We discovered this gem during the closing credits on HBO’s GIRLS, one of our new most favorite shows of all time. At first listen, you might think that the low male voice is from the Arcade Fire’s Win Butler. Listen again. It’s a combination of on-and-off-again couple Jake Rabinbach and Shannon Esper who make up The Echo-Friendly. Last summer they released “Same Mistakes” on Cantora Records and are planning to release their debut full length album this spring. Well we’re waiting.
Besides an amazing vocal-dou, the two are also ex-lovers and still best friends who live just two blocks from each other in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
