SPC ECO- Fallen Stars
The second single off of SPC ECO‘s new album ‘Sirens and Satellites’, Fallen Stars, is a haunting, trippy song that makes me want to sit outside in the sun and listen to this on repeat. Rose Berlin’s enchanting voice transcends you to a place where you can forget about all your troubles and just focus on the music. It makes you feel happy and almost just makes you want to sigh. Based on this song alone I would run to my local record store and buy this album in a heartbeat.
My first thought was that this was reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine meets Lush. Kind of a more trippy 90’s feel. Somewhat industrial, somewhat goth, somewhat electronic, but all great. In fact, Rose Berlin’s voice reminds me a bit of Meriel Barham from Lush.
Sirens and Satellites is due out for digital release through Kaboom Music on October 21st and they are expecting a full physical release by the end of this year. Check them out Towelites, I think you’ll really dig it.
With their new album poised for release next month, SPC ECO are releasing the second track from it – the heavily layered, atmospheric Fallen Stars.
SPC ECO are Rose Berlin (vox and words) and Dean Garcia (bass, drums, guitars, studio engineer and producer, and best known for being one half of seminal 90s band Curve). Having recently completed a BA Sculpture (with first class honours!) Rose is now concentrating her efforts on her music, together as always with her multi-instrumentalist and maverick producer father, Dean. Rose and Dean have been writing and recording songs from as soon as Rose was able to make a sound. The chemistry between them is undeniable.
SPC ECO have produced and recorded a succession of albums and EPs since 2008 all of which are listed on BandCamp . Their last release, Push EP, was picked up by the likes of Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music (UK), WZBC (Boston), Amazing Radio (UK), WRIR (Virginia) and was championed by BBC London’s Gary Crowley. It was also widely praised online by influential sites and blogs such as Drowned In Sound, Black Book Magazine, God Is In The TV, Wave Maker Magazine, Breaking More Waves, The VPME and Right Chord Music (plus many more!).
Fallen Stars is the second track to see the light of day from the album, Sirens and Satellites (Due for digital release through Kaboom Music on 21 October with a full physical release pencilled in for the end of the year). Fallen Stars is backed by a number of remixes, including one by Alan Moulder – producer of the likes of My Bloody Valentine, The Smashing Pumpkins and Richard Hawley. The album is definitely an eclectic affair, and is reflected well in the epic style of Fallen Stars when compared to the dark synth-pop of the last single Delusional Waste.
