New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth the exclusive premiere of “Room With A View” by Echo Courts. This particular single is the self-titled track from their upcoming release, out on July 13th via Refresh Records. The track clocks in just under three minutes, with airy vocals dancing overtop shimmering guitar progressions. The main riff is memorable within its quick run, bridging the song’s other parts together. Take a listen to the track below and catch the music video finding the band members enjoying their time together in different rooms.
“‘Room with a View’ is the song that kind of brought this album together and made it one cohesive work for me, so it only made sense to make a video for it. We rented a motel room in rural North Carolina and made this video with our incredibly talented friends who I appreciate more than I can say.” – Kelly Fahey
Following the release of their debut LP, In The Garden, Echo Courts wanted to take a different approach with their next album. The 6-piece band found themselves slimming down to a 4-piece ensemble, allowing each member more freedom to explore their own style in the writing. The songs evolved over the course of a year, as the band toured throughout the region with their new line-up.
When it came time to record Room With A View, Echo Courts found themselves with a set of songs that showcase a matured, more focused sound. A retreat from the sunshine 60’s pastiche of their previous work. “Room With A View is a necessary step forward,” guitarist Kelly Fahey explains. “The album’s title says it all. The songs come from a refreshed perspective.”
Recorded and produced by Jean-Luc Swift at A Domestic Studio, mastered by Kris Hilbert at Legitimate Business, Room With A View lands on July 13, 2018 on 12” vinyl, cassette, and digitally via iTunes, Spotify, and other retailers. Echo Courts will be touring throughout the east coast this summer.
