Artifacts release ‘Echoes’ single!

February 3, 2013


For Fans of… Foals, White Lies, Editors

 “…soundscapes of pure ecstasy.” – Artrocker

London based five piece, Artifacts, unleash their dreamy soundscapes with the their brilliant single Echoes, which is out now.

Formed in secondary school by Patrick Fitzroy (vocals/guitar), Mark Rivers (sampler/keyboards) and Craig Brown (drums/vocals), Artifacts really honed their sound after adding Sam Upton (guitar) and Tom Doyle (bass guitar) to complete the current line-up. With influences ranging from My Bloody Valentine and Jeff Buckley to Sigur Ros and Radiohead, Artifacts have pulled on a range of influences that has allowed them to maintain a fresh, varied and distinctive sound unbound by specific genres.

Echoes is available to stream now via Artifacts Soundcloud page.

The band have developed a diverse sound, cultivating an ability to create both tender and introspective moments as well as raw, edgy melodies which erupt into a crescendo of noise. This is captured perfectly in the single Echoes – a heartfelt opening that builds into high octane vocals, with a smattering of electro and epic guitars, before turning back on itself as the chorus kicks in and melds the track together.

2013 should see a breakthrough for the band with the release of Echoes and the forthcoming single Sad Face due shortly after. The boys will be kept on their toes as well with a UK/European tour currently in the works for March and April.

Echoes is available to buy now from iTunes for just 79p.
