Echo Ladies - Nadine Khouri - Ashley Elle - Sunny Luwe

Echo Ladies - Awake. Malmö, Sweden shoegaze/dreampop trio Echo Ladies are pleased to announce they have signed to Rama Lama Records/Gazehop Records and will release their second album Lillies on 8th September 2023. To celebrate the news, the band are streaming new single ‘Awake’ which was released on 1st June 2023. Commenting on the track, the band say: “‘Awake’ is a song about the feeling of drifting apart from each other in a relationship. The feeling of being left behind and forgotten and how small of a person that makes you feel, hoping it’s all a bad dream and wishing to wake up again.” Echo Ladies are Matilda Bogren, Mattis Andersson and Joar Andersén—three school-friends who, after playing together in a few different bands, realised that they worked best on their own. In 2014, after looking for “a name that represented our sound”, they became Echo Ladies, partly inspired by the name of the drum machine from another of their favourite bands, Echo & The Bunnymen (though their

Ariel Maniki and the Black Halos - Morning Tourist - The Roadside Bandits Project

Ariel Maniki and the Black Halos - Once And For All. World-renowned goth trio Ariel Maniki and the Black Halos (Costa Rica) have shared ‘Once and For All’  the second video-single from their latest album, FRACTALS. The new album is the band’s sixth full-length studio album, amidst a string of releases tracing back to their inception one decade ago. Asked about the new single, bandleader Ariel Maniki says:“…‘Once and For All’ is a difficult song to explain. But I can tell you that there was a long writing process behind it, so the ideas, inspirations, and meanings that went into it changed and grew over that time. It started as a song in Spanish, and was initially written from a very dark and personal place, hence the remaining Spanish chorus: “Hiéreme de Muerte (wound me to death)”. But I changed the other lyrics and music many times, to a point where it’s now difficult to pinpoint exactly what it is about. It touches on themes of loneliness, abandonment, and depression… wanting it al
