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 entitled ‘Up The River’, from their forthcoming debut album, Hot Pockets. The 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...
