As a reminder of how fabulous ECHO LADIES’ 2018 debut album ‘Pink Ladies’ have become, they decided to call over their friend Robin Guthrie (formerly of Cocteau Twins) to do a celebratory remake of the single ‘Overrated’. This version has been released digitally and in double 7″.
In fact, back in June, we covered their single release of the original version of ‘Overrated’ and of course, we loved it. We’d stated then “[‘Overrated’]is in perfect pitch. What we mean is that it is the right amount of angst, within a blanket of dream clouds, over the horizon in dandelion-esque flutter in summer’s warm embrace. It’s welcoming and haunting and tragic, all at the same time. It’s meant to be. It’s certainly served that way. And for good reason.”
We’d also stated that: “The Malmo based band, like many bands we’d experienced from the Swedish city, has that x-factor that we are so fond of. The eclectic cerebral tact their musical arrangements are chill, though with a hint of trepidation and honest emotional quips. The best way to serve serious issues is sometimes through humor. And sometimes the humor in all of us, is the best reflection at the real tragic road we’d always been on.”
Now with the anniversary Robin Guthrie version, the fantastic and ethereal vocals of Matilda Bogren, along with her band mates and friends, Mattis Andersson and Joar Andersén, comes alive as it evolves into another dimension once more.
ECHO LADIES is a thoroughly enjoyable act.
Congrats gang, let’s see what 2019 will bring ya!
