Is there honestly another band out there who suit their name better than Echo Lake? Coming after their much-acclaimed EP, Young Silence, which impressively sold out in a matter of days, ‘Another Day’ continues to show why this band are the best at revitalising purist shoegaze-y distortion in the mould of Jesus and Mary Chain and the Cocteau Twins. Yes, it is a cliche to compare new bands to them but the fact is ‘Another Day’ is like being in a blissful timewarp of swirling guitars, echoing upbeat vocals and fuzzy drumbeats. Alongisde Yuck and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Echo Lake are creating some of the best retro-rock out there. You’d be a fool not to enter that time machine.
