Echo is known for their unique mixing of modern Chinese poetic lyrics with neo-psychedelia and dance rock. The debut album “Sensual Drive” won the Chinese Pop Music Media Awards for “Best New Band” in China and the third album “Virgin Air” was nominated by Taiwan’s Golden Melody Awards as Band of the Year. In 2013, the single “Shi-mao” was hit in China with tens of millions play counts on QQMusic and the song was praised by the media as “the divine song of the new era.”
The band was invited to many international festivals, including SXSW, CMJ, and Liverpool Sound City. British press credited Echo’s live set in Liverpool Sound City “even if you don’t understand Chinese, there is no denying that the band sound great instrumentally and have a good command of melody.” MTV IGGY have also selected Echo as “15 International Acts You Must Watch” at SXSW 2015.
