BandAlternativeEDM

Echostream's commercially edgy sound fuses electronica and rock with the atmospheric sounds of film music. Influences include NIN, Bjork, and Radiohead.

Biography

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Think of a film, then think of the soundtrack for that film. If the film you have called into your mind is suspenseful and full of vivid imagery, then you have begun to imagine the perfect home for the electro-rock style of echostream.

Often compared to Björk, Evanescence, and Nine Inch Nails, Echostream has created a refreshingly unique style in a world full of cookie-cutter bands and pop-wannabes. This is due in part to Tony and Ryoko’s classical training, and in part to their intense desire to walk down the path less traveled. This is a band that is not interested in following in the wake of others. They are instead focused on forging new paths through the forest.

Echostream’s debut album Identity (Force of Change Records), was well received by fans and critics, and songs have been featured on TV in the US. The band is currently working on a follow-up album that draws from elements of the first, but will certainly take emotions to new levels of intensity.

They are now booking shows around the world to spread there virus to the multitudes. Fans can expect extreme energy and passion from this band that takes their live shows very seriously.

Lyrics

Just Kill Me

Written By: echostream

I can't escape from here
The darkness is eating my mind
I don't know how to tell you that
You don't know why
You don't know why

I can't escape from here
The silence is eating my wound
Before the sun is cold
I gotta go
I gotta go

Chorus:
Morning dew's a sign for flying away
Now it's time to go to find your way
Footsteps all around me in the snow
Nothing else can stay in this world

I forgot how to touch my heart
My body is floating away
Snow is falling down on my face
Like trying to hide my existence

(Chorus)

Don't look at me with your fake eyes
Don't look at me with your fake words
Don't hurt me again with your fake smile
Don't hold me tight just kill me

Don't hold me tight just kill me

Fall Down

Written By: echostream

We were here before
We keep coming back for more
We're pulled into the shadows

You don't understand
You don't know who I am
Even though I told you

I look inside
But nothin's there
I want to hide
But I don't know where

Don't think of how it's made
Doesn't matter anyway
It all gets broken someday

Nothin stays the same
But no one is to blame
It doesn't matter anyway

Built up inside
Let it out
It dies inside
Just let it out

You know we built it up
to all fall down

Staring at the sun
The whole world comes undone
Nothing stays together

I try to see inside
But no matter how I try
Everything is in the shadows

You know we built it up
to all fall down

Rip You Down

Written By: echostream

Watching you from far away
I see it all and nothing
I smell your hair, don't touch your face
I can't remember smiling

Where were you when all this fell?
Were you walking in the summer?
Now the time has come for winter
But the snow is always rusting

Looking at the streets of swine
Everybody smells the same
The animal inside of me
Wants to eat and eat and eat

Rip you down and cry

Contagious

Written By: echostream

Everybody needs
and everyone is lonely
Everybody bleeds
and everyone is holy

Look inside myself
Try to see my soul
Everywhere I look
I'm losing my control
Find me.

Don't touch me, don't come near me
I'm contagious, I'm contagious
I can feel it in every breath I take
Every breath I take

Nothing's what it seems
and nothing's ever only
You know what I mean
cause you're the one who told me

Step inside my home
Watch me cut my faith
The blood is from my bone
It helps me clean this slate
Help me

Don't touch me, don't come near me
I'm contagious, I'm contagious
I can feel it in every breath I take
Every breath I take

Don't touch me, don't come near me
I'm contagious, I'm so alone
I can feel it in every breath I take
Every breath I take

And every time I open up
I want to tear away your hold

[chorus]

Simplify

Written By: echostream

Take my eye
Make it bleed
My feeling too
My need
Sing to me
What you see
Give me light
Make me free

I want to simplify
Oh, I need to simplify
My life

All the pain you are
Can build me up once more
All the hurt you see
Please give your pain to me
Simplify

Invisible but way to here
Fuck it all, disappear
The other side
In front of you
So far away
So near

I want to divide
Oh, I need to divide
My life

All the pain you are
Can build me up once more
All the hurt you see
Please give yourself to me
Simplify
