Ecco, a four-piece ambient band based out of San Luis Obispo, California, released their second album “Freedom Summer” in late September.
From start to finish ‘Freedom Summer’ is a wonderful record but ‘Beneath the Open Sky’, especially, is a standout track that showcases the band’s alluring blend of ambient and electronic sounds. Listen below.
On the release of ‘Freedom Summer’, the band said:
“Ecco began in the summer of 2007 as a passion project for four friends. In the summer of 2012 we traveled to Oakhurst, California, locked ourselves away for a week, and wrote and recorded our second album: Freedom Summer. The album spent quite a bit of time sitting while we all pursued other avenues in our lives, but we kept revisiting it over the years to add different elements to the album. The result of Freedom Summer turned out to be an entity that we all are so proud of, and what we believe to be the best music we’ve ever composed. We are so excited to share this album with the world, and hope that every listener can find a piece of it to enjoy.”
