Formed in mid-2010 in a small town south of England, five men in their early twenty’s came together with a passion for creating music. As they began writing together about their life experiences and convictions, they teamed up with a series of left-field producers to record their first demos. Some of their early recording found their way to the original bass player from UK’s post-punk band Killing Joke, legendary producer Martin “Youth” Glover. Aside from Killing Joke, Youth is best known for his production efforts with Missy Higgins, Dido, The Verve, Beth Orton, James, Crowded House and many others. Youth was impressed with what he heard in the demos and could see the potential in Echotape. He called them in for a writing session and after just a few short meetings, decided he wanted to record the band’s debut album based on his believe in the band the creativity that they had formed. The result will be heard in March next year with the release of Sky Above Quarley Hill, along with an extensive tour across the UK and dates in the U.S. and Europe.
