FRESH: ‘Conquer The World’ – Echo Kings

Echo Kings want to “Conquer The World”!

Boston, MA based band Echo Kings release their latest tune, “Conquer The World” and continue to ‘conquer the world’ with their brilliant, uplifting style of electro-pop. The song is their third release of 2020 from the band that originally formed in 2009 but has only recently seriously started putting out tracks. The group centres around Andy Wesby who enlists the help of Sean Cronin (guitars), Shon Gordon (bass guitar), Chris Enright (synths and bass), Marcos Valles (drums), Al Cleveland (drums) and Coran Henley (drums).

“Conquer the World” was recorded in Boston. The live drums were recorded at the Converse Rubber Tracks studio and the rest of the tune was recorded at Andy’s home studio. T
he song, like many, is written about Andy’s muse. In the style of “Head Over Heels” by Tears for Fears, the gang vocals and vintage sound aim to create a timeless feel. “Conquer the World” is a pleading message to the singer’s lover that life is better, and anything is possible, when together.

It is meant to be a personal message to that women but also a universally appealing song that is fun, yet convincing, filled with bouncy optimism. Like their previous work, “Conquer The World” has one foot in the past yet sounding very modern and current, using everything at their disposal to create a chanting chorus, which repeats its message through multi-layered synths and innocent, yet convincing vocals. Let’s hope the boys stick together now and come up with some more cracking tunes for us and hopefully an album is in the offering as well…?(!)

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
