An almost unexpected comeback, and therefore very appreciated. Eight years after “Dark Summer” the Sepiatone of Marta Collica and Hugo Race return with “Echoes On” to chisel languor atmospheres and to hover with levity between pop and cinematic soundscapes.
Hugo Race is a legendary Austrailian performer, songwriter and producer; a founding member of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Hugo has been releasing records since the 19802 in international collaborations with True Sprit, Fatalists, Dirtmusic, Lilium and many more..,
Marta Collica is an eclectic Italian songwriter , singer and instrumentalist, and since 2004 a key member of the John Parish band..
Together they are Sepiatone.
Inspired by the mystique of old European films (Godard, Betrolucci, Anotonini) the pair use found materials, such as retro samples, and major sevenths to create cinematic atmospheres, vintage pop and electronic exotica.
Echoes On fuses muscical genres and global timezones, bittersweet emotions, and hallucinatory moodwswings. Four years in the making, the album was made with in close collaboration with musicians from both Italy and Austrailia.
Echoes On is the last album of the Sepiatone trilogy, and the mark of a collaboration finally coming into its own. Like a beguiling encounter between Mazzy Star and Portishead, Echoes on takes the listener into a world where nostalgia is juxtaposed with modernity. Classic songwriting meets inventive production and the end result is something that resonates deep within the listener.
