The 405 News :: Love Echo – ‘Lovecats’ [Listen]


The Tokyo via Luxembourg duo of vocalist Vicki Glass and Vic Miranda craft luscious bubbles of dream pop under the name of Love Echo, and here have covered The Cure’s ‘Lovecats’ in a highly individualistic and engaging way.

How? Well, partly through a lack of perspicacity as Vic had never listened to the track prior to recording – instead relying on Vicki’s swooning vocals, thus allowing a beautiful insurrectionary take on Robert Smith’s classic track. It’s taken from upcoming album I Promise You Always the Sky that’s a joyful bucolic journey amid a woozy headspace – be sure to check out the track ‘We’ on Love Echo’s Soundcloud too.

I Promise You Always the Sky is out January 28th via Portuguese label LebensStrasse Records (also home to Sun Glitters and Slow Magic).
