Echoes in Smoke are a Barcelona based alternative indie trio merging groovy psychedelia with electronic soundscapes, surfing into the dystopia with touches of post-punk as a wake-up call.
Formed by musicians from Sweden, UK, and Chile; expect a mix of playful melodies with a dark twist on lyrics, surf guitars, pulsating bass lines, and tribal drumming. Their imagery ranges from landscapes, dreams of pirates & heroines to artificial intelligence.
They have a mountain of new material in the making and 2023 is set to be a busy year, with a new album on the way their UK debut – Rough Trade record Nottingham and Noisily Festival, playing alongside Space Rock legends GONG!
One of their aims is to inject a sense of counter-culture back into the music and art scene of Barcelona. Inspired by community living and creative collectives on the outskirts of the city, they have already created a buzz within certain circles with their self hosted gatherings and energetic danceable live sets in unusual venues – including an outdoor annual community gathering in the mountains and a 17th century furniture warehouse.
They have recently become regulars at Barcelona’s renowned Sala Upload, the home of Barcelona Psych Fest and have shared stage with numerous local and international bands such as Death Valley Girls, Valentina & The Electric Post, among others.
2022 saw the release of a completely improvised studio album – The Tower. This was shortly followed by an independent single / video release complete with two remixes.
In 2020 the band released their debut EP Paint the Void, alongside videos for two of the tracks and a live performance filmed live in lockdown.
They are currently working on the songs for their next album and are very excited to play this new material at their upcoming gigs.
