This springtime just got more tropical. We just discovered the debut single by the fresh new band Pooside Echo from Ghent. Only formed at the end of last year, but already they got noticed in some of the better music rallies in Belgium. With a background in indie-pop, singer Xavier De Clercq reveals a more mature side of himself in “We Will Grow”.
This laid-back slow jam, produced by Jasper Maekelberg, who worked before with Faces on Tv and Soldier’s Heart, takes off on a noisy back beat that changes the direction of the song continuously from a dark to an exotic and bright atmosphere, making the song bathe in an ambiguous and intriguing greatness. A feeling that is wonderfully well translated in the video, where a dancer, all alone among the wild plants in a greenhouse gives a distant performance that fits the odd-worldly vibe of the song. As we speak Xavier is working on more songs and are getting ready to do some more shows. So follow this band on Soundcloud & Facebook for all updates!
