Echo Island – Hivernal

The next release on Dilated Time’s Synthetic side is here!

Echo Island’s gorgeous debut full-length album, “Hivernal” is here and we are honored to welcome EI’s new album to the label  as DTS.5

Check out the first single  –

Echo Island is the electronic music venture of Wisconsinite Brad Hawes. For a decade, Hawes cut his teeth playing drums in several local bands in Madison before launching Echo Island in Early 2011. In the first couple years of the project, he wrote two albums and did a handful of remixes trying to find  his footing with Echo Island. More recently, Brad asked his wife Kara to contribute as a member of Echo Island and together the Haweses, wrote and recorded their most recent and most cohesive work to date “Hivernal.” On “Hivernal”, the duo sonically brings you to a wintry Wisconsin on a wind of jazzy ambience.  Much like a white Wisconsin landscape, “Hivernal” can be cold and barren, but more often than not the songs show a strange yet mystic beauty similar to untracked snow in the dead of January.
