Musical Crush - Echo Beatty

A few weeks ago, thanks to dj Pop Rules, I discovered a Belgian duet from Antwerp called Echo Beatty. I have to admit I'm still looking for the right words to describe what I felt the first time I listened to their EP "Tiny Organs of Trust" without being misunderstood.

Echo Beatty, is Annelies Van Dinter, a woman, a voice, soft, emotional, soulfully mixed with a certain feeling of strength…

Echo Beatty is Jochem Baelu, a man, a music, nostalgic, confused, mind touching, overwhelming with depth and meaning…

All through the songs, the duo is literally putting you on a personal path. The atmosphere, the melody, the voice are directly speaking to your soul. It's like it was written just for you. Like if they knew all you've been through your whole life and transform it into songs.

As their Facebook page says: "Echo Beatty is a duo of rambling souls. Armed with an old organ, a vibraphonette, a set of hair combs, guitars, metal springs, a loop station and a drum; they roam the sonic plains searching for rapture. She sings her soul out and he enfolds her in atmospheric sound tapestry. Echo Beatty evokes disturbing beauty that can sound vast and forbidding as well as soft and vulnerable in the same moment."

I could try to compare them to other existing artists, but it would be impossible for me to find one that makes you feel all those emotions at the same time. I could also used every adjective in the world it would not be enough to describe it.

The best way for you to understand what I felt is to go see them live in Brussels This Thursday (16th) @ Chaff (Place du Jeu de Balle) and next Monday (21st) @ Bar du Matin. (Place Albert)
