SPC ECO announces 'Fifteen' LP, previews lead track 'The Heart and Soul'
“What might have happened if the former Cocteau Twins chanteuse had started a side project with members of Massive Attack following the success of their 1998 classic Mezzanine” - AllMusic
"Rose and Dean are perfect together, as they’ve demonstrated time and again through stellar works loaded with rhythm and attitude – menacing and dark on the one hand, and heartfelt and playful on the other" - Big Takeover Magazine "Wonderfully evocative atmospheric pop that other artists would die for... perfectly judged balance between darkness and light, sugar and spite" - The VPME
"Electric echoes encompassed in a world of deep maroon" - Impose Magazine
SPC ECO has announced its new album 'Fifteen', which will be issued digitally. This release follows the band's 'Calm' LP and 'Under My Skin' EP, both released in 2018. Ahead of that, they are previewing the lead single 'The Heart and Soul'.
An electronic musical maverick, Dean's style complements Berlin's vulnerable yet tender vocals. As a father and daughter, they explore their relationship and the world around them through music, creating heartfelt sounds to express the language of their souls and conversations that are often too difficult to be encapsulated by mere words.
"This album means everything to us. A collection of songs that simply happened to us over a period of the 9 months or so it took to record, during which time there have been numerous uncomfortable, unsettling and challenging changes all around us, not just to our personal real life situations as to where we live, but also to the catastrophe of various unaccountable, blatantly corrupt governing bodies that perch menacingly over us all like death itself," says Dean Garcia.
"This record is about that, this and the other, a selection of recordings that mean more to us than we can ever possibly know. We do know they're our escape and energy, the glue that keeps our family together, the means to cope, deal and adapt which all goes towards making it The Heart and Soul of us, which by careful consideration is the first track we're releasing to introduce this record."
With minimal symphonic landscaping and gossamer vocals, SPC ECO have created something that is vast and beautifully pervasive. Here we find a collection of moods, wistful reflections made into sound, and barely tangible but emotively powerful expressions. Last year, the 25-year-anniversary of Curve brought releases of deluxe editions of both 'Cuckoo' and 'Doppelganger' and output from Dean Garcia's other sonic adventures, including S T F U with Preston Maddox, Blurred City Lights with Jarek Leskiewicz, and two collaborative tracks with dreampop outfit Ummagma. He also releases as M A D, together with Steve Monti from Jesus & Mary Chain.
