Long Beach, CA post-punk/shoegaze/synth band Echolust have unveiled their new single “If I“.
Formed in 2011, Echolust consists of musicians Philip Obando, Armond Angeles and Tony Lee Jackson. Together, they recapture and reinterpret important eras of subculture essence that has musically influenced them their entire lives, through personal point of views, perspectives, experiences, gains and losses.
Armond’s basslines are reminiscent of a beloved 80′s gloomy English post punk era, cold, delayed and distant, Tony’s experimental shoegaze textures captures a wildly beautiful but contained distortion, while Philip’s guitar, synth and lyrics tell stories about a sense of personal loss, wonder and moving on.
Commenting on the track, the band said:
“Since the day that Armond Angeles moved to Germany, we took a break to figure out how we would continue as a band. After some time, we figured out a way to continue writing songs even if separated by large distances. “IF I” is a product of that solution.”
