'My new favourite band' - Amazing Radio DJ


Opening track 'Where Are You Now' is steely and linear with chiming guitars and a downbeat feel that never sinks into self-absorbed whimsy. The piano-led 'Survive' is a chilly, questing paean to the power of love in the face of global catastrophe which is about twenty times better than that might sound. Together with the elegantly understated 'Seeds', the song shows off the band's strengths, in particular Jonny's voice - delicately powerful, calmly emotive – although both sound like they've sneaked out the back of 'The Bends'. Nightshift, May 2008 - Nightshift


The crystalline pop of 'Where Are You Now', the lead track of Echo Boomer's debut album, reminds me of the late lamented Gene. Everything from vocals to the music sounds so precise, yet still full of emotion, a difficult trick to pull off indeed….'Survive' is excellent stuff and the potential to be the big hit. It's as if the band are adrift at sea, but as everything's perfectly calm, they're blissfully happy to be there. Jonny's vocals ride the surface safe in the knowledge everything will be fine.

Lead track ‘The Circle’ is strung-out indie rock, full of epic introspection, balanced neatly on a snowbound funk rhythm that recalls Kraftwerk’s ‘Trans- Europe Express’. This formula works best on ‘Learning To Lie’, an oddly robotic slab of electro-rock that gets you to thinking about Ultravox at times and led by Jonny Race’s powerful, questing voice…..they sound like a band preparing themselves for bigger things.
- Nightshift, Oxford


'You Are' is gorgeous widescreen turbulence, and something definitely influenced by Guillemots second album, in that the tracks that moved to more middle of the road, but with a quirky identity. It springs along, in a Bladerunner landscape, with an airy, ominous vocal. - Russ
