Repress! Gold Vinyl. Their mixture of guitars, synths and drum machines is more like a Venn diagram of your favourite bands and records.

At various points you can hear The Cure's 'Disintegration', The Jesus And Mary Chain's 'Automatic', New Order and A Place To Bury Strangers' total sonic annihilation, but crossed with the soaring indie-pop melodies of The Radio Dept, Alvvays, Camera Obscura and even a little bit of Saint Etienne.

This self-titled debut EP was released by Hybris in Scandinavia last year, and is reissued by Sonic Cathedral.

Echo Ladies are Matilda Bogren, Mattis Andersson and Joar Andersén, three school-friends who, after playing together in a few different bands, realised that they worked best on their own.

In 2014 they became Echo Ladies, partly inspired by the name of the drum machine from another of their favourite bands, Echo & The Bunnymen.

They don't just look back for inspiration, however, also citing The Raveonettes, The KVB and Black Marble as helping to shape their sound, but they claim their biggest influence to be effects pedals (they are now making their own to sell on tour) and "the feeling of nostalgia and hope for the future mixed with angst over defining who you are and what you will become".

This explains why so many of their songs hit that melancholy/euphoric, happy/sad sweet spot.
