Liverpool based label, Edils Recordings have released Phantomime a superb album from duo, Double Echo. The whole record is an unashamed nod to the eighties and is full of superb, dark synth pop. The album kicks off with the unrelenting title track which sets the tone for what’s to come and is accompanied by some highly impressive vocals. Remains has a more melodic tone to it before building up into something really good, while Playhouse is a track that particularly stands out. Although Double Echo have clearly taken a huge influence from a plethora of eighties music they still have enough of their own sound to make this an interesting record as can be heard on tracks like Metropolis and Hours. Phantomime really is a fantastic album that offers up something a little different and in Permanent HazeDouble Echo have found a superb way to bring things to an end.
