Paddy Echo is a wishful thinker- and that's just what you need when you're getting into pop music.
This week, Paddy Echo is debuting his single "Best Friends" on Locals Only, and we're already obsessed.
After studying music after high school, and then spending two years in London, Paddy is filled with inspiration spanning from Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys), Lana Del Rey, and The Kooks.
"Those two years overseas were invaluable," he enthuses. "I learned so much about myself as a person, songwriter, and artist."
Best Friend’ is a welcome introduction to Paddy’s world and a fitting first taste of his future-retro synth-pop sound that will leave you wanting more.
“However contemporary my music might sound now, it always has to have links to the past, whether that be in the melodies or laced through the production.”
