Formed in Barcelona in the summer of 2015, About leaving is the new project from members and former members of the bands Ears, Jilguero, Furguson and Ohios.
After a few local shows, in which they presented their self-titled EP, the band is ready to release their first LP through Engineer Records and Pick Your Twelve.
As with many debuts, the album features a wide variety of genres with which the band feels comfortable and brings their own style.
The album title could very well refer to the many influences that resonate, as nice familiar echoes, through its 11 songs. Thus, “An echo” is a purposely contrasted album, which may be the reason the band chose the versatile musician Victor Teller (Zimt, Oso, Her Only Presence) as producer. The 4:32 minutes of the song ‘Of Those Things (that I say & I shouldn’t say)’ are the perfect summary of multifaceted personality of the young musicians. Three moods merge into a unique song. Quickly escalating from utter calm into a perfect storm, only to go back to an acoustic, deeply heart-felt, ending.
The album also has semi-instrumental pieces like ‘Withered flowers’, small jewels of autumnal power pop as ‘Unfolded’ and dark, pungent, guitar-filled tunes like ‘Weary Monuments’. However, they all have something in common: a very particular and special voice and a very confessional lyrical style that will trap and excite you.
For fans of American Football, Title Fight, Mineral, Cloud Nothings, and Pinkerton era Weezer.
