‘Tomorrow’ by Echos is a celestial and sublime song that unfortunately reminds me of my first post-Coachella experience. The aching reality of a relationship coming to an end, one that’s basically become meaningless. The heavy guitar-bass chorus reinforcing that sinking feeling in the stomach when you know you “could be everything (they) want and more”. Echos sums it up perfectly – “When you’re in love, I think some people would rather be lied to than let down. Everything ends – tomorrow always comes.”

I knew I was onto something very special that very first time I stumbled onto ECHOS’ music over a year ago. The Portland duo drive that point home with new single, Silhouettes, whose dusky contour and shadowy lines make for a riveting future bass and chill trap experience. Despite its tension and tingling vigor, there’s a chilling intimacy and lack of pretension to the song’s mesmerizing vocals. Snag Echos marvelous new single on iTunes.

Portland duo ECHOS blew me away a couple weeks back with a spectacularly atmospheric cover of The Weeknd’s The Hills. Now, they’ve bowled me over yet again, this time around with a breathtaking cover of Dawn Golden’s All I Want. ECHOS is shaping up to be one exciting emerging act to watch with all these magnificent new releases! The cover is the first time the duo are both singing on the same track, and judging by the melting Oh Wonder like harmony of their graceful vocals, which glide effortlessly through goosebump raising, heart rending Eden like production, they need to do this more often! ECHOS whisks me away on the most beautiful flight through starry night skies with the cinematic alt and electronic cover. I might have to crown this the most ravishing song I’ve heard all month. Download their All I Want cover for free, here.

I can’t feel my hands after beating on my TV stand during that nail biter 19th Warriors win, but now I can’t feel my face either from how good this cover of The Weeknd’s ubiquitous hit The Hills by Portland duo ECHOS. They offer up an expansive and vastly atmospheric The Hills whose valleys and peaks burst with synthpop and future bass grandeur. The rest of ECHOS’ Soundcloud catalog is more than worth a night of obsession. Hit it up, here.

Like I’ve been saying, the production talent runs DEEP in San Francisco these days. It’s been just over a week since I shared with you Denver based, San Francisco born producer Illenium’s dope take on Odesza’s Always This Late. The remix did very well on Hype Machine, too. Already, Illenium is back with another killer track. This time, it’s a breathtaking remix of Portland act Echos’ soaring, fiery electropop anthem Don’t Let Me Go. Illenium’s remix is a grand and melodic rendition, far removed from the dark intensity and urgency of the original. Dreamy, uplifting, and dramatic, I’m again reminded of some of Adventure Club’s cinematic electronic music.
