Brooklyn folk-rockers Echo Bloom announce the release Blue Shift, the live take of 2013’s Blue, today. Representative of the rebirth of Blue in a live setting and encompassing the efforts of 15 hard-working musicians, Blue Shift was recorded at St. Mary’s Church in Harlem, capturing the one-day-only concert put on for family and friends.

Of the inspiration for the live record, bandleader Kyle Evans says, “Art isn’t ever really done, it just gets taken away from you at some point. At that moment it’s frozen in time. Blue Shift is the breathing snapshot of what Blue is turning into.” Comprised of Blue in its entirety as well as premium exclusive content including 7 additional bonus tracks and 4 bonus videos, the live recording and videos includes a plethora of instruments from guitar and banjo to viola, french horn and oboe.

More about Echo Bloom:
Formed in 2009, Echo Bloom is headed by lead vocalist/guitarist and prolific songwriter Kyle Evans. A Florida native, Evans grew up in the southern Bible Belt, inspiring the lush textures and chamber instrumentation of Blue, which he coins as a folk-estral record.  Full of biblical allusions, the album implies a personal spirituality at its core. Blue is the first of a three-album series, which will include country-shoegaze album Red, and Green, a classic pop record, set to be released separately in 2014. Echo Bloom is currently based in Brooklyn, New York and will be touring the US and Europe in the coming year.
