London based electro-pop group release the new single “Wallflower” from their forthcoming second album “Kinetik”
by Christopher Smith
Hot on the heels of the outstanding “You Got The Light”, London electro-pop trio EKKOES have released their new single “Wallflower” (click the image to hear it), the second taster of their forthcoming long player “Kinetik”, which is released on September 7th.
“Wallflower” is a cover of Hampshire indie group Mega City Four’s minor hit from 1993 (UK No.69) but given a very definite coating of EKKOES sparkle and class.
Formed in 2013, the group consists of Jon Beck, Dave Fawbert and Rosalee O’Connell. Their music is very definitely routed in the 1980’s but with a modern, sophisticated sound. The group’s debut album “Elekktricity” (2016) includes the singles “Fight The Feeling”, “You Just Walked Away” and their amazing cover of the late Laura Branigan’s 1984 hit “Self Control”.
In the beginning EKKOES quickly established themselves for their remixing work for artists as diverse as Lana Del Ray, Kate Bush (“This Woman’s Work”) and even George Michael (“Fastlove”). The group have built a strong following over the past couple of years supporting legendary 80’s synth-electro group Human League and the mighty Erasure on their most recent UK and European tours.
EKKOES are playing live in the UK this Autumn on the following dates. To book CLICK HERE;
