ECHO GECCO + QUINN + NOVAVIEW + HEY BROOKLYN + THE BARRATTS
Echo Gecco is a three-piece that seeks variety in their sound. Based on the foundation of alternative rock, they turn stones and stitch together myriad influences. Live shows are thought out to provide the audience with a wide range of energy. The band are keen to begin recording regularly and take the band’s ethos into the studio.
Quinn is the bittersweet and contradictory sound of alternative rock crafted from the hands of Sam Lambeth. Something of an underground figurehead, the vocalist and guitarist of the band has an unwavering ability to match up-tempo, sun-kissed tunes with more wistful, contemplative lyrics. The words make you remember, the music makes you forget.
2016 was a great year for the band when they raised £300 for Teenage Cancer Trust with their debut EP ‘Seems Fine’ which led to support slots with We Are Scientists, Evan Dando, Johnny Lloyd, Inheaven and Teleman.
Quinn’s second EP ‘Crush’ is lyrically filled with the push and pull of growing up and self-reflection. The nostalgia themes of ‘Crush’ is the soundtrack for bygone summers. The third track of the EP called ‘Amanda Knocks’ received airplay on BBC Radio 1 in June 2017.
