Dead Leaf Echo have revealed their latest track Memory Traces which is lifted from their debut LP ‘Thought & Language’. Take a listen / download below.
‘Thoughts & Language’ was mixed 4AD producer John Fryer (Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil) which will be released on March 5th via Neon Sigh. It is a concept album that follows the conception and birth of a child and his discovery of thought and language.
They incorporate elements of ambient, baroque, dream-pop, shoegaze, new wave, and goth, and crafting every aspect of their sound and vision. As they had on previous tracks, Dead Leaf Echo still use the chiming guitars in twin stereo reverbs with shimmering vocals and silky basslines.
