With latest single HisPrize not long released, the upbeat jittery indie track served as the perfect appetite whetter for Echolines‘ debut album Breathe which is released on Saturday 23rd December.

This new album marks a whole load of fresh material which feels like something of a new chapter for the band. There’s a real vibrancy to their sound here, fiery and ferocious there are still pop sensibilities calling to mind bands like New Order. With new videos and singles set to follow this album certainly feels like the next step along a path that could lead to a breakout year.

Echolines have a gift for smart indie pop, with something of a retro feel, but there’s a real passion on this record that gives it something of an edge, the album hits on moments of real power that kick it into gear, while never losing any sense of what makes a catchy melody. Where Echolines go from here seems to be very much in their hands, with 2018 set to be a year of new singles and videos, all off the back of a very strong debut album.

Echolines release Breathe on Saturday 23rd December.
