Video premiere alert – we have the extraordinary pleasure to premiere the brand new music video by our talented mate Philip Brooks exclusively before it’s official release on our website – here’s ‘I Don’t Know If I Ever Wanna Go Back Home’ for you!

Philip Brooks: “This song is me reflecting on a past relationship through nostalgia-tinted glasses. Being young and in love can be so beautiful but difficult. In the beginning everything seems perfectly fulfilling and exciting, the closeness feels liberating and so right, nothing is better than spending all your time together. But when fears and personal issues creep in, the whole thing crumbles and what once felt comforting and protecting, turns disillusioning and claustrophobic. And that sucks and is super painful to deal with, because you love them like mad, but the overwhelmingness of the emotions that come with it just makes you want to run away from it all. It took me a long time to write this song and look back on all that had happened, and I came to embrace and remember all the positive moments that were shared. With this video I wanted to depict this head-over-heels sensation, all while showcasing the fragility that comes with love. I’m so happy to have Nastasia and Andrew all the way from Russia on board who are just the sweetest, most talented couple and made this video what it is. I hope you love it as much as I do!”

Stay tuned,

PeachyKeen: That’s four boys made in West-Berlin who ventured an experiment two years ago: What can a warm, distorted guitar sound still do today against mass-compliant radio hits and monotonous bass buzzing on the dance floors? Friends became family and went from academic goals to long nights in the rehearsal room. The songs transport urban melancholy and sing of the ups and downs of being alive.

Fick As Fieves about their new single ‘See Through You’:
Ever had the moment when you finally realise after all the beating yourself up, putting yourself down, that it was actually someone around you, or your own battle within that was assuming the negative thoughts. In the epiphany moment you SEE THROUGH the lies to show the truth. Your vision becomes clearer, thoughts expand and you enter the world again more confident than ever before. SEE THROUGH YOU is over in less than 2.20, but there’s no need to rattle on when the point has been made so firmly.

Eyes and ears wide open for Gus Harvey, an experimental jazz musician, producer and bandleader originally from Deptford, London. She released her first, self-licensed EP – ♢history – last September. Since then she’s been in Berlin, creating ♧TXC.This EP is called ♧TXC. It will be released in four parts between 25.01.19 and April 2019, with the accompanying chapters of a film by cult director Glashier.
 

‘My Dad is a lyricist and Mum’s a dancer – between them they know a lot of songs and were quite competitive/huge show-offs – so my earliest musical memories are being sung/fully performed to sleep, in many different languages. Then waking up under sound desks in Soho at 4am and being dragged from venue to venue as a toddler. They taught me to read very young and memorise words, so at school I’d always be “the narrator” – the link with the audience, with loads of lines and no costume. I so badly wanted to be a princess or a star… never happened. My first experience of recording was in my friends’ attic, six of us crammed under a duvet because the boys wanted to make hiphop and my girl and I got dragged in to sing choruses. With the crews we listened to if there were any girls it was one token one, with boys pressing buttons. I never questioned that whatsoever, until Arular came out. That was the first time I saw and heard a recognisable person in a piece of work, and the person was female. It exploded everything for me, sonically, politically and it terms of what I could do – that potentially I could be a creator. But when I got to the industry in London and started being courted by labels it was shocking how hard that was to action. Nobody would listen to me about my own work. I was told to ‘pick a sound’ a.k.a. one tune I’d made that I liked most, and just make loads more exactly like it. In all the infinite possibilities in music, I was constantly told to limit myself. What they meant was pick a producer, from the people we pay. A lot of the industry would rather stick with a formula they think will work than put trust in an artist. For absolutely no good reason it’s twice as hard for girls as it is men. I was so disenchanted and just wanted to be onstage where I was comfortable – I had a 4-5 piece neo-soul band and a lot of my proudest achievements were completely under the radar with them. We didn’t make any money because of what it costs to tour that many people and big instruments, like a double bass, but we played the Camden Roundhouse and Ronnie Scott’s and Hootananny in Brixton – venues I loved – and really just toured festivals and had a good time. I think what we could do with a crowd is the most magical thing – translating that to material to release took a lot of thought and planning, as well as working out what the motivation was. For me it’s to bring about change. I’ve formatted all my EPs as a direct attack on everything I got taught. So I’d say what I’m most proud of is conquering all the fears people put in your head to make money out of you. When I think about it I’m amazed at my own balls. If I’d listened to anyone but myself there’d be nothing here, but proving all that negative stuff wrong stays with you, as strength that you can use the next time you’re faced with it. When my bandmates or the musicians I collect for my stuff tell me that what I’ve done makes them feel anything’s possible, and then actually sit down and make more music – that’s enough for me.’
– Gus Harvey

Harvey is due to return to the UK for her first headline show on 27th February, in association with Live Nation.

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” – as it’s the festive season again we’d like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year and hope that everyone we know, everyone who reads this and all the others are having a good time with people they love and admire. This year was a special one to us and it felt it just flew. We’ve been crazy busy and we know that lots of you are waiting (patiently) for some specific features  on artists we’ve met in 2018 – they will come, we promise!

Smoke and echoes was honoured to attend the The Great Escape Festival in Brighton (for the very first time this year) and we not only just fell in love with the festival itself, we also fell instantly in love with your beautiful Brighton, people of Brighton. Later on this year we went on to attend Melt! Festival, for the third time in a row, followed by the  Lollapalooza Berlin. And last but not least Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg was just the fitting end to this year’s festivals season and still is one of our favourite German festivals of all time! Beautiful venues, numerous talents, interesting panels and conferences, people we met and places we’ve visit. Not that we have a lot of time to think about it, we’re more than ready and absolutely thrilled for all the upcoming club shows  and festivals in the new year, that should get us through the cold part of the year and we’re more than grateful for the summer and an amazing 2018 that we had.

Goodbye, Au Revoir, Auf Wiedersehen. Over and out. We’re back from our 4 day trip to Hamburg’s Reeperbahn Festival. Beautiful venues, numerous talents, interesting workshops and conferences, and a passionate organisation with an eye for the details summed up the heavy hearted ending to this year’s festival season. Not that we have a lot of time to think about it, we’re more than ready and absolutely thrilled for all the upcoming club shows that should get us through the cold part of the year and we’re more than grateful for the summer that we had. Smoke and echoes was honoured to attend the Flying Vinyl Festival in London and the Immergut Festival to open the season in may. We then went on to attend Melt! Festival, followed by the Pure & Crafted in Berlin and the Lollapalooza Berlin. The Reeperbahn Festival was just the fitting end to this year’s summer season.

We would like to let you know how much we appreciate the opportunities we have been given by all of you, promoters as well as managements, agencies and artists. Thank you so much for your trust and letting us share our love and passion for music in this particular way. We never expected our concept of smoke and echoes to be such an instant success, and certainly never expected to meet so many amazing people and new friends. We are more than excited for what’s to come, our minds are full of new ideas, ready to let this beautiful experience grow.

Wir sagen GoodbyeAuf Wiedersehen und Au Revoir zur diesjährigen Festivalsaison. Hinter uns liegen 4 wunderbare Tage und Nächte im Herzen von Hamburg – der Reeperbahn. Neben imposanten Venues, zahlreichen Talenten, informativen Workshops und Konferenzen, liebevoller Aufmachung und Detailverliebtheit fand unsere Festival Saison dieses Jahr nun schweren Herzens ein Ende. Doch für uns noch lange kein Grund traurig zu sein, denn wir dürfen uns alle auf tolle Club-Shows im Herbst/Winter freuen und sind mehr als dankbar für diesen wunderbaren Festivalsommer. Für smoke and echoes durften wir neben dem Flying Vinyl Festival in London auch das Immergut Festival als Auftakt der Festivalsaison, im Mai, für euch besuchen. Weiter ging es mit dem Melt! Festival, gefolgt vom Pure & Crafted und dem Lollapalooza Berlin. Als krönender Abschluss durfte das Reeperbahn Festival natürlich nicht fehlen.

Wir hätten uns nie träumen lassen, dass unser Projekt smoke and echoes auf so viel Zustimmung stoßen würde, nie hätten wir gedacht so viele tolle Menschen und Freunde dadurch kennenzulernen und zu treffen. Wir schauen positiv in die Zukunft, unsere Köpfe sind gefüllt mit Ideen und viel Energie, die nur so darauf wartet wie ein Feuerwerk den Himmel zu verzaubern.
