The Single Girl: Artifacts, “Echoes”

London five piece, Artifacts release their first single today and it’s quite an impressive one at that. The mild mannered looking young lads certainly have a knack for writing a big indie anthem and “Echoes” is hopefully the first of many.

What Artifacts do is take the best of what indie has had to offer in the last five years and amalgamate that sound into something really epic and beautiful. “Echoes” makes you feel like you can run a million miles or climb the highest mountain—this is epic electro tinged indie at its best.

Although they state their influences as Radiohead and My Bloody Valentine, this is hard to hear; imagine a dreamier sounding White Lies, or a slightly more light-hearted Editors, and they’re something in between. “Echoes” layers etherial soundscapes with hectic indie beats that will have you humming along by the end.

With another single promised sometime soon, we can’t wait to see what these boys have in store for us next.
