Norwegian synthpop act Echo Image returns after 14 years of silence with vinyl only release'Compulation'

The Norwegian synthpop act Echo Image have a new vinyl-only release, “Compulation”, out now on the new label HolmByKarlsen Rekords. Echo Image released their last album in 2002. “Compulation” isn’t exactly a new album as it holds a collection of songs from the band’s 4 previous releases, including one unreleased track. The album is only available on vinyl.

Here’s the tracklist:

Side A

  1. Skulk 5:34 (Compuphonic)
  2. Endless Day (Original Version) 5:04 (Endless Day single)
  3. Need To Be Proud 4:56 (Compuphonic)
  4. Frame of mind 4:27 (prev. unreleased)
  5. Good Intentions (centravibe mix) 5:06 (Compuphonic)

Side B

  1. Fading 4:37 (Compuphonic)
  2. Like A Child 5:13 (Compuphonic)
  3. Standing Alone 4:41 (Compuphonic)
  4. En Annen Verden 4:10 (Compuphonic)
  5. Will You Know 3:39 (Standing Alone b-side)

The band was formed in Fredrikstad by Pål-Magnus Rybom in 1998. They signed with the American record label ADD, released one album and 3 singles, attended over 20 compilation releases, had a song on the videogame “Dance-Dance Revolution”, won the Norwegian synth championship, and joined Apoptygma Berzerk on a 3-month European tour, before splitting up in 2002.

The band has since reunited, and are back in the studio working on new material. Here’s already a snippet of “Walk My Mind”:

A releaseparty will be held in Fredrikstad (Norway) on May 14th.
