After turning in a remix of Rival Consoles’ “Recovery” for our Downloads section a few weeks back (a rework which made for one of the site’s Top 10 Downloads of January), Vessels returns to XLR8R with “Echo In,” a new single from the Leeds-based group’s upcoming Dilate LP (artwork above). Scheduled for a release via the Bias label in March, Dilate is set to see the five-piece outfit shedding their roots as a guitar-oriented endeavor in order to fully embrace their electronic side. “Echo In” is a fine example of Vessels’ evolving sound—streaked with spiraling synth lines and buzzing chords, the track takes shaped as a fast-moving electronic hybrid, one which is quick to weave live drums in with skittering hats, pulsing melodic samples, and sneaking Moog-like leads. “Echo In” can be downloaded below before Vessels’ new full-length record arrives next month; the group’s upcoming UK tour dates have also been included below.
