Since forming in Warrington in 2015, Man snd the Echo have relentlessly pushed forward and quickly evolved their particularly British take on indie art-pop. Men of the Moment is Man and the Echo’s second album and takes the spirit of the band’s 2017 debut and refines it into a condensed brew of uplifting rhythms, tongue-in-cheek lyricism and gleefully melodic instrumentation that form the band’s unique sonic presentation, captured expertly by producer Raf Rundell (The 2 Bears).
With Men of the Moment Gaz had the idea of writing an album as a sort of musical without a story, with the songs sung by different characters, or sometimes by several characters – most of whom are fairly unpleasant. “It resulted in this quite unsettling atmosphere provided by what feels like a conflicted and contradictory narrative. I think it’s a good way of challenging views that are not your own: inhabiting them in order to ridicule them,” muses Gaz.
