Brooklyn's Dead Leaf Echo is an art collective whos debut LP "Thought and Language" dropped on Tuesday April 2. The album has clear 4AD influences as it was mixed by John Fryer (Lush, NIN, Depeche Mode) with artwork by the label's legendary designer V23's Vaughan Oliver (Pixies, Bauhaus).
Dead Leaf Echo just returned from their east coast tour with Slumberland band Lorelei and played SXSW supporting The Ocean Blue and the Warlocks. They will also be playing TOBs sold out NY show in June. Look for Dead Leaf Echo in April on the West Coast playing with Beach Fossils and the Telescopes at The Echo. They'll continue touring the West along with LA gazers Tennis System and will headline the 20th anniversary of the indie gathering Beautiful Noise festival held in the desert of Arizona, along with Captured Tracks band Half String.
Dead Leaf Echo incorporate elements of ambient, baroque, dream-pop, shoegaze, new wave, and goth, and craft every aspect of their sound and vision, with high-art as concept. Chiming guitars in twin stereo reverbs with shimmering vocals and silky basslines. Dead Leaf Echo runs the gamut of what is now possible within the contemporary underground and stands out on the NYC indie music scene.
