whiskey Bar. Guess these guys like their liquor. They also like their guitars and massive fuck-off singalong choruses. Pretty good. Music-wise, this draws on a plethora of undercurrents that exist in the indie-ish genres, in-between and along the lines of the following: The Vaccines doing Kings Of Leon doing Mumford & Sons nailing The Libertines. Or something like that. Just watch it.

Might as well. It’s a cool song, a cool song title, and a cool video. COOL.
