Echo Drama are a 9-piece Reggae, Dub, Hip Hop Melbourne band fronted by the dynamic vocal duo of Zimbabwean born Soul singer ‘Thando’ and gifted rapper ‘Sinks’ (Recipient of 2017 Hilltop Hoods Initiative). At times affectionately described as “the angriest reggae band ever”, Echo Drama have a sound steeped in the traditions of Reggae and Dub but are not afraid to draw on elements of Rock, Dubstep, Dancehall, Latin, Jazz, Funk and Soul.
A staple in the Australian venue and festival circuit, Echo Drama have performed around 150 shows across VIC, NSW, ACT, NSW, QLD and SA, refining an explosive live experience. Following the release of debut EP “Bury The Weapons” in 2014, the long awaited release of debut LP “Before It All Ends” is impending, with the first single and video clip from the record “Insanity” freshly released in June.
Insanity is a heavy Dub and Rock influenced Hip Hop tune exploring how people are so fixated with self preservation they tend to turn a blind eye to things that happen if they don’t affect them. Big riffs, distorted horns, rapid fire raps, a dynamic soul hook and a twisted sax solo. It’s all there.
