'Weeping Streets' is the first single with which Echo Beatty ushers a new musical venture. Almost three years after her first EP as a solo artist, Annelies Van Dinter is back with the long-awaited successor. Her album 'Vision Glitch', a dazzling feat of songwriting and capturing atmosphere on tape, is due in Spring.
'Weeping Streets' sounds like a dream sequence, mellow but unrestrained, pulsating like a heartbeat. The meaning is never completely transparent, as past, present and future collide in a déja-vu.
Annelies gathered her band in a cabin in the woods, where they recorded the major part of the new album. This joint venture brings forth an ease and warmth that is abundant in this first track. “I wanted to make an album that feels like a companion on the road. Visualizing music as a friend in the seat next to you, an open window, the wind in your hair."
