Genesis fans rejoice! But more than that, fans of Tony Banks’ songwriting will more than appreciate Five, the band’s keyboards player’s new orchestral album, which will also appeal to classical music and film score enthusiasts.

ECHODRONE’S NEW ALBUM FIVE IS HEAD MUSIC FOR OUR TIMESECHODRONE’S NEW ALBUM FIVE IS HEAD MUSIC FOR OUR TIMES
A band that lives up to its name! SF outfit Echodrone finds a nice balance between 90s shoegaze and new millennial electronica, covering the gamut from driving rock to ambient textures with equal intensity. Consisting of Brandon Dudley, Eugene Suh, Jim Hrabak, Mike Funk & Rachel Lopez, the quintet has been active since 2005 and latest album – Five – finds the band in an assured place creatively, bringing together the pleasing elements of soaring guitars, pummeling rhythms and hypnotic motifs to produce a work that hits all the right buttons.
We got in touch with Echodrone to find out more about what the band are about.
