Today Echotape's Mike Burford tells us about the song "Far From Heaven" which comes from their brand new album "Collective". Here is the story:
"Far From Heaven" was one of the quickest songs we've written! We wrote it in around an hour after a jamming session with Youth, who ended up producing our album. He invited us to his house in London after hearing an old demo and got the best out of us in that short afternoon collaboration!
It was a real spontaneous track that was born from our subconscious. Youth likes to get you working as fast as possible and to not think about what you're coming up with so all the guitar lines were written on the spot along with the main melody line.
On the strength of this song, Youth offered to record our debut album. We did this, recording the final version of the song, at his studio in the south of Spain. It was a picturesque surrounding on top of a mountain with the most amazing view. It was nice for the song to be recorded in such a perfect location!
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and watch the video here and learn more about the album right here!
