Surf Rockers The Echo Ohs Unveil New Song 'Up the River' + Announce Debut Album

Thursday 16th March, 2017 9:30AM

Auckland psych-surf stalwarts The Echo Ohs have dropped a delay-drenched cut titled ‘Up The River’, plucked from their forthcoming debut album, Hot Pockets. The upcoming LP was recorded by guitarist Guy Forks at the trio's old Waist Deep studio on a TEAC four-track tape machine, and then mastered by Spot On Sound in the States. Writing about the record, frontwoman Yolanda Fagan told UTR:

"It's a good mix of the songs that represent us. Some spooky thematic instrumental, some short two minute crackers. It's somewhat live feeling but we've put a few extra pieces in there. That's a bit new for us. We like to keep it stripped back up this time Guy and I had fun adding very subtle overdubs."

Hot Pockets
will be released on vinyl later this year by local label 1:12 Records, who have also released records for the likes of Roy Irwin, Las Tetas, The Conjurors, and The Cavemen. In the meantime take a swim 'Up The River' below, which comes accompanied by a video of feedback and floating lips to keep you mesmerised as you listen...
