Having been noticed by Naughty Boy and now tipped as one of the most promising vocalists in 2019, the fabulous Eckoes has just released her debut single for Absent Mind – a label leading the charge with stunning chill/electronica sounds.
She has produced the almost haunting, luscious soundscape “Cages,” which features a futuristic bassline against a powerful backdrop of electrifying vocals and soulful chord progressions. Eckoes explains the song’s theme, saying: “It’s an easy trap. You follow the breadcrumbs your parents/society/ the magazines put out for you because you get a little round of applause each time. Until you look up one day and you’re so far from where you yourself wanted to go. Standing there trapped, screaming in a glass cage of your own making, going through the very shiny motions because you should be happy, right? Right?”
