THE LISTENING BOOTH | POWER POP ROCK N ROLL : THE ECHO WRECKS “SUNSHINE STATE OF MIND” (2017)

I am on a quest to find authentic Power Pop Rock N Roll bands out there in the modern rock wasteland and discovered a pretty cool trio calling themselves The Echo Wrecks.

Realised that I really dug the band’s 2017 single “Sunshine State of Mind” – a brilliant evocation of 70s power pop with equal parts Cheap Trick and The Raspberries as well as a smart recall of the 90s Pop Underground viz. Semisonic, Fastball, Superdrag et al.

Then a moment of embarrassment when I checked out their Facebook page – the trio David Meadows (guitar, vocals); Chris Coates (Bass and backing vocals) and Lee Roswell (Drums) – are (wait for this) based in SINGAPORE!

How in the world did I miss this? Well, better late than never. Hope to find out more. In the meantime, check it out!

still there’s more
