Muscular bass. Agile saxophone. Propulsive drums. Lithe guitar. In a music scene where many bands claim almost-divine levels of inspiration and originality (while still all sounding curiously alike), A Troop of Echoes shelves the self- important melodrama and delivers finely-crafted rock songs with addictive melodies, informed by exploratory harmony and the noisy experimentalism of Providence, RI. The brutal meets the beautiful.

Gear

Yamaha drums and saxophones. Fender guitar and bass guitar. Traynor and Ampeg amplifiers. Sabian and Paiste cymbals. Realistic synthesizer.
