Dead Writers – Echoes in the sun

Latest single from London based Dead Writers tones back some classic Britpop sounds to create a chilled out but vibrant track, which feels like a real summer soundtrack piece.

Echoes in the Sun’ is the second single since the bands formation in 2017, and this is a song that even in harsh bite of British winter conjures up images of driving along, windows down, sunglasses on and sun blazing. It appears to take influence from the likes of Dodgy, but they have taken much of the ‘pop’ out of this Britpop core and what’s left is a charming, floaty and melodic sound.


It does have times where it is seemingly going to become a more ordinary indie track, with some particularly impressive riffs phasing in and out throughout, but I’m glad they kept that almost stoned element to it and kept away from going too heavy, as it suits the vocals down to the ground. 

The whole piece seems to feel like a film soundtrack, mainly due to its aforementioned ability to bring up imagery as you’re listening. Again, this comes from their willingness to not push the track too hard to be an ‘indie’ track, and let the whole thing feel organic, not an easy thing to do for a new band. 

I will certainly be looking forward to their next single, give these guys a listen, they’re well worth it…
