New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
"The song? It's about the one who was worth it all; all the wait, all the heartbreaks, all the darkness. The one who finds you when you didn't think it would happen when you'd given up, they breathe new life into you. And they seem to be created just for you, made from a mould of your body - the other half. The love that surprises even this most skeptical girl and opens up a world of such bliss she hadn't dared to dream it. He is both wonder and certainty."
About 'NOBODY ELSE'
Evoking the whirlwind dichotomies of love, ECKOES' new song 'Nobody Else' could well be the finest four musical minutes she's captured on recording yet. Cushioned in rich ambient synth textures, her tender vocal relates a story of human vulnerability and the validation we find in love. 'Nobody Else' charts the journey from heartache to happiness, from the depths of loneliness to affirmation in the arms of the one who helps us find ourselves when we're certain that we're lost. It's ECKOES' after-midnight ballad, conveying intimacy and expansiveness in the fabric of its hypnotic instrumentation. On 'Nobody Else' ECKOES doesn't just reveal her consistency as an artist, writer and singer, she lays herself bare to her ever-growing audience.
British musician ECKOES is both a sharp-sighted futurist and a nostalgic sentimentalist. In her music and her listening habits (she's an avowed fan of both James Blake
and Maxwell) she merges cutting-edge textures, intimate sensual sounds, and soulful pop hooks into her sublime and unmistakeable sonic world. A prolific songwriter outside of her solo project, she's penned tracks for Tara Sutaria (The Disney Channel) and co-written and performed on releases with Danny
Darko, Space Jump Salute and Le Visiteur. As a writer and singer ECKOES constantly tests the water, fusing styles she likes with effortless grace. By turns alternative R&B, swelling soul, urban electronica, and ambient, ECKOES' project finds itself in the hinterlands of pop. Like FKA Twigs, ECKOES isn't beholden to reliving the past by simply repackaging it. Atop her distinctive sound are her vocals, unique, inimitable. Inside those vocals, she pours her feelings and her experiences. ECKOES is one of the most intriguing and emotive new outpourings to emerge from the London circuit and tastemakers' praise has come in quick from Clash, Wonderland, Indie Shuffle, Afropunk, the MOBO awards and Q. On the airwaves she's received support from Tom Robinson at BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, and Amazing Radio, setting the stage nicely for the release of her debut EP next year. At the helm of her project she stands, a six-foot weaver of hypnotic sounds ever refining her craft. On the one hand familiar, relatable, on the other, a statuesque artist with an aura that's all her own.
