Brooklyn-based band, Echo Bloom, has recently released their new video for “Leaving Charleston”, the first track from their latest album, Red. The second installment of their three-album series, Red has been featured on major outlets such Relix Magazine, The Deli NYC and PopWrapped, who called it “one of 2016’s must have albums.” No Depression, who premiered the video, calls the song “solid songwriting with poetic lyrics that tell the story of a young couple escaping from an abusive father in Charleston, ” and describes the video as “creatively produced in DIY fashion.”
Leaving Charleston is the first single off the new album Red by Echo Bloom (http://www.echobloom.com). We shot the video at home, and lovingly edited and produced the final version ourselves.
Formed in 2009, Echo Bloom is a four-piece band created and fronted by lead vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Kyle Evans. Originally from Florida, Evans wrote the band’s first album, Blue, with lush orchestral textures and chamber instruments, creating what he coined as “folkestral” (orchestral folk) music. The album was featured on All Voices, American Songwriter and No Depression. Gadfly praised the album calling it “an unforgettable folk album that will ultimately appeal to fans of Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, and all those in between. Incredible every track of the way.”
Following the success of their first album, Echo Bloom released Red in January 2016, the second installment of their three-album series, which they describe as “psychedelic country.” The Red album has been featured in outlets such as Relix Magazine, The Deli NYC, and Songwriting Magazine. PopWrapped calls it “one of 2016’s must-have albums.”
