San Eco combines the unique approach of two musicians, one with a footing in innovative electronica, the other in bombastic indie pop.
The duo’s self-titled first single, ‘San Eco’, perfectly blends Edney’s catchy pop hook floats amidst Cowan’s ethereal soundscape production.
Limited to 200 copies worldwide, the 7 inch comes with an exclusive vinyl only ‘DNCN’ remix on the B-side – an understated 2-step flavoured deep house foot jerker that should appeal to fans of Rhythm Section International, Banoffee Pies, Pacific Rhythm and Mood Hut.
With influences from Fela Kuti to Slint, Nathan Fake to R.E.M, this is the first release to be taken from their debut album ‘San Eco’, which promises to be a delicate and emotive electronic alt rock treat. The LP is due for release on Manchester based label Beatphreak in June 2017.
Morris Cowan (Adam Taylor) cut his teeth in the electronic music scene in the mid-noughties, and since then has released for Nottingham based Wigflex imprint and German label Zaubernuss. He has built up notable admirers, having had his tracks championed by Mary Ann Hobbs and Tom Ravenscroft on their BBC Radio 6 Music shows.
Tom Edney’s brand of alternative indie songwriting has also earned him a considerable following. Never shying away from ambition, his alternative rock music has him drawing inspiration from varied subjects like Victorian Gothic Monasteries on Manchester housing estates, to his Lynchian inspired dreams. His efforts such as ‘Hands On’ and ‘The Manchester Underground EP’ have earnt him plays on many platforms as well as on BBC Radio 6 Music. Full tracks in the player.
