door Eckhardt and the House
Over the last three years, Eckhardt And The House treated the listener to eight singles and an album release full of laid-back, easy listening, trendy nerdy and surprisingly accessible hipster sounds. 2018 started with a new logo, a different style of artwork and most of all, a change of sound. But all that with keeping the existing Eckhardt And The House fan in mind.
Previous single If You Cannot Talk did very well on Dutch radio and was played for months on national, regional and local stations. It also got airplay on radiostations from The Filippines to Norway and from Germany to the USA. It was featured on many Spotify playlists, reached the number 4 position on the Hypem Popular Now Chart, press coverage rolled in from Germany, UK, and the United States a.o.

Xune Mag – “Instantly likeable and infectiously danceable, given the right exposure, this single could easily be the unexpected hit of the year.” (USA)

Eckhardt And The House is moving mountains in 2018
Eckhardt And The House has developed towards a more uptempo and danceable indie sound but certainly didn’t lose any charm. The band has been taking elements from pop to avant-garde to funk and twisted it all up into a signature sound with wild experimentation and disregard for the norm.
New single Mountains reminds us of Talking Heads glory days on the one hand and nowadays Modest Mouse on the other. The track is produced by Ash Workman who is known for his work with Christine and The Queens, Metronomy, Baxter Dury a.o.
