Jangly power pop chords, three-part vocal harmonies, and the chillest of chill vibes. It's enough to evoke the very height of summer." – Consequence of Sound
Following the release of their debut LP, In The Garden, Echo Courts wanted to take a different approach with their next album. The 6-piece band found themselves slimming down to a 4-piece ensemble, allowing each member more freedom to explore their own style in the writing. The songs evolved over the course of a year, as the band toured throughout the region with their new line-up.
When it came time to record Room With A View, Echo Courts found themselves with a set of songs that showcase a matured, more focused sound. A retreat from the sunshine 60’s pastiche of their previous work. "Room With A View is a necessary step forward," guitarist Kelly Fahey explains. "The album’s title says it all. The songs come from a refreshed perspective."
"Echo Courts skips through a grassy patch of '90s New Zealand indie pop and the umph of that 20-something moment you first heard the Zombies." - CMJ
