Mystery Man

by The Echo Session

“lilting, melodic and slightly quirky, a la Kinks pop music… vocal harmonies drape themselves over the melody. It could have been written any time from about 1967 onwards, such is its attention to classic songwriting.” Backstreet Mafia

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Imagine The La’s had never released an album. Or The Kinks. Glasgow band The Echo Session are true, almost lost genius. Possessed with a natural sense of melody and an incisive intelligence, led by Tam Maher, they could and should have reached a wide audience. Through a variety of events far too detailed for an introduction, they released one single, ‘Tell Me’ in 2009, then nothing. These are some of the band’s early recordings, from around 2005. Raw, but nonetheless beautiful. A few were produced by Joe Kane, the rest are band recordings made in flats and rehearsal studios. Some are one take live recordings. In 2016/17 the first of these, ‘But I’m Scared’ and ‘Wait and See’, were released as singles gaining radio play and glowing reviews. Radio play has included a BBC Radio Scotland playlist spot, a single of the week on the Janice Forsyth show as well as BBC Radio Scotland’s Billy Sloan and Iain Anderson, Jim Gellatly on his Amazing Radio show, Camglen radio, Sunny Govan radio, The Third Class Ticket radio show & blog, When You Motor Away blog, The British Breakfast on WRIR 97.3FM and more.

The debut album, ‘Wait and See’ is out Friday 25th October 2019 on digipak cd, download and streaming. It is preceded by new single ‘Mystery Man’ out Friday 11th October.

THE ECHO SESSION reviews

“miles better than your bog-standard Lee Mavers imitators” Pure M

“We’ve been flying the flag for this new band from Scotland… Great stuff.” Billy Sloan, BBC Radio Scotland

“lilting, melodic and slightly quirky, a la Kinks pop music… vocal harmonies drape themselves over the melody. It could have been written any time from about 1967 onwards, such is its attention to classic songwriting.” Backstreet Mafia

“a robust example of retro power pop… those who remember the days when a song was more than a sequenced sample will no doubt find something to love here.” Bluesbunny

“Like a vintage wine this gets better as it ages though an immediate click of the replay button doesn’t go amiss.” Emerging Indie Bands

“GENIUS. Beck does George Formby.” The 405

“really good… a tantalising glimpse of a band who could clearly be absolutely amazing… Must hear more!” Sophie Carville, Red Hot Velvet

“Proudly upbeat with a rollocking, unabashed acoustic sound, like The Blueskins on their day off… crafted lyrics that not only resonate but bellow out with enough substance to remember them by but enough joy to want to sing back.”
Omar Soliman, Room Thirteen

“indie of the acoustic brand associated with the likes of The Coral. But it could equally be a Kinks or Beatles ditty.”
Pete Whalley, Get Ready To Rock

"wistful, '60s-shaded delights" When You Motor Away

“More than a hint of Ray Davies about the song writing and vocals… like the sharply searching poetry from the early acoustic Kinks.” Folkwords
