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.

With a slow burning, reverb drenched sound, Echotide are an Australian cinematic/post rock three piece with a dynamic approach ranging from delicate and introspective ambience to an all-encompassing wall-of-sound.
supported by 36 fans who also own “as our floodlights gave way to dawn”
If you wan´t to name a mentionable band for the genre post-rock, you have to list these guys!
I´m always deeply impressed if a band says "hey - we made an album and we tried to make it sound like X".
So you put on your headphones and listen and you can completely relate to the story the songs are telling you. You can feel the thing entirely.
