Seven symphonies for life, for reverb, for red wine, for smw and the hz, for old flames, for family, for out of tune pianos, for a girl, for friends around dinner tables, for storms, for drunken fights and sober paths home, for daydreams, for broken drum sticks, new guitar strings and ringing ears, for confusion and for clarity. It's yours for free.

Capable of bringing rooms to a standstill, moving from vastly atmospheric and minimalist to symphonic and confronting, Echotide's kaleidoscopic, immersive wall of sound is an instrumental exploration of post, psychedelic and progressive rock.
