In the Wire
Like a cross of the quirky edged art guitar thrust of Pavement, Television, or Wire with the brooding dark melodic intensity of Bowie or The Cure, Echo Revolution presents pop at it's very best...going up into the clouds and taking a trip around, vocals swooping in from one side, cymbals washing, and then gears changing. Comprised of Lee Harding (vocals, guitar), Robin Eisenberg (keyboards, backing vocals), Andy Villas-Boas (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Nate Schaedler (drums), Echo Revolution has been playing throughout San Diego and Los Angeles, California since late 2002 at venues such as the Belly Up Tavern, the Casbah, Ken Club, Blind Melons, and Cat Club on Sunset. Echo Revolution released their debut CD, titled 'Aura', in 2003. Described as 'capturing the spirit and channeling the vibe of early U2' (Splendid Magazine), 'Aura' sold nearly 1,000 copies through an aggressive radio and local touring campaign. Two years in the making, 'In the Wire' was recorded in San Diego, California from 2003 to 2004 by Alan Sanderson (Weezer, Rolling Stones) and Mike Kamoo (the Stereotypes, Silver Sunshine), and mastered at Gateway Mastering Studios by Adam Ayan (Dave Mathews Band, Pearl Jam, REM). 'In the Wire' presents eight original songs plus a rendition of Lou Reed's 'Satellite of Love'. Since it's release in June 2005, 'In the Wire' has been signed to Bunim-Murray Productions for use on MTV and received airplay on local college and commercial radio.
