Manchester's San Eco share new track 'OPM' & announces debut album.
San Eco combines the unique approach of two musicians, one with a footing in innovative electronica, the other in bombastic indie pop.
Five years in the making, their debut album ‘San Eco’ finds them drawing influences from
Fela Kuti to Slint, Nathan Fake to R.E.M, into a delicate and emotive electronic alt rock treat.
Morris Cowan (Adam Taylor) cut his teeth in the electronic music scene in the mid-noughties, and since then has released for Nottingham based Wigflex imprint and German label Zaubernuss.
He has built up notable admirers, having had his tracks championed by Mary Ann Hobbs and
Tom Ravenscroft on their BBC Radio 6 Music shows.
Tom Edney’s brand of alternative indie songwriting has also earned him a considerable following. Never shying away from ambition, his alternative rock music has him drawing inspiration from varied subjects like Victorian Gothic Monasteries on Manchester housing estates, to his Lynchian inspired dreams.
His efforts such as ‘Hands On’ and ‘The Manchester Underground EP’ have earnt him plays on many platforms as well as on BBC Radio 6 Music.
It was during the recording of Cowan’s ‘Six Degrees’ and Edney’s ‘The Manchester Underground EP’, that the two actually became aware of each other’s music - listening in through a wall between neighbouring studios. Cowan tabled an offer of a session, and five years of creativity and hard work later, they are finally ready to release their debut album ‘San Eco’, on Manchester label Beatphreak.
The album is set to turn heads on its release on 2nd August, with the self-titled first single,
'San Eco', out now. Edney’s catchy pop hook floats amidst Cowan’s ethereal soundscape production; 'San Eco' the single is a tune that hosts medicinal qualities, with the ability to make you dance. It will be released with only 200 limited edition 7 inch with an exclusive vinyl only ‘DNCN’ remix on the B-side.
Their second single, 'Pretty Curtains' (watch video above) was released in June, again very limited vinyl with an exclusive 'Jauge' remix on the flip. Each single will have an accompanying video and four more videos are set to support the album later in the year.
