Rock/pop band Echo Black has teamed up with Huffington Post Queer Voices to release their new single “Disappear”. Fans can stream the track now, HERE. Vocalist, Danny Blu wrote the song for his significant other while reflecting on past relationships, realizing that what he had may in fact be the real thing. When asked about the importance of the song, Danny said: “’Disappear’ is definitely one of the most personal songs I've ever written lyrically. It's autobiographical. We wanted to release it as a B-side to ‘Chemicals’ for that reason. ‘Chemicals’ is a big power ballad, and ‘Disappear’ is much more introspective. I'm very proud of this song, as are we all; we've definitely never put out anything like it before. It's a pretty vulnerable song and I hope it speaks to people.”
Last month, the band premiered their music video for “Chemicals” exclusively on Billboard.“Chemicals” was produced by Matt Squire (One Direction, Kesha, Ariana Grande) as well as Andros Rodriguez (Shakira, Justin Timberlake) and directed by Chris Newhard (Sia, Jessie J, Train). The four-piece has come a long way since their debut late last year, making an organic shift from the constrains of industrial rock into the pop world. With diverse backgrounds and influences ranging from classic rock, basement punk, and pop music production to drag culture and experimental makeup, Echo Black keeps their fans on their feet with every release. "Chemicals" is a perfect example of the band pushing boundaries as the video stars a same-sex couple in a rock tragedy.
This summer, Echo Black unleashed their music video for "Perfect" featuring Telle Smith of The Word Alive exclusively on Fuse. One week prior to the release, the band unleashed the track on Alternative Press, receiving up to 10,000 shares in under 7 days. In 2015, they teamed up with Revolver to launch their debut music video “Burn Another Day”. The track and video features Davey Suicide, who the band toured with last fall along with Combichrist and The Birthday Massacre. Danny asserts, “We are hungry and we are coming out with guns blazing”.
New York City-based rock/pop foursome Echo Black is comprised of members whose musical inspirations range from basement punk to Frank Sinatra, and everything in between. The boys credit their unique, catchy, pop-flavored sound to their writing process; echoing one idea off another and, bouncing components around until the song begins to speak to them. Danny Blu (vocalist) and Billy Long (drums, keys) have roots that go back as far as the high school marching band. They picked up Felix Skiver(guitar, vocals) and Rob Gnarly (bass, vocals) along the way and have been inseparable since. As if their blood-pumping music wasn't enough, their live show is something you have to see to understand. Nothing short of an electrical storm of energy, Echo Black is not an act to be missed.
