Dead Leaf Echo have joined Neon Sigh for their upcoming releases, Birth (7″) and Thought & Language, the new LP.
Dead Leaf Echo is a NYC arts collective which incorporates elements of ambient, baroque, dreampop, shoegaze, new wave, and goth, crafting every aspect of their sound and vision to remain one of the few pop bands willing to work on high-art as concept. Chiming tuiars in twin stereo reverbs with shimmering vocals and silky basslines.
“Thought & Language” was mixed by John Fryer and features sleeve art from Vaughan Oliver of v23. Each of these visionaries have played key roles in the development of the best in modern music, most notably in their work for iconic label 4AD and with bands such as NIN, Lush, Cocteau Twins, Pixies, Bauhaus, Depeche Mode, This Mortal Coil and dozens more. Consider these releases a return to the unforgettable, while forging ahead into new realms of songwriting.
The LP is a concept album that follows the conception and birth of a child and his discovery of thought and language. The album is scheduled for release 5th March 2013 with the 7″ single Birth preceding it in late Feburary.
