PREMIERE: It’s Time For Winter: Echo Us Prepare the Solstice with a new Animated Music Video

In keeping with the recent tradition, Echo Us is releasing its 4th animated music video called “It’s Time For Winter”, on the winter solstice. The single is the first Echo Us work to see release after the three-album “Trilogy Memoriam” concluded in 2014. As the project’s founder, Ethan Matthews is also celebrating his 15th year of creating and releasing music as Echo Us.

It’s Time For Winter embraces the season with its light to dark metaphorical stanzas wrapped in quick-paced percussive bravado and guitar atmospheres. Echo Us as a musical project was conceived of during a two week commitment of it’s founder in a mental hospital 2001, and although the music has grown much brighter since that time there is also a tinge of unquiet in the new single.

“Echo Us music has grown more and more ‘content’ lyrically over the years, but certainly not less musically daring. That said, there are always two or three meanings wrapped into any piece of song material, and that is only coming from my perspective- the listener can make their own story” says Matthews.

Echo Us will soon announce release plans for its 5th full-length album in 2017. The album is an effective ‘epilogue’ to the “Trilogy Memoriam” in that it features tracks that didn’t fit within that larger work mixed with some written after the trilogy’s close. “Although the album can be called an epilogue, it is absolutely its own work” says Matthews. “It’s Time For Winter and the other tracks fit together seamlessly like the trilogy releases, but I did not know where they fit into the bigger picture at the time of their composition; it was like plucking out things from the whole that didn’t quite fit before, but they fit together perfectly as this new album”.

It’s Time For Winter comes from the Tomorrow Will Tell The Story sessions and is available as a single download via BandCamp for a limited period. Echo Us will announce entire details on the new CD album and further video material in 2017.
