Echo Raptors – Real Live Wire

echo-raptors-pressIf punk rockers travelled back in time to play a 1960’s house party, Echo Raptors would be the sound that came from that. Think 13th Floor Elevators meets Iggy Pop. The title track on Real Live Wire illustrates my point precisely with a simple formula and solid playing.

Back Seat shakes things up even further by bringing the listener back to modern times evoking the sounds of Mojo Fury, or Australia’s Jet. A groovy bridge in the middle is a distinguishing addition that sets this band apart. These gritty, dance till you drop tunes have the following effect: A. I want to hear more from this band and B. I am playing these tracks at my next party. Noelle Ellis,
