The Drums’ Jonny Pierce has defied expectations with his collaborations in the past, even teaming up with LA producer TOKiMONSTA on a phenomenal track last year. But we were still pleasantly surprised by the latest song revealed off of the Brooklyn band’s impending album Abysmal Thoughts. Mirror features Los Angeles electro rock duo Io Echo, whom we haven’t heard from in ages. Io Echo’s Ioanna Gika lends her ethereal vocals to the shimmering twirler. Mirror is signature The Drums surf rock and guitar pop, with a driving bass line and an abundance of dreamy Jonny Pierce’s sighing cooing. It leaves me ever thrilled that it’s almost Friday, and Abysmal Thoughts will soon be arriving on my doorstep. You can pre-order the album from iTunes, here.

Just over a month ago, a new London artist going by the name T.O.L.D. swept me away with his airy electronic pop debut Lucifer’s Eyes, one of my favorite new indie songs lately. He brings those same breezy, steel drums imbued qualities to new single In Low Light, which features Ionna Gika from Io Echo. It’s another weightless, euphoric gem, sure to bring out some sighs. Watch the video for Lucifer’s Eyes again below, if you somehow missed my zealous shares before.

Io Echo + Jonny Pierce (The Drums)!

September 17, 2012

Late last week, I noticed a few new Io Echo tunes floating around, but didn’t really have time to jump into the tracks. I first heard of the LA dreamy, sometimes gothy shoegaze duo last year when they opened for TV On the Radio on tour. They seemed pretty good, though I wouldn’t say they completely floored me, perhaps due to the opening band “sound quality” thing where the sound often doesn’t seem to be engineered as well pre-headliner. There was no doubt that a few of their tunes were great, but a few others seemed mediocre live that night. I kept them on my radar from then on. This morning, I realized one of the new tracks was something I shouldn’t let slip through the cracks. It’s a very decent track and it features a guest on the vocals from a band I happen to like a lot. The Drums’ lead Jonathan Pierce joins Ioanna on the vocals for Carnation. The song is catchy and lo-fi. Jonny’s voice fits perfectly. The song seems almost like a blend of both bands’ sounds. Upon repeat listen, I find myself liking the song more and more. Carnation will be on an EP out October 16.

OFFICIAL VID: Io Echo – When The Lilies Die

July 3, 2012

Los Angeles’ Io Echo are definitely a very unique duo that utilizes a very interesting blend of influences and instrumentals. I first found out about them when I caught them opening for TV On The Radio. Their songs can sound very different due to the mixed use of sounds, but there’s always a very exotic and gothy undertone to their music. When The Lilies Die is a very scuzzy, dreamy pop song off their upcoming debut album. The accompanying video is related to the upcoming debut’s album cover. That debut, Ministry of Sound, will drop on 9/11. We’re sure to hear more about them as the debut approaches.
