Each of Them Echoes
Long-time friends and collaborators, Jona Rousseau and James Garside, team up for their genre-clashing electronic/alternative crossover project, Each of Them Echoes. Armed with a techno/retro toolkit of electronic drums and synthesisers, dusty blues guitars and baritone vocals, they collide their distinct musical backgrounds - crafting the fragments into a reflective, emotionally-charged and decidedly unique sound.
Rousseau enjoyed early recognition as the frontman of angst-ridden alt-rock band, Novena Salvo, with his three brothers. Garside’s formative inspiration came in the shape of daytime parties and warehouse raves - with a list of his own house and techno productions released under various pseudonyms. After a long, unintentional hiatus called life, both found themselves living in London and desperately searching to find a musical outlet for their challenges and internal conflicts. The result was the Escape Everything label - co-founded by the duo in 2015 and now home of their debut collaboration EP - Polaris.
Made up of four raw, hypnotic grooves with atmospheric keys, bluesy guitar riffs and Rousseau’s heavily processed vocals, Polaris EP sees Each of Them Echoes embark on an introspective exploration of the challenges that confront us all in simply trying to make sense of the world.
Polaris EP is out 30th November on Escape Everything. Listen in full below or download from our press pack.
The Music Video
The music video for lead single, 'Don't You See Me Go', features 84-year-old jazz drummer legend, Don Cook, doing what he does best at dawn on Hounslow Heath.
"This whole project was born from our frustrations at being stuck, working in offices and not getting to spend as much time as we’d like on the things we enjoy most. I guess the video is symbolic of that - of not wanting to get to a point in life where you look back and realise you never got round to the things you really wanted." - James Garside
