When asked about “Perfect”, vocalist Danny Blu said: “‘Perfect’ was actually written about 5 years ago. Well, vocally, anyway. It came up again as we were looking at ideas we each had individually, because we were going back into the studio. The rest of the band loved it and we decided to actually finish it and record it! The song is, at its core, a love song. I think it explores desperation, agony, frustration, euphoria, confusion, etc.. All of the things we feel when we are in ‘love.’ It has a schizophrenic feel to it, intentionally. Definitely our signature pop-flavored/rock/electronic sound.”
Late last year, Echo Black teamed up with Revolver to premiere their debut music video for “Burn Another Day”. The track features Davey Suicide, who the band toured with last fall along withCombichrist and The Birthday Massacre. Danny asserted, “We are hungry and we are coming out with guns blazing”.
New York City-based rock/pop foursome Echo Black is comprised of members whose musical inspirations range from basement punk to Frank Sinatra, and everything in between. The boys credit their unique, catchy, pop-flavored sound to their writing process; echoing one idea off another and, bouncing components around until the song begins to speak to them. Danny Blu (vocalist) and Billy Long (drums, keys) have roots that go back as far as the high school marching band. They picked up Felix Skiver (guitar, vocals) and Rob Gnarly (bass, vocals) along the way and have been inseparable since. As if their blood-pumping music wasn’t enough, their live show is something you have to see to understand. Nothing short of an electrical storm of energy, Echo Black is not an act to be missed.
