Twangy and crooning guitar chords usher in “Echoes” like a soft wave breaking on a seabed. Matthew Francis’s hazy, lazy atmospheric progressions remind me of Mac Demarco’s compositions that hover between rock, folk, and soft psych. The result is a lightly lush soundscape, ethereally entrancing with welcome meandering. Warming and effortlessly flowing vocal melodies remind me of John Lennon. “Echoes” is a pleasantly engrossing track for those moments you want to get lost in your longing thoughts.
